This is not a Genesis forum

Xcommunication is the first Brand X album after Phil Collins departed and I highly recommend it. With two of the original members (Percy and John) plus newcomer, Frank Katz, this new lineup, although short-lived, produced this album and Manifest Destiny in hopes to continue the same tight package as they did with Phil; however, the music is distinctly harder-edged than before (Manifest is markedly more so). Frank Katz, although a great drummer in his own right, is not Phil, but he is competent and convincing. After this album and Manifest Destiny, Percy and Frank departed to form Tunnels, which, in my opinion, is more like the Brand X of yore. And for you hard-core Brand X fans, check out the "missing" album (different label) "Marscape" by Jack Lancaster/Robin Lumley with the entire 1970's Brand X team.

I agree with everybody.

I agree that Brand X can be as interesting without Phil Collins as with him. I also think that Genesis "Calling All Stations" album was the best thing they'd done since "Duke". The Dividing Line and Uncertain Weather are as classic as any Genesis song from the 70's or 80's.

All he's saying is that Genisis collapsed AFTER Phil Collins left... Which is completely true. "Calling All Stations" is the worst piece of half-baked tripe two old geezers ever worked on. Don't tell someone that they know NOTHING of Genesis, simply because they put down this sham of a Genesis album. So, Banks can still manage to work out a listenable track or two? Doesn't mean Genesis isn't a mere shadow of what they were. OK, "Rael"? Gabriel is churning out WAYYYY better stuff than these boobs. I KNOW my Genesis, so take it easy.

I love that I can read about a stellar drummer in Modern Drummer Magazine and instantly find his albums on e-music and download them. What a great place to find new and unique tunes! This is some wicked cool fusion

highly recommended

Unlike GENESIS, when Phil COLLINS left BRAND X the level and commitment to musical creativity and originality did not die. In fact I enjoy the post Phil COLLINS era BRAND X as much as that with him. "X-Communication" features the line-up of Percy Jones, John Goodsall and Frank Katz who blend rock, jazz, funk and fusion into this masterful recording. This powerful trio get into some pretty wild musical moments with heavy instrumental workouts and complex performances. "X-Communication" showcases the fretless bass action of Percy Jones with the complex rhythms of Frank Katz and the agile fingerings of john Goodsall. Without a question "X-Communication" is a magnificent album and is highly recommended to all fans of progressive rock.

Six Degrees of Brian Eno’s Another Green World

By Richard Gehr, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »
