Biography

Biography by Bruce Eder & Geoff Orens

Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks has made several stabs at a solo career since 1978, writing and recording in various styles and occasionally under different group names. However, none of his attempts have been very commercially successful, a sore point for the man many deem responsible for a large portion of the Genesis sound. For many observers, ...

Bow before the "Lord of Keyboard"!

The answer seems to be that it could be pretty good but would still have its clunkers.

I value interesting music that is played and recorded well.

If you ever - even only once - heard a classic Tony Banks keyboard solo like the ones he nailed on Genesis songs such as "The Cinema Show", "The Colony of Slippermen" or "Duke's Travels" (but to pick a few cherries from his vast orchard), you'd be tempted to seek out ALL of his solo works in search of more keyboard nirvana....and you might end up being surprisingly disappointed. At least I was.

I mean, I actually like most of his solo albums, but I'm really amazed at how little they resemble the sound of Genesis (with the exception of his first album, "A Curious Feeling"). But there are always hints of Banks' genius and signature keyboard styling in every one of his albums (e.g., listen to "An Island in the Darkness" on his "Strictly, Inc." cd), even though he took a decidedly "poppier" route in many of the songs.

I think "Still" contains some of his proggiest sounding songs outside of Genesis, with lots of great keys and his typical chord changes in some of the songs. Yes, there is certainly a lot of "pop" sound here too, but they are all very good songs done well.

I'm going to limit my review here to just two songs on the second half of the album, since many of the reviews have already done a great job of noting the overall flavor of the cd, and also because these two songs just happen to be my favorites on the cd - maybe my favorites of Banks entire solo output.

"Another Murder of a Day" is just great - written in the classic Genesis style with Fish's Gabriel-like vocals, the music moving through a few different great themes, and circling back to the original keyboard lick that began the song. The lyrics are moving, the mood transitions are perfect, and the performance is flawless.

Y'know, I've never been a big Pop music fan, but Tony Banks is one exception. I like the rhythm, the odd time signatures, and just about everything else. But HOLY HAVE SOME SINGERS BATMAN!!! Tony used five singers on this album, my favorites being Fish (vocals sound like a cross between Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins) and Jayney Klimek (whatever happened to her anyway?), for Tony captured the strong points of both singers in the few tracks they sang vocals for. This CD has a variety of different types of tracks for the entertained listener, with several pop songs (Red Day on Blue Street, Hero for an Hour), a killer Piano Ballad (Still it Takes Me By Surprise), and you can't have a Tony Banks CD without at least one Genesis-esk song (Another Murder of a Day). So eat it up, 'cause this is the best album to start a new Tony Banks fan.

Anyone who became a fan of progressive rock in the 80's couldn't help but notice the similarity of Marillion's style to that of Late Gabriel/Early Collins era Genesis. And many of us asked, "What would it be like if Fish joined Genesis?" Well, Tony Banks and Fish were kind enough to provide us with some answers to that question, both on this album ("Pretty Angel Face", "Another Murder of a Day") and another song on the "Soundtracks" album ("Short Cut to Somewhere"). The answer seems to be that it could be pretty good but would still have its clunkers. "Another Murder..." could have been a classic for either group, and "Short Cut..." showed some pop potential, but "Pretty Angel Face" just sort of drags, as Tony is wont to do in his worse moments.
But this album is more than just Tony and Fish. Some amazingly good material can be found here in "Red Day on Blue Street" (a musical satire that could apply to any election you've ever seen), and "Back to Back" (uptempo, modern pop that expresses the classic old-timer's lament: "Better in my day, I hear everybody say... but then, they'll still be saying that tomorrow."). "The Gift" and "I Wanna Change the Score" round out the best of the album's tracks with catchy melodies and relevant lyrics.
Regrettably, I can see why Tony Banks never became a pop success: although he's an excellent musician, his themes are just too intelligent for a pop audience. It's a shame that no radio station has ever introduced a "Thinking Person's Pop" format, because Banks' music would be all over its playlists.

This is one of my favorite albums, and one of the most underrated among Genesis fans.
I find this composer receives too much criticism for the record because it represents one of his most obvious attempts at a blatant pop style. But Tony Banks has always written unconventional and distinctive pop songs with quirky rhythm tracks and harmonic progressions that stand out so noticably. At the same time, he layers his sounds and rhythms so effectively to create a more subtle effect in the structure of the work. Sophisticated modulations and odd time signatures are hardly grating on the ear. Mr. Banks successfully manages to carve out little gems that are far superior to any song that gets airplay today, and I find that his shorter, more direct songs can be far more emotional than his larger epics.

Since being in the music business almost 35 years, the dominant force of Genesis has done it all; from writing film scores to creating some of the most spectacular and breathtaking soundscapes in the history of rock music. Banks continues his remarkable musical journey on the 1991 release "Still". In order to create the perfect musical landscape, Tony has a "cast of thousands" performing vocal duties here. Nik Kershaw starts things off with the upstart "Red Day On Blue Street" - which describes the British political scene in fine lyrical form. Kershaw also lends vocals on another track; the upbeat "I Wanna Change The Score", which was co-written by Kershaw with Banks. Also joining Tony on board, is his friend (from Marillion) Fish, who performs on tracks such as the dark & decadent "Angel Face" and on the eventful "Another Murder Of A Day". Jayney Klimek is present on two vocals as well: on the hauntingly quiet "Water Out Of Wine" & on the aerobically upbeat "Back To Back", which has a similar feel to "Queen Of Darkness" - a track which was featured on Banks' previous effort, the 1989 release "Bankstatement", also featuring Alistair Gordon on vocals, as well as Klimek. Andy Taylor (no, not the Taylor from Duran Duran), is the featured vocalist on selections such as "The Gift" and on "Still It Takes Me By Surprise". Mr. Banks even gets into the singing act (no surprise), as his vocalization on his lone vocal, titled "Hero For An Hour", is both tolerable and cute on all fronts. This number's storyline features a fairy tale-like symposium, which is "front page news" in any lyrical buff's "scrapbook" of sorts.Read more ›
