This is an economic package including their third studio album 'Nursery Cryme', released in and their fourth studio album 'Foxtrot', released inon a double vinyl disc. It included two indispensable works from the band that would be a worth purchase, in those days. These are considered two of the best studio works by them.
But, for those who have already both albums, like me, this compilation only can be interesting as an addition for those who are vinyl progressive collector's fans. The line up on both albums is the same. As I've already reviewed these two albums previously on Progarchives, in a more extensive way, I'm not going to do it again.
So, if you are interested to know, in more detail, what I wrote about them before, I invite you to read those my both reviews. However, in here I'm going to write something about them in a more short way.
So, of course, I'm not going to analyze them track by track, as I made before, but I'm only going to make a global appreciation of both albums.
It was frequently played on their live sets. It includes an accredited writing contribution by their former member Anthony Phillips.
It's the first of the two songs from the band to be sung by Collins, in Gabriel's era. It's a bombastic track with theatrical lyrics and with all the things that made of Genesis a so innovative group in the 70's.
It shows Gabriel's great and unique voice and Bank's masterful keyboard work. It has great energy, which collapses into an avalanche of emotions.
It features everything that was great and unique, in 70's, in that Genesis' era. It became the album that solidified their career and reputation as songwriters and performers. It has six tracks. It's about the medieval times, with a catchy tune, a nice piano intro and fairly intense chorus.
It shows Gabriel's amazing vocal versatility and the fantastic skills of Banks on keyboards. It's also their most progressive track. This is a track full of amazing musicianship and lyrics, and is one of the most representatives of the progressive rock music.
It stands as a testament of how unique and creative Genesis was during the early 70's.
Both are two great albums of the band. Still, I really think that 'Nursery Crime' is a transitional album, being better than 'Trespass', but being slightly less good than their three following albums.
By the other hand, 'Foxtrot' is the album that contains one of the songs that people still talk about with a certain reverence and which inspired many other bands to write lengthy suites, even today.
If you have the two studio albums already, you don't need this compilation because it has nothing new to offer, unless, you have a collector's vinyl spirit.
In this case, it will be a great addition to your collection. But, if you don't have these two albums and you own this compilation, it substitutes perfectly well those original albums.
So, I'm going to rate it with 4 stars. Prog is my Ferrari.The Yes Album - Atlantic D (Great / Very Good) Best song: Starship Trooper Peter Banks was a great guitarist, don't get me wrong, but his presence put a cap on Yes' ceiling as a band, and his style of guitar playing, as thick and as satisfying as it was, just wasn't compatible with the direction the band was about to grupobittia.com Yes did the smart thing, and brought in one Steve Howe, who.
