I love Genesis' prog-rock albums. But when I first heard the above, I really didn't know what to make of it. Maybe because even for them, it was too different or even feminine in parts. But after borrowing it from a friend a few years ago and giving it another chance, I now absolutely LOVE it. And it was also Hackett's final work with them - he really is an arpeggiation master. In fact, it's probably my favourite Genesis album.



that's because you ARE a faggot.


Ironic, coming from someone who wears fishnets.

You're fucking crazy. Hackett slays. You have to give this album another chance. Blood On The Rooftops is as lyrically relevant today as it was then...


Dark and grey, an English film, the Wednesday play
We always watch the queen on Christmas day
Won't you stay?

Though your eyes see shipwrecked sailors you're still dry
The outlooks fine though Wales might have some rain
Saved again

Lets skip the news boy (I'll make some tea)
The Arabs and the Jews boy (too much for me)
They get me confused boy (puts me off to sleep)
And the thing I hate - oh lord!
Is staying up late, to watch some debate, on some nations fate

Hypnotised by batman, tarzan, still surprised!
You've won the west in time to be our guest
Name your prize!

Drop of wine, a glass of beer dear whats the time?
The grime on the tyne is mine all mine all mine
Five past nine.

Blood on the rooftops - Venice in the spring
Streets of San Francisco - a word from Peking
The trouble was started - by a young Errol Flynn
Better in my day - oh lord!
For when we got bored, wed have a world war, happy but poor

So lets skip the news boy (I'll go make that tea)
Blood on the rooftops (too much for me)
When old mother goose stops - they're out for 23
Then the rain at lords stopped play
Seems Helen of troy has found a new face again

Blood On the Rooftops and Unquiet Slumbers>In That Quiet Earth>Afterglow ain't too shabby either.
