Tony Banks: A Chord Too Far

Album Review

Four-CD box set of Genesis keyboardist’s solo output.

The title is misleading – actually, in his solo work Tony Banks has been unexpectedly sparing with the bombast and overkill. Few opportunities to show off with the filigree and shadow are taken. Mostly his career outside of Genesis has been about the songs, with instrumentation largely in the service of atmosphere, not to demonstrate prowess.
