I've been a big Genesis fan since Wind & Wuthering. Seconds Out is one if my favorite post-Gabriel albums, along with W & W and Trick of the Tail. I love all the Gabriel era albums, each for different songs & different reasons.
Because I've been a fan for nearly 40 years, I find myself being drawn to things I haven't "over listened" to - albums like Trespass and tracks such as "Can-Utility and the Coastliners," "The Fountain Of Salmacis," "Hairless Heart" & "Blood on the Rooftops."
I started slowly losing interest after Hackett left as each album turned more poppy and eventually became unlistenable. I saw the Collins version of the band 4 times & really wish I'd been able to catch them during Gabriel's time. With all the different reunion tours that happen every year, it sure would be nice to see Genesis give it a go(while they are still able to).
I just discovered a bunch of videos on youtube which are essentially interviews with all the band members talking about each album individually. They are great fun to watch & learn about the band's process & thinking at the time. Here's the vid with the Foxtrot interviews...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlCN2gBKazI&list=PLTLIpQ7SqcsinxnSA_evE2IehfVjvmA8J&index=2post Gabriel, who wrote the lyrics?
- They all took turns, with Banks doing a bit more of it in the early post Gabriel time. During the Gabriel era I think Peter was responsible for about half the lyrics except for The Lamb on which he wrote all of the lyrics.How about those 2008 reissues?
- I generally really like all the reissues, I was able to hear things that I hadn't noticed before.
