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

when I first got this album on vinyl I didn't seem to get into it as much as wind and wuthering or trick of the tail but reliving it now on cd I see how great this one actually was

well worth it

In the same time as this was released Steve Hackett put out an album called Please Don't Touch Chester Thomson plays on it and has all the missing solos that were always on a Genesis album. Follow You Follow Me is a crappy song! Please Don't Touch was a rejected Genesis song off the Wind And Wuthering album that Steve Hackett wrote but Phil Collins couldn't get into. Peter Gabriel had the 1978 Peter Gabriel 2 (Remastered) and Anthony Phillips had Wise After The Event I would recomend getting all three albums and making a post Genesis mix

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.

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.

Like Duke which follows it, ...And Then There Were Three has a wonderful overall sound and is solid from first track to last. Here, Gensis showed they were still progressive (the tile of the album refers to the sudden exit of guitarist Steve Hackett) but with a slightly more accessible sound and, at times, even a little darker. "Follow You Follow Me" was the single (one of the first "romantic" Genesis songs that attracted a female audience) but that is as "pop" as this album gets. It starts out with a powerful guitar riff in "Down and Out." There are several ballads; they include "Undertow," "Snowbound," "Many Too Many," and "Say It's Alright Joe" (although this one does rock in the middle). The latter, lyrically, is a little sentimentally overdone "I need another drink, to blow on the glass so I know I'm alive." Ironically, "Ballad of Big" is an upbeat track as is the fun, and one of my favorites, "Scenes From a Night's Dream" about a boy named Nimo who eats too much before sleeping and has wild fantasies.
The two monster tracks (each over 6 minutes) offer some of the best material here. Despite its rather mundane opening, "Burning Rope" has a beautiful, uplifting melody I can't help but hum along to despite the fatalistic, but very well-written, lyrics ("You're old and disillusioned now as you realize at last, that all you have accomplished here will have soon all turned to dust."). The Tony Banks penned "The Lady Lies" has a killer closing onslaught of piano. "Deep in the Motherlode" is also excellent. In fact, the only track I do not care for that much is "Snowbound" because it is repetitive. I definitely recommend this album to anyone familiar with Genesis' singles of the late 1970s and early 1980s who wants to dive deeper into the Genesis discography.

This 1978 album was my first Genesis album. It's still a sentimental favorite of mine a quarter-century later, though there are several better Genesis albums. Guitarist Steve Hackett had left, and the album was recorded entirely by the remaining members: drummer/singer Phil Collins, keyboardist Tony Banks, and guitarist/bassist Michael Rutherford. This album and "Duke" mark Genesis' gradual transition from progressive rock to the pop of the 80s. "...and Then There Were Three" is lyrically dark, but the music is less ponderous than on "Wind and Wuthering" and the songs are generally kept short. The band plays well but not showily; the only solo of any length is Banks' synthesizer solo in "The Lady Lies". Hackett's role in the band had gradually declined after Gabriel left, and Rutherford is able to fill it capably here (by the time of "We Can't Dance" and "Calling All Stations", his lead skills had atrophied).
The first half of the album is full of songs about mortality (and one about fighting over a contract with the record company, which may have felt like the same thing at the time). The best of these is "Burning Rope", one of those Tony Banks songs where he strung together a bunch of stray riffs he had lying around. The ballad "Undertow" is also strong. A cowboy dies in the "Ballad of Big", and a snowman in "Snowbound".
