5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best albums ever, 4 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Duke (Audio CD)
i grew up listening to my dads Genesis records, and for me Duke always stuck in my head, and the one that 15 years after 1st hearing it stills makes me jump up and down (and air drum) like mad! from the triumphant start of Behind the Lines to the reprise that is Dukes End, the album is full of brilliance, not one filler, not one moment where you feel like skipping. even great albums you want to do that on occasionally, but not this one. some of the songs were informed by Phil's acrimonious split from his 1st wife who cheated on him as can be seen on "misunderstanding" and "please dont ask". the lyrics throughout are simple but effective (no prog-tastic nonsensical lyrics like the Gabriel era Genesis!) and each member plays their instruments fantasticly. Collins drumming is fantastic and Tony Banks keyboard playing is skilful and brilliant, with top bass/guitar duties from Mike Rutherford not falling short anywhere. If i had to choose stand out tracks i wouldnt be able to because they're all brilliant. Though Genesis continued to release great albums and had released great ones before, this i believe was the greatest with just enough prog to stay true to their roots but enough pop to further increase their stature as a massive worldwide stadium rocking band!
