Genesis: ...And Then There Were Three (1978)
...And Then There Were Three, so named because of the departure of Steve Hackett, contains a genuine hit single, the first real pop hit from the band. One could probably make the argument that the band was moving into a new phase. After having watched the Genesis interviews that coincided with the box sets releases, it's clear that Phil Collin was not the single motivating factor for the sounds that followed. It's clear that this was a band decision, so all of the people who blame Phil should get a little education.
For me, although it was the band's biggest hit, Follow You Follow Me is the best song on the album.
