Tony Banks founded Genesis with Charterhouse classmates Mike Rutherford, Peter Gabriel, Anthony Phillips, and others. His solo works meander from albums that sound like whatever Genesis were doing at a similar time (A Curious Feeling, The Fugitive, Bankstatement, Still, Strictly Incognito) to film soundtracks (Soundtracks, The Wicked Lady).

Album · 1978 · 11 Songs. A Curious Feeling Tony Banks.

A Curious Feeling is the début solo album from Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks. Recorded at ABBA's Polar Music Studios during a brief Genesis hiatus, it was released in 1979 on Charisma Records and is one of only two of Banks' solo albums to have entered the UK Albums Chart, reaching 21 and staying on the chart for five weeks.

Tony Banks' first solo album borrowed faint elements of Genesis' early progressive sound, making his debut release the strongest in his catalog. Solid keyboard movements lend themselves to mystic, fantasy-like excursions found in tracks such as "From the Undertow," "Somebody Else's Dream," and "The Waters of Lethe," one of the album's strongest cuts. Later efforts from Banks began to show a drift toward commercial pop, much like Genesis' material, making A Curious Feeling and, to a lesser extent, 1983's The Fugitive his most compelling work. 1 From the Undertow Tony Banks 2:41.

Tony Banks: A Curious Feeling by Glenn Astarita, published on July 16, 2016. A Curious Feeling was released in 1979 and marks Banks' debut solo venture. But if I didn't know any better, I'd think it would be a recently produced album due to Nick Davis' extraordinary re-mix processes, including the immaculate DVD audio disc. As former Genesis concert drummer Chester Thompson keeps the train a rolling along with vocalist Kim Beacon's radiant pop-rock vocals. Otherwise, Banks' solo career fell a bit under the radar for me back in the day, yet his melding of symphonic keys and melodic overtones with intermittent sojourns into phantasmagorical.

Loosely based around Daniel Keyes 1959 short story "Flowers For Algernon", Tony Banks' "A Curious Feeling" is built largely around Banks' virtuoso like keyboard playing and Genesis like arrangements. The most interesting thing about "A Curious Feeling" is that although credited solely to Tony Banks, Banks actually does not sing a word on the album; instead it is String Driven Thing's frontman Kim Beacon. While Kim Beacon has a lovely voice for Banks' progressive leaning compositions, the album contains somewhat of an identity disorder with the inclusion of a vocalist on an album credited to a completely different person.The actual music sound like it could fit comfortably on Genesis' "Wind and Wuthering" or 1978's "...And Then There Were Three...". The lead single, "For A While", is breezy, AOR ready mellow number, with Beacon's ethereal vocals floating in an out of Banks' keyboard pastiche. All in all, "A Curios Feeling", while not the strongest album, does have plenty to offer in the way of prog and pop. Kim Beacon's vocals float, Chester Thompson's drums skitter and skatter, and Tony Banks' keyboards provide the perfect stomping ground for all of this music.Final Rating-6/10Stand-Out Tracks- "From The Undertow", "You" and "For A While"
First of all, I would like to praise Tony Banks for his brilliant keyboard skills and excellent musicianship. His efforts as heard on Genesis' and his own solo records shows the tremendous skill he is capable of. One of these efforts shows him at his best while the other undermines his brilliance. The former is Genesis. Most of Tony Banks's solo albums sought to reproduce the success he made in Genesis, forgoing the progressive characteristic his songs retained well after Genesis became reclassified as a pop band. A Curious Feeling is not one of those albums, being the most progressive album he made, at least of the ones before his symphonic records, but it really misses the sound of his records.A Curious Feeling follows a concept similar to the book Flowers for Algernon, a good starting point and similarity with Mike Rutherford's contemporary solo record Smallcreep's Day (which was also produced by David Hentschel at Polar Studios). However, on the record, the concept is taken with the story removed, the environment sterilized. The musicianship shows off on most of the tracks, with You, The Waters of Lethe, Forever Morning, and Somebody Else's Dream particularly, all exemplified by Banks's impressive keyboard playing. Kim Beacon's voice, while not the greatest, is a fitting contribution to this record. What this album really lacks is a solid concept that fails to come through as clearly as it would have with the original story followed. While Banks' prominence on keyboards is exemplified, his skill on the guitars or other instruments makes it more solo than I would wish. I would recommend this to the progressive-era fans considering this is Banks' most progressive records, or simply there is no other way to introduce them. Pop fans, go for the later albums.
