Team Safeword (Abbbottt), Wednesday, 18 July 2012 03:17 (five years ago) Permalink

"The Last Domino," between which and "The Brazilian" I am wavering between voting. "The Last Domino" is the one that really modified me when I was listening to this a lot, but "The Brazilian" is the one that no one pays attention to but which is amazing. But now that I'm listening to "The Brazilian" I'm finding the drums a little bit fussy and leaning towards "The Last Domino." Will report back.

Title track is the best of the singles on this, by the way. Late-period Genesis was great at straght hits ("That's All", "Invisible Touch") and great at weirdo over-the-top prog-genre exercises ("Domino", "Silver Rainbow") but never combined the two in a satsifying way after "Abacab" (which to be fair is greater than anything of any kind they recorded after it.)

i have a feeling it was my dad's attempt to introduce me to his beloved prog at any early age, but i guess it kinda backfired because it only left me with a lingering obsession with mid 80s pop schlock.

Immense poll. Side one is unfuckwithable, side two isn't sticking except The Brazilian, which is nice. Love Phil's vocals, they're so *urgent*. Has this been hugely compressed, actually? It's far more punchy than these headphones normally allow.

Anyway, I'm going with Tonight, Tonight, Tonight. This album is the most forbidden of fruit for me btw - has never been remotely fashionable, looks horrible, probably politically vile AND was one of the handful of contemporary records my parents owned.

"Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" (album version) vs. "Throwing It All Away." "Land of Confusion" is really good, too. I like the dual epics at the end, but as much as I admire Tony Banks, in the '80s much of his work sounded like a preset demo (see: solo on "Abacab," solo on "Tonightx3," much of "Domino" and "Brazilian."

I love this record. I was talking to a friend about the drums on "Throwing It All Away," just this perfect, immediately-identifiable groove, something that Phil can pull off better than most.

By the way, I find these guys so far from punchable it's silly to even suggest it. No one could say they didn't put in the time and effort and talent. I think they were as amused at their super-stardom as anyone. Just a bunch of upper class - and yes, dull - British dudes and their hammy working class buddy. Who it bears noting took a while to give in to the spotlight and get his smug on.

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 18 July 2012 16:31 (five years ago) Permalink

a while back i made a thread about artists who had a long streak of every album selling more than the last where i just marveled at the fact that these guys had a thirteen-album streak of getting bigger and bigger (6 w/ Gabriel, 7 with Collins), which is kind of unheard of.

Ed Goodgold on dullness (from the Genesis Archive booklet):

I told them that it was my practice to hire detectives to follow all the musicians that I managed while they were on tour and that I had just received the report from the agency. I took an envelope out of my pocket and started reading the report: 'Of the five detectives originally assigned to follow the members of Genesis on their inaugural tour of the States, four have died of boredom. The fifth...the fifth is in a coma.'

I like Tony Banks. He comes across earnest, straightforward, and mostly just interested in talking about the music.

Sounds a bit like Rush. In that (great) doc, the band talks about how on their stint opening for Kiss, the Kiss guys would be going nuts, while the Rush guys would be reading. Kiss could not compute.

For those who have not seen this classic 1972 clip, it's got Tony playing guitar. And Peter playing flute.

Like, 'The Battle of Epping Forest' is far more complex and lengthier than 'Invisible Touch', but one is more successful at what it does than the other and it ain't the former.

The Anti-Climax Blues Band (Turrican), Wednesday, 12 July 2017 16:15 (two months ago) Permalink

Until So and particularly the Sledgehammer video, Gabriel seemed a remote, menacing figure. The dress and fox head read as disturbing (and maybe disturbed) in its day. Phil was never convincing in that mode.

dinnerboat, Wednesday, 12 July 2017 16:26 (two months ago) Permalink

I liked this record fine - had it on cassette when I was perhaps 15. I don't think I liked it as much as Abacab, Face Value, or No Jacket Required (all of which I loved then and still admire).

To be sure, we were aware that there was more pop sheen than classic-rock groinal oomph. Around that time, my friends and I were starting to get into Zeppelin and Floyd and such, so we were shying away from pop radio. But Genesis were grandfathered in, so to speak, and so it was okay to like Invisible Touch. Also So and Graceland, for similar reasons.

I think I saw Throwing it All Away as Follow You Follow Me part 2.

nachismo (Ye Mad Puffin), Wednesday, 12 July 2017 16:33 (two months ago) Permalink

I think the videos to 'In The Air Tonight' and 'Mama' are quite successful in conveying the more menacing side of Phil. On the whole, though, Phil seemed more content to be himself rather than go for a stage persona.

The Anti-Climax Blues Band (Turrican), Wednesday, 12 July 2017 16:36 (two months ago) Permalink

dinnerboat, maybe - to a tweenaged FM audience, Shock the Monkey and Games Without Frontiers did seem a bit offputtingly weird amid the pop of the day. But Gabriel was known to have a cuddly side too, cf. Solsbury Hill and Biko.

Did I Have the Touch chart? I only heard it later.

As for "classic-rock groinal oomph", even in the Gabriel-era they were hardly the hardest rocking band around. Sure, they could do it, but I wish they'd done it more.

The Anti-Climax Blues Band (Turrican), Wednesday, 12 July 2017 16:40 (two months ago) Permalink

Right, Turrican, I wasn't speaking of comparing them to their prior selves, but rather to other 1970s acts still active at that time. Petty, the Who.

xp Gabriel toured with death's head makeup (cf the first live album cover), then with a shaved his head at a time when skinheads were a thing. I think he liked scaring his audience early on, though it seems he came to see it as an insincere pose that So was meant to correct. Also, smh if Biko is your cuddly side.

dinnerboat, Wednesday, 12 July 2017 16:51 (two months ago) Permalink

...Oh and Springsteen too (re: bringing the groinal oomph).

DC had a classic rock station around this time that captured a lot of teenaged boys' ears, even if it was actually aimed at their older brothers or cool uncles (or even, gasp, their DADS). One could groove on Bad Company or Yes or whatever, and feel superior to those lame-os who were still stuck to the pop station with its Debbie Gibson and Menudo. Anyway they made a great show of bringing out "the latest from..." to show that those hoary old classic rock doodz could still Bring It.

The youngsters will never know how dynamically different 1984 seemed from 1987, and 1986 from 1990. But these differneces smooth out in retrospect.

nachismo (Ye Mad Puffin), Wednesday, 12 July 2017 16:55 (two months ago) Permalink

difference between 1984 and 1987 was absolutely massive especially in terms of the tone colors and rhythms which dominated the charts, i would think it's still pretty obvious today to a youngster with a sharp ear

OK, i just re-listened to the album for the first time in about 25 years (this was probably my favorite album in 1987, btw):
- ok, fine: it holds up surprisingly well. i'll have to go dig out my tour shirt.
- agreed on "Throwing It All Away" being their best single
- why not more love for The Brazilian? I remember that being a highlight of their live show around this time.

Re: gravitas: Gabriel was creepy even in a giant flower costume. Phil Collins defaulted to hammy, which probably helped widen their audience, but not necessarily their credibility as serious musicians.

In Too Deep is heavily featured in Neil Jordan's excellent Mona Lisa. it depicts a truly bloody vile depths-of-the-Thatcher-era London and the use of the song is pretty much the only respite from the gloom and the horror.

That's right! Wasn't the film releaesed in the UK in late spring '86? That would've made "In Too Deep" the first exposed track.

What makes this record an incredible achievement is that is not just superior to everything else that Genesis put out from 1981 onwards, but in terms of quality and songwriting it knocks Phil Collins' solo work into a cocked hat, too. It's a real diamond in the rough.

