Genesis & Elp

July 13, 1986

As a long time fan of Genesis and Peter Gabriel, I find a particular statement in Robert Hilburn's interview with Gabriel to be patronizing at best and complete speculation at worst ("Peter Gabriel Post-Amnesty," July 6).

Hilburn says Genesis "is now ridiculed as hopelessly soggy and middlebrow by many of Gabriel's more demanding fans."

As a "demanding fan," I have found all of Genesis' albums to be innovative and richly textured. For example, "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" and "Selling England by the Pound" were a fascinating blend of classical influence with profound, surrealistic lyrics and brilliant musicianship.

It is incomprehensible to me how they could be labeled "middlebrow"!
