Album Review

And Then There Were Three, more than either of its immediate predecessors, feels like the beginning of the second phase of Genesis — in large part because the lineup had indeed dwindled down to Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, and Phil Collins, a situation alluded to in the title. But it wasn't just a whittling of the lineup; the group's aesthetic was also shifting, moving away from the fantastical, literary landscapes that marked both the early Genesis LPs and the two transitional post-Gabriel outings, as the bandmembers turned their lyrical references to contemporary concerns and slowly worked pop into the mix, as heard on the closing "Follow You Follow Me," the band's first genuine pop hit. Its calm, insistent melody, layered with harmonies, is a perfect soft rock hook, although there's a glassy, almost eerie quality to the production that is also heard throughout the rest of the record. These chilly surfaces are an indication that Genesis don't quite want to abandon prog at this point, but the increasing emphasis on melody and tight song structures points the way toward the group's '80s work.

My Favorite Genesis Album, BUT. . .

"And Then There Were Three" shows off Genesis at their concentrated best. The composing, arranging and performing on these songs is simply incredible, and this long-awaited remastering is definitely an improvement (sorry, all you vinyl worshippers!). Phil Collins shows off the chops that gave him his reputation as one of the best rock drummers ever, along with covering ALL the many-layered vocals; Tony Banks stretches his talents to actually include something other than finger exercises in his soloing; and Mike Rutherford proves he can wail on the guitar as well as bass. Every track is a singular masterpiece, but especially check out "Down And Out", "Undertow", "Burning Rope", "Deep In The Motherlode", and "The Lady Lies"... which, arguably I guess, should be where the album ends. Truth be told, I could have lived a perfectly happy and satisfying life if "Follow You Follow Me" had never existed; it is something of a preview of what happened next... ah well, in a perfect world we'd all die of boredom. Along with "A Trick Of The Tail" and "Wind And Wuthering", "ATTWT" completes the perfect triad of Genesis; after this it was all downhill, not that there weren't some nice views on the way down, and "Fading Lights" was an exquisite ending to a long, long journey (alas, if only they'd left it at that!), but in my reckoning this album marks the absolute pinnacle of Genesis... come on, admit it, "Duke" wasn't really THAT good... and now for the BUT: somebody at iTunes please tell me WHERE IS "SECONDS OUT"??????? It's the second best (after "Yessongs") live rock album ever recorded and on it is the definitive performance of "Supper's Ready" ("desert island" music if ever there were such a thing!) and it is nowhere to be found here!?!?!?! What's going on? I can only hope it's because someone is working on a brand new super-special expanded edition containing the complete show from that tour, or something equally astonishing. . . I hope somebody reads this. . .

One of the best post- Peter Gabriel Albums!

This third album post Peter Gabriel is still one of the best examples of Genesis doing melodic, intricate progressive rock with scope and graduer. Down and Out starts off a sweep of seven strong songs and things don't lighten up until Scenes from a Night's Dream. Deep in the Motherlode in theme and sound hints at Driving the Last Spike written about a decade later. All in all, a strong, strong effort despite the departure of Steve Hackett. Far from my favorite track, but the song that started mass popular appeal for Genesis, the album finishes with Follow You Follow Me. However, I can't complain about Follow You Follow Me too much; it got my wife intrested in Genesis!

Three is better than NOTHING!!

This album is glorious and is among their most under-rated stuff. It opens with the insanity of "Down and Out" and then mellows out slightly with "Undertow." "Ballad of Big" and "Snowbound" continue in typical 70's Genesis fasion. "Burning Rope" serves as a wonderful warm up to the intense "Deep in the Motherlode," which is easily the best song on the album. The album continues with the ballad "Many, Too Many," "Scenes From a Night's Dream," which sounds like it was a Wind and Wuthering out-take, yet another ballad "Say It's Alright Joe" and the jazzy/funky "The Lady Lies" before finishing with the band's first widely successful single "Follow You, Follw Me." After listening to this album, you'll get why it was O.K. for the band to continue on as a trio instead of quitting.
