Hello people, quite a long post below, but I hope it can be useful to discuss an interesting experience on listening to Genesis.
I have been rediscovering their music with a new vision (or better saying, new "listening habits!") since I was aware that this official Australian vinyl box-set of theirs was once released in 1986:
It is of course out of print, and I never bought this box. It is an official release that collects all studio albums from Trespass until Duke.
But, what's so interesting, in my view, about it?
Well, firstly, the fact that it features all albums from Trespass until Duke (which is my favorite era of Genesis, their most "proggy" years, and it is my overall favorite sequence of albums ever), but also the fact that I always wished a release that unified all those amazing albums - It is interesting to note that, through this framework, one can see each album as a suite, part of a bigger "work" unifying those albums, which would be the box-set itself.
So, my idea here is the following: Since there's this official vinyl box-set , that spans all studio albums from Trespass until Duke, I suggest to listen that sequence of studio albums as a "big 8h12min album".
Of course it is impossible to listen to 8+ hours of music without stops, so I usually start at the beginning of the day, and listen through it, during work when I can put phones, and also during other activities, and pause when necessary, continuing soon after.
I really felt this musical experience to be really interesting, and in this particular case of those amazing Genesis albums, is very rewarding to me!
Here's my spotify playlist spanning the 9 albums as the box-set:
