Genesis - Abacab Oh my god...this is attrocious! I really like Invisible Touch but after one listen through this I'm disgusted. "Who Dunnit?" is perhaps the worst song I've ever heard and after the first listen the rest is give or take. I only need one more album to complete my Genesis collection...that is the self titled one...I sure hope its better than this thing. It took me forever to dive in Collins-pop era Genesis and I've liked half and disliked half. This is the reason I've been afraid to go past Duke all these years...I'll give Abacab a few more listens to perhaps sink in.
Pat Metheny Group - Speaking Of Now This album rules. One of my fusion favs of the 21 Century so far.
Rush - Hold Your Fire Prime Mover has been my favorite Rush song for years and Hold Your Fire is amazingly consistant. I could never pick a favorite Rush album but this one certainly graces my cd player/turntable almost every week. With classics like Mission, Force Ten, Time Stand Still, Lock & Key, and Turn The Page not to mention every other track, this album is perfection in my books (along with pretty much every Rush album).
