The first post Hackett release from Banks, Collins & Rutherford has always found a place in my heart, but I have never been able to explain exactly why.
A move to shorter songs & away from the traditional prog material of the past this album in a way carries on the dark themes expressed in Wind & Wuthering. The change to 5 mins a piece from 8-10 means that the music has less time to develop & in parts this gives ATTWT a somewhat hurried feel. It's as though the guys are still trying to write longer songs but have less time in which to play them.
The absence of Steve Hackett means Mike Rutherford has to take on guitar duties as well as bass & his (albeit hardly colossal) shortcomings as an 'axeman' do show up from time to time.
There are a couple of (imo) less than adequate tracks on here. Ballad of Big gives us a first indication of Phil's love of the wild west, & it ain't so rootin'/tootin'. Scenes From a Nights Dream is frankly just plain awful & is a 'skip' track every time. But having dealt with the not so good there are some cracking songs on here; Down & Out really gets going after a deeply melodic intro & is one of the heaviest things they ever did. Undertow is a heart wrenching ballad of love & loss, in the style of Afterglow & should go down as one of Tony's best ever songs. Snowbound should be a stinker but turns out to be a lovely song of innocence & desire in a winter setting. Deep in the Motherlode is Mike's turn to play cowboy as a young prospector heads west to seek his fortune in the gold fields of 19th century California, a rollocking good tune it is to.

The title of this 1978 album refers to the departure of guitarist Steve Hackett from Genesis the year prior to its release; Hackett was not replaced, and the remaining members decided to continue as a three-piece: Collins, Banks & Rutherford.

ATTWT is an OK album with some good `stadium rock' numbers, but lacks the subtlety and complexity of earlier Genesis music. Prog had gone out of fashion in the New Wave punk-rock era, and the band started to re-invent themselves. Nothing wrong with that, you may say; but the result is not prog and not exactly pop but a between-two-stools product pointing the way to a more mainstream verse-chorus music designed to attract a new audience. `Follow you follow me' was the band's first commercially successful pop single which delivered a new generation of fans who neither listened to nor cared about the earlier Genesis prog-rock legacy.

`Three' is what it is: a good album in its own terms with some fine songs and great hooks, but no more. If you like Genesis music post-`Duke' & `Abacab' then you'll probably like it. If however you're a diehard fan of the long musical pieces typical of Gabriel-era Genesis with complex time-signature changes and quirky English-eccentric storytelling, well, in that case you may not warm to it so much.

For any band that has had more then one lead vocalist, there will always be a debate over which lead they prefer. Some will say Peter Gabriel, and some who will go for Phil Collins. With this 1978 album, And Then There Were Three, not only does it provide an excellent to Collins-led Genesis, it also provides some proof that this kind of Genesis still had an element of prog-rock amongst some of its latter, and more commercial rock, offerings (We Can't Dance, Invisible Touch).
From 'Down and Out' to its popular single Follow You Follow Me, the albums feels more of a journey from one track to another, rather then just a bunch of songs crammed into an album. Fans of some of their music from the 1980s and 1990s may have to forgive some of the dated music production, which reflect this era of rock music, particular those that rely on the synthesisers, such as 'Ballad of Big'. But most of the tracks have such epic production values that this might not be a major issue.
And Then There Were Three is an excellent album in the Genesis back catalogue; but with the whole Gabriel-Collins debate, it may not be the only gem from them from the 1970s.

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.
