~  GENESIS  ~

 

Angleterre  -  rock progressif  -  * Référence *

 

                                         
    
Genesis  est un groupe britannique de rock à classer parmi les créateurs du mouvement
    rock progressif,
qui a connu un succès important à partir des années 1970, culminant
    dans les décennies 1980 et 1990.
Peter Gabriel , puis  Phil Collins  après le départ du
    premier en 1975, ont été au chant les figures emblématiques du groupe.
    Tous deux, ainsi que  
Mike Rutherford  avec son groupe  Mike and The Mechanics ,
    
Steve Hackett  et  Anthony Phillips  ont également connu un grand succès international
    en tant qu'artistes indépendamment du groupe.

      

        Il faut distinguer plusieurs périodes dans l'histoire du groupe :

   - le
Genesis  d'adolescents anglais du collège Charterhouse, ambitieux et doués,
   - le
Genesis  de " Trespass / Nursery Cryme " pas décisif, avancée majeure pour le groupe,
   - le
Genesis  au rock théâtral, marqué par les masques de " l'ange " Peter Gabriel ,
   - le
Genesis  qui atteint des sommets sur " Broadway ",
   - le
Genesis  post Gabriel ,
   - le
Genesis  d' " Abacab " avec un  Phil Collins  super-star, qui régulièrement nous sortent
                     un album aux hits planétaires,
   - le dernier
Genesis  ou les deux musiciens survivants remplacent  Phil Collins  par le
                     jeune écossais  
Ray Wilson .
 
                                               Un pilier du rock progressif !!!!

From Genesis to revelation   ( 1968 )

 titres: where the sour turns to sweet
            In the beginning, fireside song,
            the serpent, am I very wrong?,
            in the wilderness, the conqueror, In hiding,
            one day, window, the silent sun.
 
bonus :patricia, try a little sadness, she is beautiful,              image blown out, the silent sun, that's me,
             a winter's  tale, one-eyed hound,
             where the sour  turns to sweet,
             in the beginning, in the bwilderness,
             one day, image  blown out.

Trespass   ( 1970 )

la voix de Peter Gabriel s'envole au dessus
de trames sonores dominées par
les claviers de
Tony Banks .... 

  titres: looking for someone, white mountain,
             visions of angels, stagnation, dusk, the knife.

Nursery cryme    ( 1971 )

arrivée de Phil Collins et Steve Hackett ,
on est passé des légendes moyen-âgeuses
aux comptines cruelles de l'époque Victorienne. 

  titres: the musical box, for absent friends,
             the return of the giant hogweed
             seven stones, harold the barrel,
             harlequin, the fountain of salmacis.

Foxtrot    ( 1972 )

la superbe voix de  Peter Gabriel de plus en
plus " théâtralisée " soutenue par orgue,
guitare pointilliste et rythmique efficace.
 

  titres: watcher of the skies, time table,
             get'em out by friday,
             can-utility and the coastliners,
             horizons, super's ready.

Live    ( 1973 )

sur scène ils ne se contentent pas de
reproduire le contenu de leur disque,
mais nous offrent un spectacle complet. 

  titres: watcher of the skies,
             get'em out by friday,
             the return of the giant hogweed,
             musical box, the knife.

Selling england by the pound

( 1973 )

album le plus abouti de leur première époque,
l'art de la composition alliée à une maîtrise
impeccable de l'execution. 

  titres: dancing with the moonlight knight,
             I know what I like, firth of fifth,
             more fool me, the battle of epping forest,
             after the ordeal, the cinema show, aisle of plenty.

The lamb lies down on broadway  ( 1974 )

album qui assoie définitivement la position de Genesis,
musique plus sombre, moins aérienne,
Peter Gabriel quitte le groupe.

 cd1 : the lamb.., fly on a windshield,
          broadway melody, cuckoo cocoon,
          in the cage, the grand parade.., back in n.y.c,
          hairless heart, counting  out time,
          carpet crawlers, the chamber of 32...,
 
cd2 : lilywhite lilith, the waiting room, anyway,
          here comes the supernatural..., the lamia,
          silent sorrow..., the colony of.., a visit to..,
          ravine, the  light.., riding the scree, in the rapids, it.

Live in Montreal     ( 1974 )

 cd1 : watcher of the skies,
          dancing with the moonlight knight,
          the cinema show,I Know what I like,
          firth Of fifth, the musical box.
 cd2 : horizons, the battle of Epping forest,
          supper's ready, In the cage, carpet crawl.

Awed man out      ( 1975 )

 titres: cuckoo cocoon, back in N.Y.C.,
            hairless heart, counting out time,
            the carpet crawlers, lilywhite lilith,
            the waiting room, anyway,
            silent sorrow in empty boats,
            the colony of slippermen (cut) , ravine,
            the light dies down on Broadway,
            riding the scree.

