I tried to get Genesis. Picked up Foxtrot, Selling England and Trick of the Tail. Didn't happen. I hear Hackett is pretty good but I don't hear much
guitar on those albums. I talked to a total prog-rock guy the other day and he said Genesis was all about the technicality, I said "WHAT
technicality, where's the freakin' guitar?". Trick wasn't so bad(Squonk is ok, really dig Spock's Beard's cover of it) but still didn't get me
into Genesis. Some really dark lyrics on that one.
He didn't really have a answer for me.
Someday I'll get some Camel(among a hundred or so other prog groups, then and today I'd like to check out) as I can only do it with albums, not
single songs. I'm old school that way. Gotta listen to a whole disc.
