Product Description

Amazon.ca

Duke saw Genesis start, somewhat unwillingly, to shed their progressive-rock mantle. Partly this was a response to the radically changing musical scene, partly a result of Phil Collins's new-found influence within the band as a songwriter, and partly it was a logical direction if they were to capitalize upon the success of "Follow You Follow Me" from 1978's And Then There Were Three. Recorded at Abba's Polar Studios in Stockholm, Duke showcased a more commercial sound, brisker arrangements, and more down-to-earth (some would say merely more prosaic) lyrics. Though Tony Banks was still responsible for the majority of the songwriting, turning in the classic "Duchess" and "Heathaze," the album also contains Collins's first two solo compositions, including "Misunderstanding," a template for the songs of his forthcoming solo career. In contrast to the relatively muddy-sounding And Then There Were Three, Duke is clear and sharp, with Collins's increasingly arena-friendly drum sound showcased in the mix. --James Swift

1.0 out of 5 stars The trio had better solo acts! Feb. 13 2014
Format:Audio CD
Despite the fact that MISUNDERSTANDING IS A STOLEN SONG from from Sly & The Family Stone's 1969 hit "Hot Fun In The Summertime" Greatest Hits by Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford had an album out called Smallcreep's Day with Anthony Phillips on keyboards, while Tony Banks has an album out called A Curious Feeling with Chester Thomson on drums. Phil Collins had a Brand X album out called Product where Phil got most of his sound effects from, listen to the song Wal to Wal. Then the sound effects on Behind the Lines went on Genesis founder/guitarist/writer Anthony Phillips' 1984 in 1981. Steve Hackett had Defector and Spectral Mornings Peter Gabriel had 3 (Melt) where Phil played drums on the 1st track Intruder. Anthony Phillips' Sides should also be looked into as the song Nightmare was used to make Man Of Our Times. On top of all that Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins played on Robert Fripp's solo album Exposure so evidently this band was no longer a cohesive one just three solo acts. Even Mike Rutherford said it himself on the Genesis on Duke interview " If it weren't for the solo acts".

there are some great tunes on this but overall not their best - not certain how much they worked at this but to me this was really trying to work their more commercial side - it work on some tunes - but failed on others

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Genesis album July 8 2005
Format:Audio CD
This one's my fave. I jsut can;t get enough of Behind the Lines, Duke's Travels and Duke's End. Cul-De-Sac is also quite the drug. Although the smoother songs go into the more typical 80's ballade style, the big songs totally adjust the intensity and form a perfect balance.
The drums on Behind the Lines and Duke's Travels/end are absolutely insane. As a drummer I'm fascinated by anything Phil Collins has touched. Keeping the basic structure neat and simple he simply injects a touch of character to the sound, playing things that are not necessarly impossible to do, but just so well placed it beats any insane pattern another would come up with.
PS: For kicks, if you enjoyed this album like I did, I suggest you find the live version of Duke's Travels/End - Sounds like one of those Phial and Chester duos. Absolutely IN-SA-NE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genesis kicks off the 80s in a big way June 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
Genesis released their first album of the 1980s entitled Duke in March of 1980. The album was the band's first of the new decade and Duke saw the band start to shed their progressive-rock sound slowly but surely. This was mainly because of the radically changing musical scene and also because of drummer and vocalist Phil Collins' new-found influence within the band as a songwriter and also to capitalize upon the success of 1978's Gold selling Then There Were Three. Recorded at Abba's Polar Studios in Stockholm, Duke showcased a more commercial sound, brisker arrangements, and more down-to-earth (some would say merely more prosaic) lyrics. Though keyboardist Tony Banks was still responsible for the majority of the songwriting, turning in the songs Guide Vocal Heathaze and Cul-De-Sac. Also, guitarist and bassist Mike Rutherford had his songs Man of Our Times and Alone Tonight. The album also contains Collins's first two solo compositions, the Top 20 US hit Misunderstanding and Please Don't Ask which was intended for Face Value but Tony and Mike loved the demo version of the song so much that they decided to record it as a Genesis track. The songs all three wrote together were the opening Behind the Lines and Duchess, the British hit Turn it On Again and the classic finale of Duke's Travel and Duke's End. This album was another Top 20 smash and another Gold seller for the band. I first bought this CD in October of 1997 when I bought the remastered edition and it is easily one of their best efforts. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sensible fans know bands evolve June 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
I felt compelled to give a brief review of Duke because of the inexplicably negative ones here, so that those new to Genesis or who haven't listened to Duke would know the truth. I first bought this record at the age of 13 a few years after its release, and it has always stood as one of my favorites of the Genesis catalog, as well as among my record collection as a whole. I return to it time and again. As others have pointed out, stylistically it's a transitional album for the group, between their art-rock period and their more pop-oriented era. As such, it has elements of both eras and this is one of its great attributes. This is simply a phenomenal listening experience. It's ear candy from start to finish, with doses of the layered, complex arrangements we love from this band, like "Duke's Travels/Duke's End," to pop tunes like "Turn It on Again" that never get old. It is wholly accessible both to those who might dig Phil Collins' solo stuff and those who are looking for more intelligent and stylish art rock. No it ain't "Lamb Lies Down..." or "Selling England...," but all bands evolve and like those records, "Duke" has its own prominent place in the creative world of Genesis.

2.0 out of 5 stars Duke marked June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Duke marked the start of the late period of Genesis (1980-1997) when the band were a pop/rock act with less then 4 prog rockers on every album. As such Duke seriously comes up short. Theres a lot of terrible numbers on this album and the only highlights on this album are the 2 and 1/2 minute intros of Behind The Lines and Duchess, the endings of both songs, the instrumental part of Dukes travels (not the lyrics which are unoriginally lifted from Guide Vocal) and Dukes End even though it is also unoriginal. These places show the group could atleast still show great creativity.
