Product Description

Product Description

When the departures of original frontman Peter Gabriel and guitarist Steve Hackett left Genesis a studio trio of Phil Collins, Tony Banks, and Mike Rutherford, few could have expected the band to climb to greater levels of commercial success. But that's exactly what happened, and Genesis' left-field rebirth as a unlikely pop act began with this album, which introduced the newly slimmed-down lineup. But that's not the whole story. While the haunting love song "Follow You, Follow Me" introduced the band to the singles charts, elsewhere the group's penchant for accessibly complex composition and evocative lyrical dramas is in force on tracks like "Deep in the Motherlode," "Burning Rope," "Down and Out," and "Ballad of Big." --Scott Schinder

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, although slightly lacking in diversity. July 18 2004
By Matt B
Format:Audio CD
Steve Hackett's departure is perhaps felt mainly by the overall lack of diversity of this album. The previous efforts see more style divergence whereas this album portrays more of a consensus in songwriting.
Wind & Wuthering, for example, seems to reflect a lot of this album with the songs "all in a mouse's night" "afterglow", and the main parts of "eleventh earl of mar". However it is Steve Hackett's touch that keeps that album more interesting, such as the accoustic interlude in "eleventh earl of mar" or the classic introduction to "Blood on the rooftops." Mike Rutherford could not fully duplicate his elegant style, and therefore Tony Banks takes a more dominant role to further fill in the gap that Steve left.
That being said, I enjoy listening to this album. The creativity is definitely still with the three remaining members. The production is above average, the compositions have nice quirks and touches to them. Phil Collins does some inspired, non-typical drum/percussion work in addition to his relaxed vocal stylings. Its middle way between the early 80s efforts and the 70s progressive efforts, so its no surprise that this album can be enjoyed by those on both sides of the tracks. I'd give it 5 stars, but in comparison to previous genesis works its only a 4 star album.

Plenty has been commented about this album, thus I will only mention that --in my opinion-- this is Genesis' most soulful and melodic release, courtesy mainly of Tony Banks' beautiful keyboard orchestration.
I recently re-discovered And Then There Were Three, and to my surprise, I found out this album to be one of Genesis' best, both musically and lyrically. Oddly enough, my least favourite track here is the most commercially known (Follow You), as the other songs, when slowly digested, have many different and interesting things to offer.
This is not The Lamb, Selling England, et all... and it is definitevly not the horrible sellout of the band's post-releases. This is simply darn good music! I challenge hardcore Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett's aficionados to really listen to this album and to finally give credit where is due.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb debut for Genesis as a trio June 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
Genesis released their first album as a three piece appropriately titled And Then There Were Three in March of 1978. Three would prove to be the band's magic number. When the departures of original frontman Peter Gabriel in 1975 and guitarist Steve Hackett in 1977 respectively left Genesis a studio trio of Phil Collins handling double duties of drums and vocals, Tony Banks on keyboards and Mike Rutherford alternating between guitar and bass, few could have expected the band to achieve Gold success in the US. However, that's exactly what happened with this album and the band's rebirth as a unlikely more pop sounding act began with this album, which introduced the newly slimmed-down lineup. The haunting closing love song Follow You Follow Me introduced the band to the singles charts here in the US and caused And Then to go Gold in May of 1978(eventually Platinum). Aside from this track, the album had other great tracks like the haunting Many Too Many, the great Deep in the Motherlode, the epic Burning Rope which had some great guitar work from Rutherford whom is a great guitarist although not near Steve Hackett caliber, the fast-paced opener Down and Out and the funny cowboy number Ballad of Big. The highlight is really The Lady Lies which goes for about six minutes and is a great art rock/pop track. This album paved the way for the decade Genesis would reign, the 80s. I first bought this album in October of 1997 on cassette and played it constantly. I eventually bought the remastered CD a month later and the remaster buries the original album, cassette, 8-track and CD sonically as well. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genesis steers down a pop direction. June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Genesis' third post-Gabriel outing with Phil Collins as lead singer of the group is a very transitional album where almost all of their progressive rock style is shed and the band reveals a much more accessible pop sound. Their biggest hit to date at this point was their 1978 charting single entitled "Follow You Follow Me" which is a really good pop single.
This album at the same time still has a sort of wintery feel similar to their previous outing "Wind and Wuthering" but the sound of this album is much more accessible and easier to get into than their previous outings. In my perspective, this is their least progressive album they've ever made in their 30 year career. Even their more pop sounding 80s works had a more progressive style than "Then There Were Three". "The Burning Rope" is the closest this album comes to being progressive but it's only a little over 7 minutes long but it's still a really good song.
Not their best by any stretch of the imagination but ATTWT is arguably their transitional album where they went from prog rock and went totally pop and this has likely angered a lot of their audiences at this point but I feel like I'm the only one who loves almost everything they've done from Nursery Cryme to Invisible Touch and all the way to Calling All Stations.
