11 points. It's an interesting transformation of this song. Time signatures obviously changed. I also like Paul's voice on that one. This is of course not Prog, bit it's a decent pop song. Nothing wrong with that.
Not sure about that. The FFFT was never intended to be a tour to support or promote Testify (or Brother Bear).
But I agree - a new album would be great.
We should actualy be grateful that all other guys are still around and recording / touring more or less frequently. One day that'll all be gone
So, Brand X were on that Cruise as well. I hope they will tour Europe one day. Looks like they put on a great show.
Thanks to Niklas - was fun reading it!
No matter what we think about this tour - it seems like the majority is really enjoying it. This tour seems to be going on forever. I wonder if there's a chance for a new album ...
Thanks for the service! And yes, great idea to include some piece of Genesis-history in the artwork
Oh dear ...
I nearly fogot how insane this discussion was at times. Thanks for compiling and bringing this feature to our attention. Weird stuff, but a great read.
I acatully hope it won't happen. But something tells me it might not be that unrealistic any more - at least the "small" version with Tony, Mike and Phil ... and Nic
I think the tracks are likeable enough; they're just not spectacular.
That's a good summary of the thread
It's actually the problem of the album. It feels a bit lost but several tracks are really good. Over the years I learned to like "Undertow" and dislike "Scenes From A Night's Dream".
And yes, "Snowbound" has always been a favorite of mine.
I am sure it was an important album for the band - they needed to prove it works without Steve and they have moved forward in terms of songwriting and sound. They lost a bit of their strength, which was always a great atmosphere thoughout the albums. They eventually got that back later.
A nice and funny track from the early days. I like the lyrics and the kind-of-childish atmosphere.
"like a fool in the pool ..."
Few more countries this year, but still nothing in the UK / Ireland or any major tour outside Germany and Poland. Will that happen someday?
So, 5,000 copies. Seems to me that's quite a lot? But it's a Picture Disc, so at the end of the day I am grateful there will be a digital version as well!
Curious what Phil will play down under. Do you expect setlist changes? I remember there was a rule that oversea artists had to include Australian artists in their live band? is that still the case?
Thanks for posting, a nice article. Can't believe that man is 50 already.
Just found this thread.
Apparently I used to listen to live recordings much more in the past. I don't call them bootlegs, because I never had a passion for CD-pressings in that manner. I got plenty of them somewhere, most of them soundboard recordings or radio broadcasts. Don't listen to them much these days.
Maybe the Board Tapes project can change that - but that is obviuously not realistic to expect.
Happy New Year!
Did some of you join the Collins / In The Air Tonight countdown?
When there's time I like to listen to an album in its entirety, Problem is: We Can't Dance or The Lamb are very long, so that applies most to Trick or Nursery Cryme.
He probably records a lot of stuff for his library music, material he is contracted to produce - some of it is accepted, not all of it, and that probably leaves him with a lot of recorded material that he can either refurbish or release at a later date.
I also think that's a good explanation. I am on the one hand fascinated by the load of material he produces, but on the other hand - wouldn't it be nice to hear a proper rock / prog album by Ant again?
Saw them as well during their European tour and I must admit I wasn't too sure about the new concept.
But it worked. I already came across that review a few days ago. I may not be as enthusiastic as the reviewer, but whoever is thinking about going - do it!
It's certainly worth the experience!
I was really blown away by the first part, while the second one did leave me a bit cold. Third part was safer ground then, althugh it contained some surprises as well.
That's a tough one!

but it could be different next week. It's also looks quite strange to see Shapes or Abacab more towards the bottom of my list - but hey, I think they didn't make really bad albums, so it's okay.
That's an outstanding track. It's a shame Phil didn't play that more often during later tours. I came across this on a bootleg recording quite some years ago. Took me some time to figure out it was a Brand X track. Full score!
