Product Description


Collins closed out the '80s with the chart-topping ...But Seriously, which spawned four mega-hit singles and also mirrored its title in a turn toward more pensive, socially conscious fare, such as "Another Day in Paradise" and "That's Just the Way It Is." The set also contains Collins's finest batch of lost-love songs ("Do You Remember," "Something Happened on the Way to Heaven," "I Wish It Would Rain Down") since his first two albums, meaning, likely as not, that art was served at the expense of yet another relationship. Collins is aided on the album by some of his famous friends, including Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Stephen Bishop, and David Crosby. --Daniel Durchholz

4.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes An Album.. Oct. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes in life, there is a album that really speaks out about the times in our society. From the worlds of Grunge, to the early cases of MTV in the front of our minds, with music videos from Madonna and Billy Idol. Then, there are some of the other albums, that let the music speak for itself. In that case, Phil Collins proved that case with his entire solo career, and his career with Genesis.
His 1989 album, But Seriously.., is still one of the most simple and understanding albums I've ever heard. The music from this album, is just as strong as you could expect. Each song tells a different story either about love, or about a important issue in society. That case came with Phil's mega-hit, Another Day In Paradise, which was #1 for four weeks on the charts. That would be one of five Top 40 songs Collins would earn from this album. Other songs like, Do You Remember?, Something Happened On The Way To Heaven, and All Of My Life, still showcase that state in the front of mind.
While many people don't think of Phil Collins music today, it will always remain in the hearts of millions of serious fans, that prove that the music speaks for itself, and speaks of a generation of the time as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Serious Phil Feb. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
Phil Collins took a lot of critical heat for making this album, 1989's "But Seriously." Apparently, the critics just couldn't handle the idea of Phil Collins, of all singers, singing songs about the problems in Northern Ireland ("That's Just The Way It Is"), South Africa ("Colours"), the homeless ("Another Day In Paradise"), etc. I say too bad for them, and three cheers to Phil. He made a great album. Besides, not ALL of the songs here are political, for Heaven's sake. And as for the political ones, they're good songs! There's nothing wrong with a recording artist taking some risks every now and then, even if that artist's name is Phil Collins. Phil gets things up and roaring with the great brassy blast of "Hang In Long Enough," and the great tunes keep on coming, such as the quiet beauty of "That's Just The Way It Is" & "Do You Remember," and the fun of "Something Happened On The Way To Heaven." The most controversial song on the album, the South Africa-inspired "Colours," is arguably the most adventurous track Phil has ever done, and, with some very strong shifts in mood throughout, as well as some very heartfelt lyrics, Phil pulls it off. The uplifting sing-along vibe of "I Wish It Would Rain Down" is next, followed by the brilliantly powerful, Grammy-winning classic "Another Day In Paradise," one of Phil's most haunting tunes, which kicks off the second half of equally-great songs in fine fashion, including "All Of My Life" and "Father To Son.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word: GREAT!! Dec 22 2001
By jao
Format:Audio CD
As a major Phil Collins fan, I already have a few of his solo and Genesis albums. One of the ones I didn't already have was ...But Seriously. I borrowed it from my mom the second that I found out she had it.
After listening to the whole album, I found out that it is a GREAT album from start to finish. Most Phil Collins fans immediately mention Face Value and No Jacket Required when they think of the famous singer. I agree that No Jacket Required is probably his best album, and Face Value is also great, but ...But Seriously is up there with them.
Anybody who is familiar with Phil Collins will immediately recognize the four huge hits that are included on ...But Seriously. These four hits are: "Do You Remember?," "Something Happened On The Way To Heaven," "I Wish It Would Rain Down," and "Another Day In Paradise." Most prospective buyers are probably most interested in these four hits, but if they make the purchase, they will find out that they've gotten even more for their money's worth.
The reason I say this is because every single song is worth listening to over and over again. It baffles me how "All of My Life" and "Find A Way to My Heart" weren't big hits. Without a doubt, both of those songs could have been radio superstars had they been released as singles.
Not only is Phil Collins one of the best singers of all time, but he is also a great drummer. Every song on ...But Seriously that has drumming in it, is Phil Collins's work. Many of the songs also feature catchy music solos, especially the ones in the song "Colours."
If you're looking for a great Phil Collins album, ...But Seriously would be a great one to purchase. It's one of the classic titles from the late 80's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album the lyrics tells it all May 19 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan ever since I heard "Another Day in Paradise" when I was only 7 years old, I didn`t even knew the language when I heard it. This album have many difference sounds, from the beautifull ballad "The way it is" which is about war and what affects it has on the familys and the people who love those who are dying in the war, NEED I SAY MORE, GREAT LYRIC! I always get tears in my eyes when I listen to it, even just the melody speaks to my heart. And the you have the uptempo song "Something Happened on the Way to heaven" which features great instruments with a certan Jazz influence, but still has the typicially pop song. The song "I wish it could rain down" is a love ballad in famous Phil style.
But still no songs of him have ever touched my soul and heart like "Another Day in Paradise" it was one of the songs that got me into music. The lyrics speaks about homeless people, and how we treat them, and how they feels about the whole situation, DISCRIMINATION is an important word. The melody is BEAUTIFUL and you just got to admit that songs can have an affect appart from just being "music". Well although my music taste have changed alot since the time, this is a real classic. Hope he comes up with a masterpiece again soon(like his stuff with Genesis), Buy this music fans-:)
