Phil Collins
Phil Collins is the former singer/drummer/songwriter/frontman for Genesis.
Unfortunately most of his solo material is even more pop oriented than even later day Genesis.

Phil Collins-Face Value (Atlantic)

1."In the Air Tonight" (5:32)
2."This Must Be Love" (3:53)
3."Behind the Lines" (3:53)
4."The Roof is Leaking" (3:16)
5."Droned"-instrumental (2:55)
6."Hand in Hand"-instrumental (5:12)
7."I Missed Again" (3:41)
8."You Know What I Mean" (2:33)
9."Thunder and Lightning" (4:12)
10."I'm Not Moving" (2:33)
11."If Leaving Me is Easy" (4:54)
12."Tomorrow Never Knows" (4:46)

This is a great album for late nights with the wife, If ya know what I mean. Being the huge Genesis fan I was/am, I loved this album when it came out. Still like it today, but mostly for the reason I listed at the beginning of this paragraph. "Behind the Lines" is a jazzy version of the Genesis song, and "Tomorrow Never Knows" is a real psychedelic Beatles tune. (Trouble also does a mean version of that song.)

Phil Collins- ...But Seriously (Atlantic)

1. "Hang In Long Enough" (4:44)
2. "That's Just The Way It Is" (5:20)
3. "Do You Remember?" (4:36)
4. "Something Happened On The Way To Heaven" (4:52)
5. "Colours" (8:51)
6. "I Wish It Would Rain Down" (5:28)
7. "Another Day In Paradise" (5:22)
8. "Heat On The Sheet (3:51)
9. "All Of My Life" (5:36)
10."Saturday Night And Sunday Morning (1:26)
11. "Father To Son" (3:28)
12. "Find A Way To My Heart" (6:08)

Uh, Top 40 dribble from a man capable of much better. Found it used cheap, thought I'd give it a try as I really like the first solo disc. This one isn't as good, although it was a big seller for Phil. This chart-topping album contains five that made it in the top 5 and pushed this album to platinum sucess. ("Another Day in Paradise, " "I Wish It Would Rain Down, " "Do You Remember?, " and "Something Happened on the Way to Heaven, ")
