** Can also, oddly enough, refer to the band's choice of equipment. Hardcore fans blame the Korg Wavestation for Tony Banks' muddy, generic sound in the 1990's, and many (and occasionally even bandmembers) will point out that quite a few of the older songs don't sound particularly well on anything but the old, worn-out, temperamental machines they were recorded on [[note]]In particular, "Watcher of the Skies" was recorded on a [=MkII=] Mellotron, an analogue sampler using magnetic tape, and one not meant for anything but studio use. When it finally broke for the last time, the band switched to a "portable" Mellotron M400, whose single manual keyboard as opposed to the MkII's dual manuals sucked the life out of the song and led to its retirement[[/note]]. And let's not get into Phil Collins and drum machines unless you want to open another can of worms.

*** Side one hell. The whole album is generally considered a masterpiece. [[note]]Although many, including Phil Collins himself, feel that the album gets progressively weaker towards the end[[/note]] Probably not the place to start for someone new to the band though - ''Foxtrot'' and ''Selling England'' are good choices.

* [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously Took The Bad Album Seriously]]: Ray Wilson, whose work with Genesis on the album ''Calling All Stations'' was outright panned, has seemed to parlay his brief stint into a substantial career. To this day, he still performs songs from ''Calling All Stations'' live and recently appeared as a guest singer at Steve Hackett's 2013 ''Genesis Revisited II'' show at the Royal Albert Hall.

Added DiffLines:

** To a lesser extent, Foxtrot helped make Genesis one of the top prog bands in England and parts of Europe, and Selling England By The Pound gave Genesis their first small taste of touring success in the US (and their first chart success, 'I Know What I Like' reaching 21 in the UK chart).

** Likewise, Tony Banks gets some heat for causing two members of its classic lineup, Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett, to leave the group due to CreativeDifferences.

** Ironically, given the fights over Collins versus Gabriel among fans, some listeners have reported having trouble even distinguishing Collins' voice from Gabriel's.
