By Neil S. Bowman on May 5, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Second's Out, by Genesis, turned my life around. Don't you just love overenthusiastic statements like that? Well, I remember sneaking into my brother's room when he was out, snatching a copy of Second's Out from his turntable, putting on the headphones, listening to it from start to finish in the dark, while looking out the window waiting for his car to pull back into our driveway, so I'd have enough time to run back into his room (still in the dark) and place it back onto his turntable at exactly the right axis he left it at. If the inside record label was even slightly too much to the right, I was always paranoid that he'd find out I was playing his records again and he'd yell at me! He was 8 years older than me and much bigger! He was an avid prog-rock fan and had dozens of albums, and treated them all like gold.
ELP was my first love and I thought no other band could amaze me so much, until my brother bought Second's Out and I heard it playing in his room all of the time. I was too young and poor at 13 and my mother wouldn't buy albums for me because she thought I'd scratch them all, so I would listen to my brother's.
Second's Out, from the Chester Thompson stick-click count off into Squonk, to the very exhausting end of Los Endos, was nearly a spiritual album for me. It was the first time I heard magic on a record. Like being a child and hearing fairy tales, but now being older and hearing how they would sound. I was unaware of even who Peter Gabriel was, so I had no compunction about calling Phil my favorite singer and the only one for these songs. Today, of course, I could not be more of a Gabriel fan and have seen every tour since the Security tour of 1982-83!
But Phil's smoky voice and warmly passionate delivery was the best voice I'd heard to that date.

Seconds Out is one of the most amazing live albums I've ever heard. And this "Definitive Edition Remaster" edition makes it even better.
This album is, in all respects, perfect. It's equal cannot be found anywhere. Musically, these guys are at the top of their craft. (Particularly with the addition of drummers Chester Thompson and King Crimson/Yes beatmaster Bill Bruford.) Lyrically, this album -- although it borrows heavily from Trick of the Tail -- runs the gamut, going back all the way to "The Musical Box" from Nursery Cryme.
And, glory be!, it features the entire 25-minute epic "Supper's Ready" from Foxtrot. This version, even though Phil Collins is singing it instead of Peter Gabriel, is dramatic, powerful and guaranteed to give you goosebumps.
Speaking of Phil Collins, this live album sounds so much like Peter Gabriel in parts that you'd swear he was still in the band.
So, the good news is this 1977-released 2-CD set is a perfect representation of Genesis at their peak. The recording is flawless. The song selection is impeccable.
Now for the bad news...
This was the last great Genesis album. Shortly after its release, guitarist Steve Hackett left the band, bringing the members of Genesis down to three (hence, the title of their next studio release: And Then There Were Three...). Genesis would never recover from the loss, and would slide inexorably closer to Top 40 Hell with each subsequent release.
If you want a very good representation of what Genesis used to sound like before everyone left and Phil Collins took over, Seconds Out would be a very, very good place to start.

When I first borrowed this album from my friend back in 1978, I really hadn't heard any Genesis yet. They were never on the radio, believe it or not, and they truly were a cult band at the time. I put the first side on the turntable and heard "Squonk." I was blown away. I'd never listened to such music before. It was almost like being deaf and blind your entire life and suddenly you could see and hear! The rest of that first and second side were just as mind blowing. Songs like "Afterglow" and "Carper Crawl" were equally chilling. Then there is the incredible number "Firth of Fifth" where I discovered a new type of guitar playing (by the already recently departed Steve Hackett). All of this with their drummer, Phil Collins, as their lead vocalist, not the incredible Peter Gabriel who left after the "Lamb Lies Down On Broadway." As it turned out, this was their last anonymous effort. About a year or so later, "Duke" came out with "Turn it On Again" and the overplayed "Misunderstanding." They eventually developed into another Fleetwood Mac (in terms of radio overplay). So listen to this album by yourself when you're missing someone or when you just want to get away from it all. You won't believe how great this cd is!

Seconds Out is certainly one of the greatest live albums ever recorded. Recorded primarily during their 1977 tour, This collection captures Genesis at their best..in concert.
A nice mix of songs from their previous six albums are performed here on this sparkling live set. Standouts include I Know What I Like, in which the band sets off a terrific jam, Afterglow, a romantic ballad which sounds even more powerful than it's studio version, The epic Supper's Ready, which is absolutely mindblowing and the explosive finale of Dance On A Volcano/Los Endos.
Phil Collins powerful vocals clearly shows he's perfect for the new sounding Genesis and does an amazing job on the Peter Gabriel songs as well. Tony Banks creates an masterful atmosphere with his keyboard and mellotron playing. Steve Hackett's unique and tasteful guitar playing and Mike Rutherford's bass sound terrific. Touring drummer Chester Thompson is awesome and complements Phil Collins perfectly.
If you're a newcomer to the music of Genesis or only familiar with the 80's Phil Collins era, then Seconds Out should be one of the first albums added to your collection. As both a live album and a solid collection of their 70's songs, Seconds Out is a must have.
