For you /Genesis/


File: ac399c70c98b4fb⋯.jpg (57.26 KB, 395x395, 1:1, 9d13ec1f2e6afbc76433864ea4….jpg)


Remember this board? No? Well, that's because, besides it being incredibly specific and niche to have a board dedicated to a single band, this board was a piece of shit when it was last active. That said, we love Genesis, so we'd like to see if a /genesis/ board can thrive if it's actually taken care of with dignity. These games quite clearly require some frontiers, so here are the new rules, although they should go without saying:


-No CP.

-All NSFW images must be spoiler'd.

-No spamming /pol/ shit. Any spam about kikes, cucks, and niggers and shit will be met with a ban. That shit destroyed this board the first time.

-No spam, period.

-Shitposts are fine if they're funny.


>Is discussion of all Genesis eras fine?

Absolutely. We don't share the anti-Peter bias that the board used to have. We unapologetically like Ray Wilson, too.

>Can I discuss all the solo stuff?

Of course. Besides, the solo work of the classic five, you can also discuss the works of Ant Phillips and Ray Wilson, as well as Daryl Stuermer, Chester Thompson, and all touring members. Hell, you can discuss Kevin Gilbert too since there's probably an alternate universe out there where didn't die before Calling All Stations came out. There's so much solo work out there from the Genesis guys that they're one of the few bands who can maintain a whole board.

>Does Calling All Stations count as a Genesis album?

Yes it does.

>What about From Genesis to Revelation?

No, that piece of shit is a Jonathon King monstrosity and the band themselves have disowned it. You can still talk about it, though.

>Can I discuss other progressive rock bands aside from Genesis, such as Yes and King Crimson.

50 years ago today, From Genesis to Revelation was released. I know it sucks and Jonathan King is a monster, but this was the beginning. The beginning of a grand band. We hope your life would never end!

Happy birthday, dad.

And face it, anti-Phil crowd, if it weren't for Mr. Collins Genesis would have had a nasty disbandment right after "The Lamb" tour, or go on with an expensive shit-tier vocalist. Perhaps without Collins I don't even know if the band would have survived after "Nursery Cryme," and we wouldn't have such fantastic lore like 'Supper's Ready' be the incredible piece that it is. Peter was the prose, Steve was the technique, Mike was the ink, Tony was the mind, and Phil was the glue.

On the other hand, Genesis would have remained a cult band without Phil. Short-lived and cerebral, they might have been the Velvet Underground of prog. They would still be the most circlejerked British prog outfit on 8chan, but for entirely different reasons. American Psycho would've been a slightly different story, in place of Phil Collins and Genesis would probably be someone like Lionel Ritchie and there'd be more focus on Huey Lewis and the News. Randy Newman and Sarah McLachlan would have took the Best Original Song Oscar in 2000 for "When She Loved Me," because not only there wouldn't be Phil Collins, there also wouldn't be Disney's "Tarzan" (1999). Maybe "Blame Canada" would have taken it on behalf of South Park, but then we wouldn't have the classic song "You'll Be in... Me."

And possibly the greatest outcome that would come if Phil Collins were never born, there would be no Undertale. Undertale's emotional core wouldn't be possible without the impact Collins made on Genesis. If it did exist, it would have a completely different story, and there'd be no meaning to the trash memes it spawned, so they wouldn't even be popular memes to begin with. The Internet might have been better off.

So be grateful that humanity has been blessed with Phil Collins sixty-seven years ago today. There's a lot of garbage that came with it but there's double the amount of gold behind it.

Somewhat off-topic but i went to Phil's concert in Mexico City last Saturday and it was great, he played some Genesis stuff along with his solo songs and it was all pretty enjoyable even with the lower key on all songs, and The Pretenders were pretty good as a supporting act too.

Embed is from the concert but its not mine because my phone's camera is a chink piece of shit that refused to focus on anything.



There's something about this that's, in a way, better than the Turn It On Again tour. More artists have to accept that if you're changing the key to compensate for voice change, you can't just play the song as if you're still in your prime. Lowering the key is not a small change. If this year's bout of "We won't rule a reunion out" amount to anything (they won't), it would have to be more Not Dead Yet and less Turn It On Again. And I liked Turn It On Again.

Of course, the best reunion possibility would be a new album instead of a tour, but that's even less likely.

At this point, I don't really care for a Genesis reunion. Their discography is complete in my book with a very diverse set of albums book-ended by the very dated (and questionable) From Genesis to Revelation and Calling All Stations respectively. A reunion album with old material might be interesting given if we get the chance to hear Peter sing a Phil song or Phil bring his voice to a song from Calling All Stations, though those recordings may never happen.

Might be off-topic, but there's a band called Swans that were recently still active after a 13-year hiatus. They mostly consist of men in their 60s and I guess are around the same age as the former members of Genesis today. Their newer work is very powerful and inspiring when you consider that, and some fans argue they were in their prime that recent, though I'd personally argue that they were their best in the 1990s.

Embed is from a recent October 28, 2017 Swans concert performing the opus of that tour: "The Knot." It's not as accessible as Genesis, I'll give you that, but if the remains of Genesis had this much energy at this stage of life, they could put on a great show and a couple of albums, though I suppose not everyone ages as well as Michael Gira, but at least they're not dead yet!

