For me it’s one of the best tracks they have done as a trio. It probably is a bit too much soundwise, i.e. period piece, hence only 14 points
I listened to a lot of Genesis stuff the other day and one question appeared. How many different kind of song structures did they produce? Obviously, some pop songs all have more or less the same structure. But there are also some long songs, das follow the same pattern:
song part / instrumental / song part reprise:
Firth Of Fifth
Mad Man Moon
One For The Vine
Home By The Sea / Second Home By The Sea
There Must Be Some Other Way
Vocals all over, but more or less two song parts
Driving The Last Spike
One Man's Fool
starting with song part, ending with instrumental
The Cinema Show
do you find more categories, or more songs that fit in one of these categories?
About time ... I still don't understand why Mike didn't join Phil on stage back in 2004.
Nice to see how they seem to enjoy it!
My favorite album is "Beggar"
I also like "Rewired" - there are a couple of interesting tunes on that one, like "Falling" or "How Can I"
Then "Let Me Fly", cause I think they really had a lot of good quality tunes on this one.
"High Life" is my favorite, then "The Letter".
Third option was tough - in the end I picked "The Best Is Yet To Come".
"Wonder", "I'll Be There For You" and the title track would follow
Well, maybe I should give this one a second chance? Problem often is: How to access it in the right way. Any suggestions?
I will just mention that we got third row seats for this. Mike (hubby) thinks meet & greet is too expensive. I wonder why we had to book just under a year in advance? Seems far too excessive for me but there you are.
That happens quite often actually. I remember tickets for Collins in London 97 being available in Nov 96.
I really like this track! Out of the three new ones, it's surely the best. I gave 13 points.
Looks quite similar to A Chord Too Far, regarding the new mixes. Was Throwback also a new mix on ACTF?
Besides that, it surely will be a nice package. Whether you need that or not (the content is more or less well known) is subject to your own choice .... Nice that all albums are now available again anyway. Especially for new fans.
To be honest Christian, not a huge fan of Mike's solo work. Too poppy with lots of song driven music. Not my taste at all.... Though there are a few tracks that are not too bad..
I didn't like the album when it came out, so I basically agree. But certain songs are quite nice, such as All the light I need or My little island. But as a whole, it was a step back after the superb Beggar album.
I have always wondered if there really was a real Tony Banks solo album besides Fugitive. I tend to see the other albums as projects with different people (with the classical music albums being the exception, his is a completely different world).
I quite like Still, but what would Still be without Kershaw and Fish?
I like the photos a lot! Saw some interview footage of that day which was kind of horrible, but in Vienna he seemed to be okay!
I don't think that's going to happen.
1. looks like they are shutting down themusic.com ...????
2. why should he release complete tours to compensate waiting time for a new studio album?
and, after all, what's the benefit for us? I enjoy stuff like Rated PG far more than live recordings.
yeah, you are right.
But I was really wondering what you meant with "unforgivable"
Did anyone see them recently in North America / West Coast?
Tony Levin's projects are quite a big task to dive into. I recommend his work with King Crimson and his Stick Men stuff.
We can only assume how complicated that is. There must be tons of tapes and stuff. Even in case everything is marked properly, it's still quite a job to see things through, I am sure.
Thanks for this insight!
Actually, I find Slow Dance a little boring, it could have been done with more ambition. I think I read somewhere that Ant wanted to rerecord it with a full orchestra? Any news about this plan?
I bet there will be a physical release at some point. So I wait ...
