Is it just me, or are Genesis really dull?

Well?

Are Genesis a 'present tense' thing?

When I cast my mind back to the times of their pomp, they absolutely were for dull bastards with the odd A level and a place on an uninteresting vocational degree course.

tasselhoff - 12 May 2019 21:37:54 (#2 of 70)

So what does an intellectual colossus such as yourself listen to?

Genesis are dull, but your reply reeks

FGBFGB - 12 May 2019 21:38:02 (#3 of 70)

A bit snooty, perhaps?

Shadrack22 - 12 May 2019 21:38:51 (#4 of 70)

Are we talking Peter Gabriel era or afterwards?

robbie76 - 12 May 2019 21:42:11 (#5 of 70)

They had some good material, some of it awesome . Of it’s time if you’re old now, maybe. Afterglow is immense, for me.

Genesis is dull. All those "begats" make my eyes glaze over.

kvelertak - 12 May 2019 21:44:45 (#7 of 70)

I find their material grating, much prefer King Crimson.

Shadrack22 - 12 May 2019 21:45:18 (#8 of 70)

I prefer Van der Graaf Generator.

Dementor - 12 May 2019 21:49:11 (#9 of 70)

"Follow you, follow me" is nice.

frantastic - 12 May 2019 21:50:00 (#10 of 70)

Of all the dull pop groups in the world why pick Genesis? It (they?) had a good few years in the seventies, that's about it.

carterbrandon - 12 May 2019 21:50:11 (#11 of 70)

#2: If you didn't like that, you probably don't want to start me on Yes and their fans.

crackfox - 12 May 2019 21:50:38 (#12 of 70)

I listened to Trick of the Tail start to finish the other week and thoroughly enjoyed it - but everything they did thereafter was horse shit

darkhorse - 12 May 2019 21:53:34 (#13 of 70)

I loaded up Lamb on my MP3 player only a month or so back, wallowing in nostalgia for when I had a cassette (long lost) in my walkman around the time of A-level mocks.

If you don't know what "Lamb" refers to, you ain't prog enough.

FleurDuMal - 12 May 2019 21:54:46 (#14 of 70)

carter, Yes are probably the one band who are way worse than Genesis.

Shadrack22 - 12 May 2019 21:55:34 (#15 of 70)

What about Procul Harum?

Dementor - 12 May 2019 21:56:00 (#16 of 70)

It (they?) had a good few years in the seventies, that's about it.

Like Queen, before the synths ruined them.

SinnerBoy - 12 May 2019 21:56:16 (#17 of 70)

Dull? Not at all!





They aspire to dullness.

FleurDuMal - 12 May 2019 21:56:34 (#18 of 70)

Procul Harum are OK.

tasselhoff - 12 May 2019 21:58:07 (#19 of 70)

Yes were shite and I obviously wasn't taking the right drugs to appreciate them.

kvelertak - 12 May 2019 21:58:12 (#20 of 70)

The first album by Yes is listenable. Not enough flying teapots though.
