Do any Genesis fans hear know why there are so many different sets of lyrics to The Knife? Did they change it to make it more up to date, or...?

The Knife actually started out as a short demo, and grew in size until Trespass. The 1st box set, Archive I, has a great early version, different from the countless edited versions.

Is it just me, or do Genesis songs just tend to be...really weird?

It's you.

Personally, I think Foo Fighters songs are wierd. Does that mean they are? Certainly not.

If you're a fan of FM Radio Pop/Hits, then Genesis is probably not for you.

I hear Genesis often on FM radio, and they would certainly fit into the "Pop" category (although that category is just as broad as "Rock").

However, I must say, their music does have a lot of New Wave 80's to it, however it's often a lot slower, and the vocals are (while still a hint of a typical 80's singer) almost...maybe darker is a fitting word?

Either way, the music is kind of unconventional (i.e. weird).

Well, if you're talking Phil Collins / Invisible Touch Genesis, then yes, they're Pop. And wierd too, I guess.

I was talking about the majority of the band's career, mainly the 70's. It is in no way Pop. Quite creative and very organ friendly. I belive the term thrown around most is "Progressive", which by definition, can mean a variety of styles.

By the mid 80's they had started to fade into Pop oblivion, while Peter Gabriel has continued to put out quality.
