Genesis Artist Snapshot:

One of the seminal progressive rock bands, Genesis began in the late-'60s as post-Beatles visionaries with a taste for orchestrated pop melodrama, but quickly mutated into purveyors of ambitious, classical-tinged art rock. After flamboyantly theatrical vocalist Peter Gabriel left (eventually followed by guitarist Steve Hackett), the group gradually turned toward more accessible material under the stewardship of singing drummer Phil Collins. By the '80s, Genesis had become an unstoppable hit-singles machine. Meanwhile, both Gabriel and Collins went on to lucrative solo careers. The band called it a day in 1997, shortly following Collins's departure, but reunited a decade later for a major world tour.

Album Description

Original CD pressing of the 1973 album from the British Prog icons. EMI.

Product Notes

Often overshadowed by its immediate successor--The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway--this 1974 album features Genesis concert favorites such as the baroque "Firth of Fifth" and the epic "Cinema Show." It yields the group''s first British hit, "I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)." Singer Peter Gabriel''s heady mixture of dark drama and cryptic commentary is tied to some of the band''s most stunning arrangements: Steve Hackett''s violin-like guitar melodies on "Firth of Fifth," Tony Banks''s synth arpeggios on "The Battle of Epping Forest," and crisp, tight drumming throughout from Phil Collins. Collins makes his Genesis lead vocal debut on the acoustic "More Fool Me." The complex structures and poetic risks taken here may throw fans of later Genesis hits such as the cute "Abacab," but it''s well worth coming along for the ride. --James Rotondi

5 out of 5 stars simply the best..., January 20, 2008

Let it be known, I have never participated in this rating game business...That having been said, this is one of those rarest of gems, the whole far exceeding the sum of its parts- (Its) the most poetically conceived, and the most meticulously executed musical performance since Miles Davis ESP.