The Anti-Climax Blues Band (Turrican), Sunday, 16 July 2017 11:51 (two months ago) Permalink

IT is so blatantly commercial -- bully for them -- making a record with sales up the wazoo, videos on constant MTV rotation, entering the cultural confab; none too bad for some old white prog guys. The band changed their trajectory in a radical fashion even if this was the direction they were already heading. All these tracks sound far more dated than those from albums a decade earlier.

bodacious ignoramus, Sunday, 16 July 2017 14:39 (two months ago) Permalink

It took them years to write a perfect pop song. Their first attempt was 'I Know What I Like', and they got close with 'Follow You Follow Me', 'Turn It On Again' and 'That's All' ... but this album is where they finally nailed it, particularly on the title track, and they did it while keeping their inherent progginess intact. It was still prog in places, just a different kind of prog.

I agree that the album sounds like it was released in 1986, but that's to be expected given that it was. Dated is not a pejorative.

The Anti-Climax Blues Band (Turrican), Sunday, 16 July 2017 15:58 (two months ago) Permalink

Duke does not sound like it was made in 1980, nor does Trespass sound like 1970 -- IT was of it's time; fine hits, but in the end, derivative. Take your classic rock-whatever, Moving Pictures, Women and Children First, Tres Hombres... as fresh today as ever. IT is in a box, and, a small one; especially when compared to the rest of their catalog. Why do so many equate an album's quality with the number of hits it has? ....a foolhardy pursuit.

bodacious ignoramus, Sunday, 16 July 2017 16:29 (two months ago) Permalink

Those albums also sound like they were released in the year in which they were released.

I disagree that Invisible Touch is derivative, particularly since the average pop artist of 1986 wasn't putting out tracks like 'Domino' or the full version of 'Tonight, Tonight, Tonight' ...

You seem to be under the impression that writing pop hits is an easy thing to do. It isn't.

The Anti-Climax Blues Band (Turrican), Sunday, 16 July 2017 16:48 (two months ago) Permalink

pop hits are mostly either by design or by chance; in this case, having a pop-derived disposition lessened the impact of a once powerful group of uncompromising artisans -- starting to chase tails here, but Peter also went down the same rabbit-hole with Sledgehammer, et al (but could Collins have ever even conceived of anything as brilliant as the Passion OMPS? Apples and Oranges, Turd.

I'd say that as a pop song, 'Invisible Touch' has a lot of impact - as a tune, it's truly uplifting and joyous and the lyric is a theme that anyone over a certain age can relate to. The album as a whole certainly had enough "impact" to speak to a great number of people. Seems to me that you're irked that 10 minute epics about dungeons and dragons weren't speaking to a great number of people in 1986, including the band themselves. The bands melodic sense and desire to do something different remained intact, even if it didn't always work - see: the two LP's prior to Invisible Touch.

I've mentioned before that I don't reall like Phil's solo stuff, so I don't see what that has to do with anything, as well as Gabriel vs. Collins talk when Banks and Rutherford were the ones running the show.

Well I've been waiting, waiting here so long
But thinking nothing, nothing could go wrong, but now I know
She has a built in ability
To take everything she sees
And now it seems I'm falling, falling for her.

I don't really know her, I only know her name
But she crawls under your skin, you're never quite the same, and now I know
She's got something you just can't trust
It's something mysterious
And now it seems I'm falling, falling for her.

She don't like losing, to her it's still a game
Though she'll mess up your life, you'll want her just the same, now I know
She has a built in ability
To take everything she sees
And now it seems I've fallen, fallen for her.

She seems to have an invisible touch yeah
She reaches in, grabs right hold of your heart
She seems to have an invisible touch yeah
It takes control and slowly tears you apart.

Rinse and repeat.

...i'm beside myself with the lyrical depth --- the two albums previous to IT have tracks are that are far more inventive than anything on IT... dungeons and dragons notwithstanding.

As I've said, 'Invisible Touch' has a lyrical theme that pretty much anyone over a certain age can relate to. If you can't, then fair enough, but I guess that says a lot. If you're relying on wacky stories about hypersexual Victorian ghosts, the human race being turned into a bunch of short-arses, or a bird stealing some guys dick to make you feel like the deep intellectual you think you are, but aren't, then also fair enough.
