The last 30 years Genesis has been a constant factor within the pop-music. During this time, they played in a number of different styles but all symphonic rock. With Peter Gabriel the theatrical, large productions were made. Phil Collins had an influence of more introvert, mainstream rock. Later on the band shifted from these 'difficult' pieces to more melodic, general popmusic. 'The Musical Box' is not only a biography, but also a manual on the Genesis work. It's written by the editor of the fanzine 'The White Room'. Judging from all the material and information in the book, he has done some major research. There are overviews of all the records (lp's, singles and cd's), bandchanges, every concert they played and odd pressings and promo records. Also the solo-carrieres of Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Anthony Phillips are extensively written of.
