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

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Guy Dec 15 2012
By Jerlaw
Format:Audio CD
I first bought this album as a cassette many years ago. Now I have the CD. I have a few of his albums, but, in my opinion, this is the best. "Another Day in Paradise" is a mastyerpiece. Other great works on this album well worth hearing are"All of My Life" & "Find a Way to My Heart."
To try to describe these classics is beyond my writing abilities, so I'll leave it at that.
Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars With Colours June 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
With colours Collins turns out a quality piece of music making this album better then what came before and theres some big talents on the songs but thats still not saying much as theres a weak cover of The Temptations I Wish It Would Rain Down as well as weak matearial elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another hummable album from Phil Collins! May 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
I still like this Phil Collins album too. He makes such hummable songs! I can't tell you how many times I've hummed to "Another Day In Paradise" when it came on in 1989. I still do today. He's so good at these rhythms and melodies. The other songs like "Do You Remember" also help define '80s music so very well. I like the horn section on "Something Happened.." Deborah Cox did a dance remake of it a few years ago, so this song has a second life all over again. Phil's social themes throughout the album are well stated without being too preachy or pushy. This is a very deep album. I still like his '85 album the most, but this album comes a close second!

Whether you are a big fan of Phil Collins, or you thought Phil Collins was just some ridiculous 80's phony popstar, I would recommend you give But Seriously a listen. Of course, if you are a fan, then you probably already have heard this album a thousand times and agree with me, but if you are the latter, you will be surprised at how intense and how artisitic this album is.
Up until 1989 Phil dominated both TV and radio airwaves with his suave and cool music videos and songs, ranging from the sweet rock coolness of In The Air Tonight to the bubbly pop of Two Hearts. But Seriously gave Phil a new credibility. Here he is more than just that, he is a perfectionist artist.
The first single showed, for the first time, Phil Collins singing a different tune from his past hits, a song about the poor and homeless, Another Day In Paradise. The song became a worldwide anthem that year sparking repeated airplay and earning the grammy for best song. For many, this song is the highlight of the album. But in truth, its just one of a lot of hightlights. Actually, the entire album was the highlight of the moment.
The maturity of That's Just The Way It Is, Father To Son, and All Of My Life can easily cast over Another Day In Paradise. The sweet love ballad Do You Remember?, which appears in the soundtrack of Nicholas Cage's 1990 bomb Fire Birds, is deliciously good. The chilling rock epic I Wish It Would Rain Down that features guitar work from Eric Clapton dawns as a remarkable highlight on the album. Colors follows in the theme of Another Day In Paradise as a moment to give a thought to the poor and homeless. The album's closer Find A Way To My Heart, another track that was featured in the soundtrack to the Nicholas Cage flop Fire Birds, is an excellent pick for the closing of such a genuine album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phil Collins' second best-seller! Sept. 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
As the 1980's ended and the 1990's began,Phil Collins scored with a second best-seller,and his fourth all-original album,BUT SERIOUSLY. HANG IN LONG ENOUGH was on the charts when 1990 neared the end. ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE was the album's first hit in November 1989 when this album was released. Other hits include DO YOU REMEMBER?,SOMETHING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO HEAVEN, and I WISH IT WOULD RAIN DOWN. This album inspired Phil's sophomore band,The Serious Band and the title of the follow-up live album SERIOUS HITS LIVE.

This album is be far the best Collins record that I have. I have all of his albums and this one is by far the best one of his career. The sunny pop of "No Jacket Required" is gone and in it's place is a more complex yet accessible style that still holds strong over the years. "Another Day In Paradise" remains my favorite Collins' track to this very day. "Both Sides" was a great yet underrated follow-up to this album but "Dance Into The Light" was a dissapointment. It wouldn't be until "Testify" that I feel that the REAL Phil came back. Anyhow, "But Seriously" is truly a must-have album for anyone who likes truly rewarding pop music. Phil Collins is one of the best singers on the planet!

That of one who gets joyful looking at playgirl and getting molested by your rogaine played ol'pop isnt sayin much for your hilarious(not demented like you)overview of this very good album of social commentary and tales of love(not of your dad Rich jeez buddy)gosh no wonder why ya bashed this album it reflects on your life or authors it one way or another it is what it is great song after song from a legend and extremely talented musician who wrote tunes that made us think or reflect and in Rich's case made us cry from what phil's singing about. Awesome album to close the 80's with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top tappin' Dec 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
I must say that this CD quite impressed me. I'd known that Phil was a big band-ish kind of guy, but I didn't know he used those aspects of music so well.
With number like That's Just The Way It Is, Do You Remember and I Wish It Would Rain Down, we know Phil has a soft side. And I like it. He's sad, remiscant and melancholy, yet not depressed and mopey. Heat On The Street and Saturday Night and Sunday Morning pick up the pace a bit and pull some tapping from your toes.
As usual, Phil manages to combine kickin' tunes with catchy lryics, making for one heck of a CD.
I enjoy this Phil, but I'd like to see more of songs like Find a Way To My Heart and Colors. He's good at making songs with meanings. Let's see more of them.
