The album was a flawless masterpiece that demonstrated some of the best and most perfect song writing, arrangements, production and performance that could be found in the 70's symphonic progressive rock music. So, both albums are essential purchases. The track perfectly captured absolutely every element of classic the Genesis, with lots of passion, theatrical drama, and the variations between beautiful, quiet, melodic parts and much harder and energetic passages with some incredible dynamics. These correspondence will be significant. Their roots go back to 1965 and a pair of rival groups, the Garden Wall and the Anon, formed by students at the Charterhouse School in Godalming, Surrey.
Whether one loves, or hates, this and opinion is certainly still split , nobody could deny not just the success it brought, but the fact that the musicianship was still never less than superb. Of course I'm not going to analyze it track by track, as I did before, but only to do a global appreciation of it. Each release, starting with And Then There Were Three in 1978, and culminating in We Can't Dance in 1991, sold more than the previous work, and each tour saw the band playing to ever larger audiences and stadia. The last two songs have a good melody but the arrangement ruins the result. However, in here I'm going to write something about them in a more short way.
Lamb has some of the best music, some of it's even better than the music on all of the previous albums - but it's so diluted and drawn out that if it were condensed it'd truly give the previous records a true run for their money. Both are two masterpieces that can be joined to 'Selling England By The Pound' and 'The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway', in Gabriel's era. But, for those who have already both albums, like me, this compilation only can be interesting as an addition for those who are vinyl progressive collector's fans. Both albums are two great masterpieces and represent some of the best things the band has ever made. Conclusion: Both albums are two essential progressive rock masterpieces, not only in Genesis' catalogue but also for all progressive rock fans. These are simply two of the best albums ever made in the progressive rock music.
However, in here I'm going to write something about them in a more short way. The two acts coalesced into one, and the students had the novel idea of placing a tape of their music into the hands of Jonathan King whilst he was visiting his alma mater. However, for those like me, who have already both albums, it might be a nice addition for all vinyl prog collectors. It is a fair summary to state that no student of the genre could possibly ignore the history and music of this seminal act. So, I'm going to rate it with 4 stars. The Way We Walk — Volume Two.
I never got that lol. As the title suggests it's the second archive in a series, and this release covers the years 1976-1992 with Phil Collins as the band's lead vocalist. It shows Gabriel's great and unique voice and Bank's masterful keyboard work. This piece is influenced by the 'Prelude Of The First Cello Suite' by J. Banks decided go to the University and studs Physics. So the focus is mostly on material or recordings from the 80s, although the late 70s certainly aren't forgotten either.
The line up on both albums is the same. It has several great points, but some points are clearly made too hasty and idle. However, in here I'm going to write something about them in a more short way. As I've already reviewed these two albums previously on Progarchives, in a more extensive way, I'm not going to do it again. It included two indispensable works from the band that would be a worth purchase, in those days.
In 1996, Collins left to concentrate on his stellar career in music, television, and films. Abacab 1987, Atlantic, 19313-2, W. Conclusion: Both are two great albums of the band. No audio or video content is hosted here. It combines a superb musicianship, dry wit, and creative compositions making of it an essential piece. So, if you are interested to know, in more detail, what I wrote about them before, I invite you to read those my both reviews.
But, despite of that, it all worked superb, and the binding main melody is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful melodies the band ever wrote and the composition stand as one of the progressive rock's ultimate masterpieces ever. Nursery Crime is even better. In 2007, Collins, Rutherford, and Banks, with Thompson and Stuermer back on board live, embarked on a hugely successful reunion tour, without any album to promote. For live duties, Hackett was replaced by who also played bass guitar on the later penned tracks to Rutherford's lead guitar , who had recorded with Jean-Luc Ponty. The brothers Gibb were huge commercially at this time, and King was known to be a huge fan. But, if you don't have these two albums and you own this compilation, it substitutes perfectly well those original albums.
He arranged for the band, with drummer Chris Stewart, to record some sessions in London, where the boys experimented with quite complex, orchestral pastiches. But, if you have already these two individual studio albums, you don't need this compilation because it hasn't anything new to offer. Apparently a few hundred man hours were devoted to the project and it became widely known when it was released—for free—to grateful Genesis fans on the Internet. This is an economic package including their third studio album 'Nursery Cryme', released in 1971 and their fourth studio album 'Foxtrot', released in 1972, on a double vinyl disc. It's the first of the two songs from the band to be sung by Collins, in Gabriel's era. The first three songs are all excellent in their own right. Still, if you want to complete your Genesis collection, maybe you can buy it.
