An awesome track that is often criminally overlooked probably because it appears "And Then There Were Three". This album is not particularly popular with Genesis fans and apart from "Follow You Follow Me", is almost ignored. However, tracks like "Many Too Many" provided that vital link between the "Wind And Wuthering" and "Duke".
It's the best Genesis song. The most complete. It has a vocal part, excellent lyrics: Phil Collins does the main vocals and chorus. And an instrumental part with good battery, guitar and organ.
Phill Collins drumming is really good here. Rutherford on the keyboards is just outstanding. This song got me into early genesis. This album is a must for anybody!
Why so low down? This is a brilliant song should be at least number 2?
Gotta make quality better...
One of my favorite songs by Genesis. Love the sound, it is so joyful. Can't get enough of this song!
"Hello son I hope you're having fun"
"You've got it wrong sir, I'm only the cleaner"
With that he fired, the other saying as he died,
"You've done me wrong, " it's the same old song forever, forever
Robbery Assault and Battery
The felon and his felony
Still remember listening to it for the first time. Caught me like heroin. Impossible to sing along with Peter┬'s vocals, and impossible to move your head with the beat too.. Amazing.
Most underrated Genesis song of all time. This with Hairless Heart is so powerful. Gabriel really lets go and produces some of the most fearsome vocals. My personal favourite on The Lamb along with The Lamia and In The Rapids
Would have been a great way to end Genesis. (But I'm a big fan of Calling All Stations)
Most epic Song Genesis ever did. Full of I don't know what to call it, but it is a lot... Don't know which Song should be better than this here. But I guess it is not very well known in Public.
A phenominal piece of musical poetry - heart warming, melancholic, hauntingListen to sample
I'm very surprised this song was not on the list! A story from Greek mythology beautifully told. There's a timeless, ethereal quality about this song in both the poetry and the music. The arrangement and musicianship has plenty to hold your interest, lots of change and contrast throughout. From the mellotron/cymbal crescendos accompanied by some delicate guitar work. The complex organ instrumental parts. The lively pace of the guitars, drums and flute that pick up around the lyric away from me cold blooded woman your thirst is not mine Colin's drumming is superb throughout this track. Unlike many of Genesis recordings that sadly I feel have been spoiled by the use of some odd sounding synths and 'experimental' guitar work this track survives the test of time relatively unscathed!
How is Invisible Touch in the Top 10 and this be only 49? Absolutely shameful! Maybe I love this song so much because I love greek mythology but it really sends shivers down my spine during the crescendo at the end. It creates atmosphere and tells such a vivid story, what does Invisible Touch create? Nothing that's what, just trash.