Shit, there's a solid case that Steve Hackett's prime was the 2000s, as soon as Roger King started working with him. As Genesis fans, it's tough to beat the sentimental value of pre-Cured Hackett because those albums were the 70s Genesis sound expanded, but that run from Darktown to Wolflight was something else. Those albums sound nothing like Genesis — they sound like modern prog albums and are much closer to Porcupine Tree than Genesis — but they evoke the same feelings that Genesis gave me and incorporate many of the same themes — the dark atmosphere, the narrative lyrics, the experimentation — into a modern sound. It's not unlike 80s Genesis in that way, those albums kept up with modern sounds but continued the same traditions of the band. In an alternate universe where Genesis kept going into the 2000s and were committed to prog, they'd be doing what Hackett's band did. I like Flower Kings as much as the next guy, but I'd be disappointed if Genesis became a nostalgia group rather than a band who brings the same spirit into a modern sound like Hackett.

I was extremely disappointed with The Night Siren, but I wouldn't count Hackett and co. out yet. He's still surrounded with the same personnel, and Out of the Tunnel's Mouth was a relative disappointment, albeit not as bad as The Night Siren, and then Hackett came back with Beyond the Shrouded Horizon which was awesome.

Have you taken the Phil pill yet, mateys?

it's a tough pill to swallow! The Phil pill was founded in 1999 by Sir Philipé Collins, who presents and narrates the attached video.

Forget red and blue pills, brown Phil are the way of the future.

Video related. Please leave your questions, comments, and concerns below about this radical new paradigm of thinking!

Hi all. Months ago, I picked up the 2007 ATTWT remix on CD, and while I thought the detail completely floors the original release, the brickwalled "dynamics" were a bit disappointing. As I went through the process of making an extended album out of ATTWT, I decided to re-EQ all of the songs to have universal sonics. What I didn't realize until I finished my first re-EQ, was that not only the characteristics of the sound appeared more natural, but dynamic range was somehow INCREASED.

Here's my remaster of Down and Out, which sounded brittle on the 2007 remaster in my opinion. Detail is lost on the way to 8chan, but there's no other way around that for me now. What do you guys think?


File: 3aa84001bddca4f⋯.jpg (114.9 KB, 593x592, 593:592, 2018vs2007.jpg)

In case you'd like to know, here are the waveforms.

Top is my re-EQ

Bottom is from the CD as is



>that unhealthy as fuck waveform

How the fuck did this pass QA?



It was the 2000s. The Loudness War was in full swing. While I prefer the clarity of most of the 2007 remasters, I'll admit the originals had better dynamics (and I'm a sucker for dynamic range).

Trick and Duke seem to be the only albums where I whole-heartily prefer the originals. I'm listening to a needle drop rip of an original Trick pressing I did months back as I type and it's not bad. It's just mastered a bit quietly to fit in all 51 minutes on a single disc. For everything else I prefer the 2007 mixes, and to be honest I don't notice any negligible difference for the Hugh Padgham albums. I will admit Calling All Stations was improved in 2007, with sweeter, analog-like midrange and less claustrophobic than the original.

Every Halloween I listen to Genesis 1983; Home by the Sea is the obvious connection, but Mama is pretty spooky too. Even though the rest of the album isn't that dark, it just feels like October to me.

What are your favorite spooky songs in the Genesis family? Intruder? Darktown? Any of Steve's various vampire-themed songs? Go wild.


The Musical Box is the spookiest the Genesis crew has ever got to me, but Mama, In the Air Tonight, the Home by the Sea suite and Intruder are not too far behind.

I still haven't listened to Hackett solo, but I'm planning to do it soon.

Almost forgot Genesis the album celebrated its 35th birthday a few days ago, and although I'm late to the occasion I'm listening to my vintage US Atlantic LP to celebrate. It just might be my favorite of 1980s-era Genesis, surpassing the mighty Duke for me.

Hello /genesis/ I'm the guy running the next 8chan cup here, taking over TNA the guy who does 8chanmania

Next January is the next 8chan Cup so I'm making this thread for you guys to get your team together

For you who don't know the 8chan Cup or the Infinity Cup as it's also been known as is a tournament of CPU soccer players playing each other, representing their board for glory above the other ones and such

What I'm going to need is a roster of 20 Players with their Positions, at least 2 of which needing to be Goalkeepers. As well as a roster I'm going to need a Kit design or two decided by you, a team logo, an Anthem and Goalhorns

What would be nice is the kit done in the format for direct import into the game of which I'm Using Pro Evolution Soccer 2017, as well as Medals for players, and skills, as well as any special imports for the players if you're able to muster it

Medals are a system the 8cup uses to make star players, of which regular players are rated 77 all round and GKs are 70

Unlike the last one there will be 3 teirs of Medals, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Bronze is 85 all round, Silver is 92 and Gold is 99, and each team can have 2 of each medaled players (2 bronze players, 2 silver and 2 gold).

Skills are the same as last time and are entirely optional as I can just put them in



And with that lets have some fun mates
