  • Jethro42 Oh, and I'm still looking for some similarities between Genesis and GG. I think there are some more. And revisiting The Missing Piece, I find they flirt unsuccessfully with Rock and Roll there too.

  • Jethro42 Interview is pretty great from start to end, but album is perhaps lacking of consistence. The Missing Piece contains few great tracks like Two Weeks in Spain, As Old As You're Young and For Nobody. Both Giant For a Day and Civilian tried too hard to offer a rock and roll album. It still contains few good songs like Thank You, Spookie Boogie and It's Only Goodbye. Civilian has Shadows on the Street, Inside Out and Convenience and couple of nice spots scattered through the album.

  • Jethro42 Yes you're Relight Studios. GG and Genesis in the same time!!! Wow, good observation! Now that some late 70's GG songs come to my mind, I find that a certain amount of them sound like Genesis at some point, as if they crossed the dark age of prog rock at the very same time and similarly. Now that you put me on reflexion, they both started to do some samey songs around (not before) 1976 (Interview / ATOTT). The only thing is that Genesis did flirt with prog (and music) a bit longer.
