The first three tracks. I would say this is my least favourite PG album.
Red Day, Another Murder, Water Out Of Wine
The Domino theorists....
You can stop laughing now.
Very hard. Red Rain, Sledgehammer & In Your Eyes, but Don't Give Up & That Voice again are superb.
As a Liverpool fan, I am very happy for Chelsea. Also very happy that Brentford (Phil's local team) are now in the Premier League.
I'm not making love to anyone's wishes
Only for that light I see
'Cause when I'm dead and lowered low in my grave
That's gonna be the only thing that's left of me…
Love that. Saw him a few years ago & he was brilliant.
Its funny, as a kid in the ‘80s, a lot of us didn’t even realize that Peter had this whole other chapter to his musical career. He was just this guy that did really cool and weird music videos.
Well that's how I started, it must be said. It took me decades to even hear his Genesis work even after the one & only time I saw him live (1994).
Well, now that the Republican senators have blocked the investigation into the January 6 insurrection, IMO they have committed treason. If a foreign country had invaded our Capitol building they would have definitely voted to investigate. What a bunch of chicken shit cowards. Not one of them deserves to be a representative of the U.S. government. It's obvious to me that they are all self serving pieces of crap.
Not just a foreign country. If Antifa or BLM had done it... ironic, given that some of them seem to think the rioters WERE Antifa & BLM & not their own precious supporters.
I love Steam, it’s one of my favorite Peter Gabriel tracks. Guilty pleasure and all.
I also love Steam but It's just a bit too similar to the mighty Sledgehammer. As for Kiss That Frog I don't think it's meant to be taken that seriously.
Fleetwood Mac & REM have the worst album covers by any artist in my view.
I suppose my favourite album cover is Sgt Pepper, and all the Beatles album covers.
Blood Of Eden
Digging In The Dirt
haha. I like to imagine that he is probably actually very funny. People with a dry sense of humor are sometimes some of the funniest people. I love on Sum of the Parts when Phil is talking about the squabbles the band would have and he said he would be like “did I miss something?” The camera pans wide and you can see Tony cracking up, it’s great.
Watch his Prog God speech.
Thank you FeelItComing. A huge congratulations to OneTimeUserHarry. for winning this competition....
Wow! Oops! Congratulations OneTimeUserHarry.... I don't know what I was looking at yesterday that made me think Noni won...this sums up Liverpool's season.
Well done Noni!
My pet hate is whenever there is about to be a press conference by the Prime Minister the ABC (the equivalent of the BBC) will show live pictures of a podium with nobody standing at it, for minutes at a time, because apparently it is too difficult to just cut to the start of the press conference.
hmmm..maybe I’ll try giving Yes a listen, the only song of theirs I know is Owner of a Lonely Heart....
I have felt for years that I needed to discover Yes. I now have a Best Of CD called Highlights which includes tracks like Roundabout & I've Seen All Good People. Slowly but surely.
Here they are doing Roundabout at their Hall of Fame induction with Geddy Lee.
I'd never seen that, it's hysterical. Her increasing desperation to hang on to the hat just adds to it. I'm now imagining a report with her in a hurricane, clinging to a lamp post, her torso and legs blown horizontal, cars and bins flying past, yelling "This storm is all about the wind".
News coverage now measures its own value by amount of time devoted, and having reporters at the scene, both regardless of whether anything is actually happening. A story breaks and if it concerns an organisation or a person, the reporters have to be seen outside the company's building or the person's house. They think this is adding something and somehow making their coverage more effective and incisive, but of course it isn't - it's utterly lazy, superficial thinking.
Typical feature: anchor in studio - "For the latest on this supposed story where nothing's actually happened, over to Sycamore Bleeg, our Special Correspondent who's there now - Sycamore, what's the latest?"
(Sycamore, outside some building or other, stands looking fixedly at us and nodding silently for about 10 seconds). "Well Cadenza, the latest is that there are no new developments, but maybe that won't seem so unimpressive if I say it in this urgent sort of tone, so I'm going to maintain it for the rest of this redundant report, while occasionally putting in pointless emphasis and... slowing.... down... leaving... bizarre.... gaps.... while making chopping motions in the air... in the hope dumb viewers will think they've just heard something important. My voice is now going to dramatically go down in tone as I near the end... before springing back in a meaningless interrogative way, as if to suggest something might happen. Back to you in the studio".
Then Cadenza tells us she has the Chief Nothing Editor with her in the studio, and indeed she does, turning to him to ask him to rake back over the nothingness we've just heard, which he does so using the same words slightly re-arranged.
Put that together with Charlie Brooker's all-purpose feature above, and there you have news coverage as it is now.
And don't swim in the sea!!!
It should be mandatory for every reporter out in extreme weather to shout very loudly: 'Lord! Here comes the flood'.

Hello, everyone! First post here. I am guessing they will open with a recognizable hit to hook everyone from the start. From there, I hope they feel free to move on to whatever. How about Illegal Alien, or a reworked Congo? Background info: I first became Genesis-aware in the early 80s, probably when abacab was new. Did not become a crazy fan until the early 90s, about the time of the first remasters. Can’t remember exactly what my first complete albums were, but fairly certain I started with Trick, Selling, and W&W.
I am one of the people who likes Illegal Alien. However in the current climate, it would be inappropriate to say the least. If I had my way, if not TIOA, they would start with Abacab or Dodo/Lurker.
