Agreed....I wasn't big on their real "pop" stuff, either...
Funny...it seems as Genesis has two types of fans. They either like their older music or their newer Music....I guess that can be said for a lot of bands. :)
I can certainly appreciate their old stuff, "Lamb Lies Down", etc etc...and like it! But, "some" of their older material kinda got a bit too boring after listening for too long. Well, maybe boring is too harsh of a word...Maybe monotonous (to my ears)
But, I have to admit, I really liked what Phil Collins did with his first few albums with Genesis. (To a point) Again, I didn't like everything, because they got way too "poppy" & "cheesy" in the 90's.
But, ABACAB album really rocked! And the musicianship was smokin'!
Then, you have songs like
> Just A Job To Do
> Home By The Sea
> Turn It On Again
They are some incredible tunes (in their own right), and some serious singing by Phil. Really good stuff.
