Do The Neurotic
I don't like it. Plain and simple. Looks like something that would show up on a bootleg cover.
The third issue, people in American whined on about excessive stereo compression, despite the boxsets being about the Surround sound from the very inception.
Um, I know for a fact it wasn't just Americans that complained. There were quite a few Brits that didn't like it either as they voiced their displeasure on the older forums at the time they were released. Don't judge by trying to pin this on one group.
Why bother with such a long breakdown? All you need to do is go to setlist.fm pick your concert date and scroll down to "Songs on Albums" to see the graphic and songs from each album:
Invisible Touch was the highest with 5 (not my most liked album unfortunately) followed by Genesis Mama and Selling England with 4 each.
Maybe he would prefer to do it his way? I thought it was a better, more detailed list than the one you linked to and I enjoyed reading it!
I would much prefer looking at "time spent" playing songs from various albums in the current setlist as this is a much better indicator of representation. Three brief snippets from SEBTP aren't even close to 4-5 full songs from '80s albums.
Then why don't you make that list so we can compare?
I really enjoyed the interviews with Hugh Padgham. He really added some insight to the recording process that Genesis undertook. As far as the Jim Yukich interview, he sounded too much like a fan and tended to ramble a lot. Thanks for letting us know about the interviews!
Just received the same information from a different source
Excellent! BTW, I got a message that the 1975-2021 book will be on my doorstep today. Maybe if I time it right, I'll have it read by the time the first book gets re-released. Just looking at the book previews, I think these two books could rival Armando Gallo's books and are just as informative as Chapter and Verse!
I was thinking the same thing. Could you imagine Peter coming to the front of the stage for the encore signing "Can you tell me where my country lies?" then continuing to sing Carpet Crawlers with Phil as a duet? That would be the perfect end to the last show. I know it's unlikely, but we can dream...
I got a reply back from the Dusk website and they said the book will go back in print 1Q 2022.
Thanks for the review! I have this book on order and should be in my hands before Christmas. I was also looking for the 1967-1975 book but that one has sold out of every site I have checked. Does anyone know when this one will be back in stock?
Can-Utility and the Coastliners - I love the instrumental break in the middle of the song that has so much power to it! It's a preview of what will be coming up on the next album (i.e. The Cinema Show instrumental).
Entangled - This is has to be one of the best acoustic songs Genesis ever wrote! Those harmonizing vocals are some of the best they have done.
Blood On The Rooftops - The acoustic intro is one of the best things Hackett has written with the band! I wish Genesis would have played it live. Glad I got to see Hackett play it with his band.
Deep In The Motherlode - The live Archive 2 version of this song brings it to life! One of those examples of Genesis live being better than the studio version.
Naminanu - I don't know why I love this song, but it's one of my favorite songs that got left off an album.
Just a Job to Do - I love how this song grooves! It could have been a single.
Do The Neurotic - This song shows an edgier side of Genesis. I think it's better than The Brazilian and should have been on the album.
No they played Duchess. And what a great version it was!
I didn't see a thread dedicated to the Cleveland show, so I thought I would create one. I hope that's ok Christian? So who is going to be there? I will be there and am looking forward to what will most likely be my last Genesis show. I have a heavy heart knowing this but am going to enjoy it to the fullest! Cleveland is one of those cities that have supported Genesis since they started touring the States back in 1972/73. Please post your pics and videos in this thread from the Cleveland show. Enjoy it everyone!
I remember the first time hearing the 92 old medley. When they started to play Dance on a Volcano, I just about $hit myself thinking they are going to play the entire song, and then they went directly into TLLDOB after a few verses and I thought, what the heck is this?! Man they sounded great playing DOAV in 92. I just wish they would have played the entire thing. It could have been the highlight of the show!
To say I was heartbroken about the cancellation is an understatement, I flew from the U.S. to see them in London only to find out it was cancelled while I was in the air 😢
If I was you, I would make the most of my time in London. If you have a rental car, I would go visit some Genesis-related places of interest (i.e. The Farm, Charterhouse, etc). Hope you can salvage your time and make it fun!
Neal Morse Band - Do It All Again
I think Do The Neurotic is one of those songs that should have been on an album, even at the expense of The Brazilian, which is my least favorite Genesis instrumental.
Maybe he's feeling pressure having to tour the same time Genesis is touring? His post could be showing some insecurity on his part and he felt the need to lash out in humor, although nobody found it funny. This does nothing for the guy but hurt his image even more. Nad? No Sad...
Final opinion: The first album of the Collins era, take it or leave it ...
What happened to A Trick Of The Tail, Wind & Wuthering, And Then There Were Three, and Duke?! Abacab is actually the fifth album of the Collins era...
