A Curious Collection Of Songs by Genesis

Advantages: Some fantastic, thought-provoking, catchy songs. Lots of variation in style.
Disadvantages: A couple of weaker tracks.

...This self-titled (also known as 'The Shapes') album was released by the Genesis threesome of Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford in 1983. The album was given it's eponymous title to mark the fact that the band had worked on all nine songs as a un ...

The real owner of that lonely heart..

Disadvantages: Probably not for a true yes fans

I didn't buy a copy of this album until around 1994 when I was a student at Loughborough University. Living the student lifestyle at the time music became a great source of relaxation and I thought it really was about time I bought a copy of this and I'l ...
