The End Of An Era...

Advantages: Arguably the band's best album.
Disadvantages: None.

This was the last album produced by the remaining trio of Genesis band members Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford and Phil Collins before Collins quit to concentrate on his solo music and engage on a quest to win an Oscar! Released in 1991, the style of the mus ...

Jesus he knows me, and he knows this rocks

Advantages: Compelling listening, Great tracks
Disadvantages: Feels a little bit disjointed

When it comes to talented British bands few can stand on the same level as the excellent Genesis, a band that oozes talent from every pore even if it does consist of a few relatively boring characters such as Phil Collins. The band have an almost unrivall ...

Fear of a wonderful record!

Advantages: Perfect balance of songs
