Biography

The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.

Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

Peter Gabriel had left a few years earlier and the fan base had become used to drummer Phil Collins as frontman. No doubt Gabriel was still sorely missed by some, but the new arrangement seemed to be working. After all, "A Trick of the Tail" and "Wind and Wuthering" had both been decent records and the release of "Seconds Out" meant that there was available testimony that the band were still a solid live act, even if the dramatics of Gabriel were now absent. But honestly, could the band seriously continue after the departure of fine guitarist Steve Hackett. Surely not.....

Wrong! "...And Then There Were Three..." is a fantastic record that arguably was never beaten by the 3-man version of Genesis. The flaunted progressive rock traits that had made the band so successful were dying away here, although the roots are still evident. Sure, there are no extensive structures or virtuoso solos, but that orchestral backdrop, those contrasting section, and virtuosity of the group as a whole can still be heard throughout the record (as it can in most, with the possible exception of `Invisible Touch'). In any case, it was probably a wise decision to drop any strong leanings towards progressive rock at this point, as people had grown rather tired of it. Some fans, therefore, would probably accuse them of selling out from this point onwards. Well, lets just say that from this point onwards, they certainly sold!

The album opens with the familiar dramaticism of previous Genesis. High resonating keyboard notes and chords are first heard, creating an image of lights in the distance, before the guitar riff begins towards the back of the mix moving forward, as if this light is coming towards you.

The title refers to the departure of Steve Hackett, and The album generally divides Genesis fans who cannot agree on where the band's journey to popdom begins. I find myself agreeing with Patrick Bateman (the American Psycho), who believed that "Duke" was the real turning point. Obviously, being a psycho he preferred the later stuff. However, it is true that the dickensian whimsy is no more, Mike Rutherford now has to play lead guitar along with bass (he does a passable job), and Tony Banks keyboard sounds seem more suitable for Dr Who incidental music than rock. He also chooses to part company with his Mellotron after this album, although thankfully it does receive a good send-off here and is used extensively.

All of these new Genesis SACD remasters suffer from I-Pod friendly compression, but "then there were three" appears to gotten off reasonably lightly compared to some of the others. In general, it has a much more expansive soundstage, beautiful clarity, and smoother, deeper bass than the definitive edition remaster. I always loved the original gatefold sleeve (even though Storm Thorgerson of hipgnosis who designed it didn't), and would have liked to have a seen a digipack reproduction of it as part of the package too. Never mind.

The album starts off with the suprisingly strident "Down and Out", and Immediately extra detail over the original CD can be heard in the buzzsaw distortion of the guitar, the thumping bass pedals, and Collins' high-hat cutting crisply through the top end. It's a very promising begining.

The drums on "Undertow" sound terrific and are an improvement over the previous CD release again, although I would prefer them higher in the mix.

When this recording came out on LP, I was 13 and was aware of Genesis as a band that older kids liked to listen to.

I heard Follow You Follow Me as a hit single and purchased the follow up, Many Too Many because I just loved the sound of it. At the time, most people in my age group were listening to heavy metal or new wave/punk music and this somehow was somewhere in the middle.

I have had the CD in my collection for ages but haven't really listened to it that much. However, recently, I have been delving into Genesis' earlier work and coming back to this recording makes me realise what a jolt it must have been for die hard Genesis fans. The title is a reflection that it's lead guitarist, Steve Hackett had left the band and that the three remaining members, Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford were going to continue as a trio. Now I happen to think that this was a huge loss to the sound of the group. There was so much creativity and virtuosity in what he did. However, he was frustrated to work within a group. I am reading Mike Rutherford's autobiography at the moment. He wrote that he didn't feel a particularly strong connection with Hakett and felt that the core strength of the band was the three remaining members.

One of Hackett's strengths was that he was happy to play both acoustic and electric instruments and to provide a rich variety of sounds. Here the all guitar sounds are electric and most of the keyboard playing is on synthesisers. In fact, the only song on this album that really harks back to the old Geneis is Many Too Many. I might argue that at this stage, Mike Rutherford was not as interesting a lead guitarist than his erstwhile colleague.

But on the positive side, there are gains.
