  2. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying.

    So it begs the question..... Phil Collins (solo) vs Genesis

    I'll chime in with a very personal favorite.

    I didn't really like your 2 choices - you should have had an option that said, I like both! But I would probably favor Genesis (not counting the wretched Calling All Stations, which Phil had nothing to do with it, I might add) over Phil's solo career if I had to choose one. Yet, I would really find it better to say they are both equally good. :D

    Phill Collins behind the drum kit with Peter Gabriel out front is the best version for me.

    Did you know that Whitney Houston's debut LP, called simply Whitney Houston had 4 number one singles on it? Did you know that? It's hard to choose a favorite among so many great tracks, but "The Greatest Love of All" is one of the best, most powerful songs ever written about self-preservation, dignity. Its universal message crosses all boundaries and instills one with the hope that it's not too late to better ourselves. Since, Elizabeth, it's impossible in this world we live in to empathize with others, we can always empathize with ourselves. It's an important message, crucial really. And it's beautifully stated on the album.

    Phil Collins should be killed and eaten. I think gorilla sodomy would be preferable to listening to his music.

    Genesis with Peter Gabriel was waaaaay better.

    Isn't there gorilla sodomy in the movie "Man with One Red Shoe?" Or am I thinking of a different movie? There's a guy in a gorilla costume, from a H'ween party or something, who mistakenly ends up in a gorilla cage. Just ridiculous.

    Huey Lewis and the News burst out of San Francisco onto the
    national music scene at the beginning of the decade, with their selftitled
    rock pop album released by Chrysalis, though they really
    didn't come into their own, commercially or artistically, until their
    1983 smash, Sports. Though their roots were visible (blues,
    Memphis soul, country) on Huey Lewis and the News they seemed a
    little too willing to cash in on the late seventies/early eighties taste
    for New Wave, and the album - though it's still a smashing debut -
    seems a little too stark, too punk. Examples of this being the
    drumming on the first single, "Some of My Lies Are True (Sooner or
    Later)," and the fake handclaps on "Don't Make Me Do It" as well as
    the organ on "Taking a Walk." Even though it was a little bit
    strained, their peppy boy-wants-girl lyrics and the energy with which
    Lewis, as a lead singer, instilled all the songs were refreshing.
    Having a great lead guitarist like Chris Hayes (who also shares
    vocals) doesn't hurt either. Hayes' solos are as original and
    unrehearsed as any in rock. Yet the keyboardist, Sean Hopper,
    seemed too intent on playing the organ a little too mechanically
    (though his piano playing on the second half of the album gets
    better) and Bill Gibson's drumming was too muted to have much
    impact. The songwriting also didn't mature until much later, though
    many of the catchy songs had hints of longing and regret and dread
    ("Stop Trying" is just one example).

    Now if you'll excuse me, I have to return some video tapes....

    You're thinking of Trading Places with Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd. It's in the last few seconds of this clip.

    Ah, thank you. I was thinking it was more popular than the Man with One Red Shoe. They both had Coleman as a bad guy maybe?

    Anyway, this thread is ruining my day, as 45% currently view Phil on his own as anything but an abomination.

    I just don't care, what they say-ay-ay.
    I never played by the same rules, that they play!

    I'm just bald and washed up,
    So get outta my way-ay-ay!

    Good grief, "killed and eaten"? Whatever.

    Waaaaaaaaay better? That might be somewhat true if you're talking about theatrics.

    But, by your first comment, you obviously have toooooooo much hate to be objective.