A trick of the tail  ( 1976 )

 Phil Collins  prend la place vacante de chanteur,
on y retrouve l'inspiration et
la veine d'avant " the lamb ".

 titres: dance on a volcano, entangled,
            squonk, mad man moon,
            robbery assaultand battery, ripples,
            a trick of the tail, los endos.

Wind and wuthering   ( 1977 )

 Phil Collins  semble déjà plus à l'aise
et réussi à situer sa voix aux milieu
des nappes d'orgues et des arpèges de guitares.

 titres: eleventh earl of mar, one for the vine,
            your own special way, wot gorilla ?,
            all in a mouse's night, blood on the rooftops,
            unquiet slumber for the sleepers in that quiet earth,
            afterglow.

Seconds out   ( 1977 )

un double live qui permet aux instrumentistes
de se mettre en évidence et de laisser libre
cours à leurs inspiration. 

 cd1: squonk, the carpet crawl,
         robbery assault and battery, afterglow,
         firth of fifth, I know  what I like, the lamb..,
         the musical box,
 
cd2: supper's ready, cinema show,
         dance on volcano, los endos.

Spot the pigeon     ( 1977 )

 titres: match of the day, pigeons, Inside and out.

And them there three   ( 1978 )

 départ de  Steve Hackett ,
disque de transition commercialement réussi,
délaissant peu à peu le progressif
pour une musique plus pop.

 titres: down and out, undertow, ballad of big,
            snowbound, burning rope, deep in the motherlode,
            many to many, scenes from a night's dream,
            say it's alright joe, the lady lies,
            follow you follow me.

Duke    ( 1980 )

 le groupe est définitivement entré dans
l'ère de la pop fm mâtinée de jazz-rock,
péché mignon de  
Phil Collins ,
N°1 en Angleterre.

 titres: behind the lines, duchess, guide vocal,
            man of our times, misunderstanding, heathaze,
            turn it on again, alone tonight, cul de sac,
            please don't ask, duke's travels, duke's end.

Abacab    ( 1981 )

 du FM satiné pimenté de white soul,
leur meilleur disque de cette période.

 titres: abacab, no reply at all, me and sarah jane,
            keep it dark, dodo / lurker, who dunnit ?, 
            man on the corner, like it or not, another record.

Three sides live   ( 1982 )

 titres: turn it on again , dodo / lurker , abacab,
            behind the lines, duchess, me and Sarah Jane,
            follow you follow me, misunderstanding,
            In the cage / cinema show / slippermen,
            afterglow, one for the vine, fountain of slamacis,
            It / watcher of the skies.

Genesis    ( 1983 )

résultat extraordinaire pour cet opus,
se contentant de reproduire une formule qui
marche grâce à un savoir-faire bien maîtrisé.

 titres: mama, that's all, home by the sea,
            second home by the sea, illegal alien,
            takin'it all too hard, just a job todo,
            silver rainbow, it's gonna get better.

Invisible touch   ( 1986 )

le trio pulvérise tous les records de vente,
" invisible touch " archétype du modèle
Pop FM Funky devient N°1 aux USA.
 

 titres: invisible touch, tonight, tonight,
            land of confusion, in too deep,
            anything she does, domino,
            throwing in all away, the brazilian.

We can't dance   ( 1991 )

 nouvel album, avec quelques nuances qui
avaient disparues des albums précédents,
dimension épique de leur période initiale.

 titres: no son of mine, jesus he knows me,
            driving the last spike, I can't dance,
            never a time, dreaming while you sleep,
            tell me why, living forever,
            hold on my heart, way of the world,
            since I lost you, fading light.

            that's all, in too deep, tonight, tonight,
            invisible touch.

The way we walk " the longs "

volume 2. ( 1993 )

" the longs " pour les fans de rock progressif
qui dégusteront 20 minutes de " old medley "
ou des versions allongées de leurs tubes. 

 titres: old medley, driving the last spike, domino,
            fading light, home by the sea, drum duet.

Calling all stations  ( 1997 )

 départ de Phil Collins , nouveau chanteur,
l'album sonne comme du
Phil Collins
chanté par
Peter Gabriel .

 titres: calling all stations, congo, shipwrecked,
            alien afternoon, not about us,
            if that's what you need, the dividing line,
            uncertain weather, small talk,
            there must be some other way, one man's fool.

The Ray Wilson lost tracks  ( 1997 )

 titres: banjo man, 7-8, nowhere else to turn,
            run out of time, sign your life away, phret,
            anything now, papa he said.

Live in Poland,  Katowice  ( 1998 )

 titres: no son of mine, land of confusion,
            the lamb lies down on Broadway,
            calling all stations, alien afternoon,
            carpet crawlers, there must be some other way,
            domino, shipwrecked, firth of fifth, Congo,
            home by the sea, dancing with the moonlit knight,             follow you follow me, lover's leap, mama,
            the dividing line, Invisible touch, turn it on again,
            throwing it all away, I can't dance.
