Phil Collins is an amazing song-writter, singer and musician. One thing I like from him is that his look is not the kind of look you can expect from a pop idol, he looks like any other man you can see on the street.

The very existence of this thread makes me want to retch heartily from the pit of my stomach. It makes me think I must have a very different set of values to some of the posters in this little corner of the web.

Having said that, Against All Odds is a tremendous song (utterly destroyed by Pariah Carey's oh-so-sincere banshee wailing on her cover version) and the big drum fill on In The Air Tonight is a classic early 1980s moment, much like the introduction of the Austin Maestro.

"Against All Odds" is a great song to do on Karaoke. :wink: :shhh:
Although I don't really listen to him, I do think that Phil Collins has one of the most distinct male voices in pop/rock music in the last 40 years, along with Robert Smith from The Cure.

I do know that Neil likes the song Against all odds.

The drum break/roll on "No Time For Tears" is essentially a nod to Phil, nearly identical to In the Air Tonight.

As much as I can't abide him, I have to admit I like some of his more electronic 80's stuff, and some Genesis too.

A girlfriend of mine back in the day, upon hearing the intro to Love Is A Catastrophe commented it was a rip off from Against All Odds intro.

Ah...young,foolish,pretty....wrong.
