From Grouse
The Peter Gabriel era Genesis is probably the best progressive rock band. It's sad that they later became the horrible pop band that the general public knows them as.

Genius band, genius concepts, genius live, both era's, big fan, prefer Gabriel/Hackett era, but Mama is a genius album regardless, as are there many singles from the latter era

I'm really sad because I don't really get The Lamb album. And I've tried. Great band all in all, if you count only Peter Gabriel things. Genesis is only Genesis with Gabriel, sorry!

From Matt-R
I'm with most of the fans, the Gabriel era is better, (Foxtrot is definitely their best album), but the Collins era had its great albums/songs. The two with Steve Hackett were a good light version of prog rock, and ABACAB and the self titled album are good, but most are just mediocre pop to me.

Great band, but the 2007 remasters of their work are just terrible.
