More Genesis trivia questions

  • I'd been saving these questions for the Genesis Trivia Quiz thread, but that seems to have stopped getting posted to, and I wasn't likely to get a turn anytime soon anyway. So here they are. These don't call for any inside knowledge or anything; the answers are just mundane things that I've observed.


    (1) Among Genesis studio albums, what is only true of their first 3 (FGTR / Trespass / Nursery) and their last (CAS)?

    (Hint: This is technically true of every band's first album, but Genesis's has a better claim to this than most.)


    (2) Among Genesis studio album tracks, what is uniquely true about "Los Endos" and "No Son of Mine"?


    (3) Among Genesis studio album tracks, "The Serpent" represents one extreme and "A Trick Of The Tail" represents the other. What are the opposite things that are true of these two tracks?

  • Henry & Sredni - Correct all around!


    As for #3 - This will be a tough question. Hint: It's observable from the track information (as seen in, say, Wikipedia), but I had to know the basic track information from all Genesis studio albums in order to figure it out.

  • Number 3:


    The Serpent is the longest track on FGTR, but it is the shortest longest track on any Genesis album


    Shipwrecked is the shortest track on CAS, but it is the longest shortest track on any Genesis album



    I haven't actually checked this by the way!

  • Raelway Siding -- You got the answer correct, even though I just realized I had the question wrong! Well done!


    The actual "longest shortest" track would be "A Trick Of The Tail." I have corrected this above.
