    Hey people,

    I've been wondering if anyone here likes (or is a big fan like me) Genesis.

    It's one of my favs band ever (thank you dad for giving me this passion !). I really like metal and stuff but I always find time (everyday !) to listen to them.

    not that when I talk about Genesis, I only talk about the period 1967-1977 until Steve Hackett left the band. (Can't even think about utter crap like 'Jesus he knows me').

    So if anyone here wants to share their music, talk about the band and stuff, we could do it here (I haven't found a thread about them so...)

    I'd like to share with you my favorites songs:
    The cinema show - TOP 1
    Genesis - The Cinema Show - YouTube

    One for the vine - TOP 2
    Genesis - One for the Vine - YouTube

    Robbery Assault and Battery - TOP 3
    Genesis - Robbery, Assault and Battery - YouTube

    I also really like 'los endos' and 'Eleventh earl of mar' and 'Blood on the rooftops' (as my top 4,5,6)

    If anyone's interested, i've also seen 'The musical box' the official cover band of Genesis (with the costumes and stuff) 4 times and they're great (except last time !)

    Your turn now !

    This is the only thing I can think of when someone mentions Genesis:

    I like a lot of neo-prog, which is a genre of music that owes a lot to Genesis. The Cinema Show is probably my favourite track of theirs too. I've often gone into a music store and tried to buy some of the early Genesis albums, but there is usually only "best of" cds that focus more on their pop era. I've got a Steve Hackett dvd too - really talented player.

    considering i love old 70s prog rock music, cygnus x-1/2 being one of my favorite songs ever and rush overall being one of my top bands, i find it odd that i just can't get into genesis. that may be partly due to the fact that i haven't really sat down and given them a good listen to, at which point i may love them, but right now they don't tickle my fancy the way i feel that they should. odd.

    Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is an awesome album, and Peter Gabriel is a genius \m/

    I love Trespass through Fox Trot. I find Selling England a bit shaky, and have a hard time getting in to Lamb. Anything after that, I can't even listen to.

    Everyone's got their opinion, personally I can't listen to anything after Wind and wuthering.

    I grew up listening to Second's out (their live album). (the first album of them i've ever listened to).
    All the songs in this album have always been in my playlist 'genesis' on itunes !

    I love Peter Gabriel, and I also love Phil Collins, but I think I prefer the PC era of genesis more than the earlier stuff. ...And then there were 3 is probably my favorite genesis album

    very influential, as someone above posted I'm probably more into bands they've influenced than Genesis themselves. Did love the Squackett album though and am very tempted to go see Steve Hackett when he plays here next October...

    Genesis from the first album all the way up through A Trick of the Tail and Wind and Wuthering are arguably the most significant band to Progressive Rock. I will take Gabriel-era Genesis over ELP, Yes, and even as much as it pains me to say this, Crimson, any day of the week.
