I've never listened to any of that Peter Gabriel era Genesis, (or any Genesis really,) what's the good album?


You might be better asking Icepurse or some other prog expert. Personally I wouldn't touch this dated music with a barge-pole. It's leaden, stodgy and about as sexy as a skunk breaking wind.


But everything is dated, from Genesis to the Ramones to Stereolab.

Genesis was a lot more flavorful than Yes, though IMHO, because Gabriel was a lot less about New-age mystical shit, and a lot more conscious of his society. A lot like Stereolab, actually. Hence "Selling England By The Pound".

I would recommend that record to anyone who otherwise finds prog to be absurd. That, and KC's "Larks Tongues In Aspic".

I find most prog to be stilted and noodling, but like most sub-genres, there's always a few rubies in the lard.

Look at Gabriel. He always was on the bleeding edge of music, unlike Jon Anderson, who still flounces around in a poet's shirt and sings about trees.
