The site is going through some major changes that take time. Be patient and check back in a few days

Yup....just peed my pants!!

As far as keys I would say the intro to the Lamb Lies Down has got to be extremely tough but it's so great.

 

The sheer scope of this project is truly something to admire. Especially as it's free for everyone to enjoy. Even if I didn't already know and Love Genesis the fact that you guys put so much blood sweat and tears into one group would make me curious to dive in and see what all the fuss is about. Kudos to all involved.

That could have been a solution if only you hadn't gone out of your way to make sure we knew you don't care for what we release. Saying "Meh, I only care for one song anyway" makes us not like the attitude and makes people want to get a bit even. It wasn't a matter of "honest mistake", it was a matter of not wanting to hear that you don't care that we work hard on some songs.

 

With that said, please let's end the discussion on that here. It's just depressing that we have spent months working on this and one third of the thread is devoted to this.

 

I am dropping this... I just want to say that I am sorry then. I didn't meant any harm nor didn't meant to offend anyone.. No matter what songs you guys make, I completely respect your work and skill in charting these said songs. Just because I may not care or be interested in playing them, doesn't mean that I don't respect your guys' work. You do a great job and pretty much always do so... I am always happy to see what songs you guys release every friday, even if it is a song I don't care for... Just knowing that you guys do great work is good enough for me to like ya and respect ye' all.

 

So... I am sorry if I did anything that may have been taken in a harmful way; that was not my wish.

I'd never read a single issue of Rolling Stone until last year and I've still know what it was my whole life. It's a staple in rock music. Though I'll admit I probably always thought it was named after the band and didn't realize it didn't have an S and the end. It's like the Nintendo Power of music magazines!

No probs, I was just explaining why the reaction. I'm sure you're gonna love more than a few Genesis songs. ;)

 

I kinda love every song by Genesis. I'll most likely end up getting all 80... So ye'h... (Genesis is one of the few bands/musicians that I truly love a lot. Up there with The Aviators and The Beatles).

I have to give you a big THANK YOU in advance for all the hard work! :)

Like everybody said it's incredible to imagine what it took to create FB on all 80 tracks with the C3 quality in mind.

Can't wait to play all this with my buddies... :dance:

 

And before you play them, you get to convert them all! :D Seriously, brew some coffee because this might take you a while. :v:

The vocals didn't sound like Genesis to me actually and I don't know every album by heart... I never do. I just know the songs themselves.

 

It actually is curious just how Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel *sound* a like but *sing* very differently. When they sing harmonies they are actually pretty similar, but when you listen to Gabriel in early Genesis and Collins in things like Abacab, Invisible Touch, etc. they obviously have a vert different way of singing.

I had no idea it was collins singing on "more fool me" until I read about it on the net. Listening to it now I can certainly hear a difference, but for me it's kind of like technical mistakes in films or television, where you usually don't really notice them until they're pointed out to you. Collins really was the perfect replacement for gabriel after he left.

That and For Absent Friends, the only 2 songs where Phil Collins took lead before Gabriel left. And yes, you have no idea how many people react just like you did. Then again, when a song is sung with some presence, you just can't mix the 2 up. Of course, as you point out, once you know you notice, but otherwise it's difficult. Carpet Crawlers is another good example.

 

I'm surprised nobody started a "guess which songs we'll get that we don't know of yet" thread or discussion. :D

I don't think my poor little flash drive will be able to handle this many songs, but i'll do everything I can to fit all the 70's stuff on there, especially the 2 albums. The lamb and selling england are two of my favorite albums of all time.

 

I was thinking the same thing. Obviously Kingston contracted C3 to create this monstrosity to sell more USB drives. Congrats on your windfall C3. Bunch of sell outs. /sarcasm :D

I can't express enough how excited I am for this pack. I've been playing on PS3 since RB2, mostly drums and vocals. I got a cheap XBox a couple years ago that I barely used, until I discovered customs. My IONs weren't compatible, but I could do vocals.

 

Last year, I replaced my PS3 IONs with a Roland TD-6 e-kit, and a couple months back I bought the XBox Midi Pro Adapter so maybe I can finally play drums on the customs.

 

And then this pack was announced. The band I wanted more than any other, finally comes to Rock Band. 80 SONGS!!!! That's 4 shy of the RB3 disc release.

 

And I finally get sing and play drums to actual, real Genesis songs.

 

Looks like I'm developing a case of the flu next Friday and calling in sick.

I haven't played Rock Band in well over a year, but I still check C3 every week. I actually just made a profile to say that not only am I glad that one of my favourite albums of all time is being brought to Rock Band, but also that I legitimately gasped at The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.

 

Really cool job guys, I love it.

Make it a long lasting case of the flu, that's a ton of songs. :D

 

Probably a good idea. Half the day spent fretting about which song to play first, and then the rest of the day unable to play because I won't be able to see the charts due to my weeping from sheer joy.
