You can also list the best Peter vocals if you'd like. Personally I'm not a big fan of his voice (my one deterrent of listening to the Gabriel era more often), but perhaps I could be persuaded by good suggestions. wink And also to be fair.


Red Rain for instance? Or if we are only talking Genesis here: The Apocalypse in 9/8th section in Supper`s Ready

Speaking of Phil, I always get goosebumps listening to him singing Afterglow on Three Sides Live. A much more powerful version, than on Seconds Out or even on Wind And Wuthering. But maybe that is just me, feeling that way.

I agree with everything you said, I would add DWTMK which is quite amazing imo, that a Cappella intro never sounded quite the same with Phil live

When it comes to comparing Phil`s and Peter`s voice craft, some wise man`s words come to my mind, I have read somewhere sometime:

Phil`s vocals on Supper`s Ready are better, than Peter`s; but Phil cannot sing it the way Peter does.

the fact that Peter still sings better than ever while Phil cannot anymore


Peter sings better than ever? Really?

I saw him on Later with Jools Holland and was not impressed. I noticed he needed a lot of help from backing singers and has no hope with the high notes.

Phil's voice has got thinner since the '80s, that's true, but I would say Peter's certainly has too.

I've always thought Peter's best vocals ever were on So. He never sounded better before or since.

No, I love them both. They are very different, but both great.

I never thought Peter's forte was his high pitch and he still has he low tones to rely upon, those are imo better than ever...

I agree on the before, not so much on the since

Saw Peter live in concert last Summer. His voice was incredible, high notes and all, for two and a half hours. Maybe he has some off-nights, and I can pick on some of his vocals on some 2007 live recordings I have, but in Camden, NJ in 2011 He was ON. Better than ever, as the man said.
