Abacab is the 11th studio album by British band Genesis. Once again the chart topping album "Abacab" features the deadly trio of Phil Collins, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford at their commercial zenith. Although not a singles band, Genesis still kept a healthy line of hits rolling (especially in the US) with releases like solid rocking "Keep It Dark," the Earth, Wind & Fire assisted "No Reply At All," the pounding title track "Abacab," and the atmospheric "Man in the Corner."

Abacab would become Genesis' best-selling album in the US so far, selling 2 million units in the process before future albums Genesis, Invisible Touch, and We Can't Dance cleaned-up throughout the rest of the '80s and the early '90s. The sound is more synth-oriented but sparingly arranged, with less of a dense texture than previous albums. The result has been called art rock.

Genesis have always been known for their sense of spectacle and their groundbreaking live shows, as much as their ambitious studio albums like the evergreen Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England by the Pound, and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Over the last four decades, the group has sold 150 million albums worldwide and has influenced the likes of Elbow, Flaming Lips, and Jeff Buckley.

...truly modern art rock, their last album that could bear that tag comfortably
