    Calling All Stations - Progressive, Neo-progressive, Or Neither?

    When CAS first came out in 1997, I bought it after only having heard bits and pieces of the title track "Calling All Stations". For the most part, I'm OK with Ray Wilson's vocals, and Tony and Mike once again prove what solid, seasoned musicians they are. My understanding is...

    But now, now I've lost everything,

    They Were My First "favorite Band"

    I started out as a kid liking Phil Collins, which led to my interest in Genesis. Fortunately, my  interest led me into the wonderful world of Gabriel-era Genesis. I have tons of bootlegs and still love the band to this day. To me, A Trick of the Tail is the last great...

    Genesis Has Been My Overall Favorite For Over 30 Years

    You all took the words out of my (in this case) fingers. But don't forget about The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway which is also a major masterpiece.

    My folks were hippies and turned me on to all sorts of music outside of the normal (even for the early-1970s) FM AOR stations. For some reason, they never shined on Yes or Genesis. I had to make that venture myself. It was actually my mom who turned me on to Peter Gabriel as a...

    Though Your Ship Be Sturdy, No Mercy Has The Sea. Will You Survive On The Ocean Of Being?

    Since My Teens

    I discovered that group and have loved it a lot ever since. There're so many songs I love. But one I feel more maybe, that is No son of mine.
