Quote: Now, regarding this thread, Peter Gabriel is good, but c'mon! - the best piece of music ever....... by Genesis???? LMAO

One must have been drinking too much ale, to have come to this conclusion


peter Gabriel had already left the band. it was an instrumental for the last 2 minutes of the song. take 2 minutes out of your life and give it a listen. Steve hackett guitar and tony banks Amaaazzzing keyboards. people have the wrong impression about Genesis and are pleasantly surprised by what they hear, especially from the 70s

Bought the album when it first came out. The first full Collins outing had its moments, otherwise I subsequently grew to hate his thin screachy tones. The sleeve artwork is very memorable. Hackett has an original style, but is no Allan Holdsworth.

Are we talking music generally or just rock/pop (which is sadly all a lot of people seem to think the word 'music' covers these days)?

If the former, it has to be Beethoven's Eroica symphony - for a whole load of reasons.

Hi Paul,
just had a list to the whole track(to give context to the last 2 minutes) to remind myself of whether I'd missed something, but I hadn't - it just doesn't rock my boat. 2 minutes wasted Wink

Maybe I'm thinking of music in a broader sense, as Joolsb mentions.

I like 70's music as I grew up during this period, and some bands/tracks from that period are very special to me, but I dont consider any of it as the best piece of music ever written, although Bowie would be the one who came close.

Let's explore the bigger picture Smile

Andrew, ive always found that the music that stays with you forever, takes a while to grow on you. 1 listen isnt enough. music that you like instantly, you will dislike just as quick.

My response mentions the word 'remind', meaning I've heard it before, and todays listen did nothing to change my opinion.
However, I do agree that some music takes longer to appreciate than other music which has more initial impact, which is something I love about LP's -
there's tracks that sound great when you first get it home, then there's other tracks will dont hit the mark initially, but get better with time.

Damn right Adrian - Grace has a superb and unique voice, which inspired Siouxsie Sioux amongst others.
I prefer the 'Airplane' era.
