|Tormato vs. And then there were three|
78 was pretty much the end of the glory days of prog, with only 3 bands surviving the next decade (those being pink floyd, rush and crimson). EL&P digging their own grave with love beach, make me thought of 2 ambivalent albums that were either consider weak but still a respectable effort or the album that killed their rest of their career. According to the sputnik community which one was better of those 2 albums? yes tormato or genesis and then there were three?
Bad production, and most listeners agrees that at least half of the album is pretty bad which I disagree strongly. Another weak point seems to be the Jon's lyrics which are not as bad as it sounds if we compare it to some ot their peers work (for example rush's territories).
...And Then There Were Three...
Hackett was gone, the band became a threesome. They approached shorter songs but with the complexity of the earlier material, while some says that it was an acceptable album even though it's flaws and their first approach to pop (follow you, follow me), other thinks that genesis died with Steve leaving the band.
|What's wrong with my list dude?|
|"with only 2 bands surviving the next decade (those being pink floyd and crimson)"|
|Yeah sorry LOL|
|also oddly enough both bands had a return to form of sorts in 1980 (Yes with Drama and Genesis with Duke)|
|Marillion were not emerging from the 70s. They are rather the precursors of the Neo-Prog movement, a prog subgenre that has taken roots in the 80s.|
2 is a more pleasant listen than 1. By far.
