Of those, the least bad one for me is WG. Boy am I glad there weren't more Banks/Collins songs if these were an indication of what they came up with.

I appreciate and partially share the sentiment, although to be fair, Phil wasn't still the full-fledged, accomplished songwriter back then. Personally, as I said, I wished they had explored more the instrumental side of it. Phil, given his love for Weather Report and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, together with his superior musicianship, could have added some very interesting elements to the band, he did occasionally but not as much as I would have liked. I am not always a fan Phil's songwriting, particularly within Genesis but I wish Tony had released the firm grip he had and allowed Phil to take the lead in that department.
