Genesis - Calling all Stations/1997. I'm one of the few Genesis fans who thought this was a great album: I thought Ray Wilson added a dark and mysterious element to the songs that would hearken back somewhat to Gabriel.This isn't a overtly commercial effort, which is a big reason why this album got little radio airplay and was not a success sales wise. Mike Rutherford's guitar and bass work is among his strongest in sometime, and Tony Banks shines on this album, but then for me he has always been the soul of Genesis. I think this album and We Can't Dance are both a great reaffirmation of the band's progressive rock identity. This isn't a return to the Peter Gabriel years and this isn't a retread on the Phil Collins years, this is very much a new sounding Genesis that deserves to be heard.In all, a very very good album from Banks Rutherford and not to forget Ray Wilson whose vocals are fine. And hats off also to Nir Zidkyahu and Nick D'Virgilio who had some huge shoes to fill. Great drumming. This is a highly recommended album. Sure the best Genesis Albums are the 70s...pur Prog Albums. But CaS was much better than the last Genesis with Collins works.
