    Not that you'll get me to admit to it in person, but yes I do like Genesis. I'm not sure whether it's Peter Gabriel's Genesis or Phil Collins' Genesis but all the same it's all good

    All I will say to this is I've been there myself not so long ago and what ever decision you make you will in the end regret it, I do and its more than just when the pay slip arrives and then the end of month / start of month outgoings all fly out and I look at the moths left in my bank account, everytime the moaning starts and nagging I think WHY!

    Ive done it three times now been for and offered them, and thought long and hard, one time I didnt like the firm and people i would be working with so didnt really mind turning that one down, just would have been glad to have been out of hte place I was working in, the other times, its probably because im leaving my comfort zone as it were, so feel like :S do I really want to go, yes is the answer and I need to go for my health probably this time, but think hard, and if in doubt, and there is nothing that you have found to be bad about the new job, then take it.

    Oh as for Genesis, I like them and Pink Floyd as well

    If you want to add some more random stuff to the list of bands (just to go even more off topic) try R.E.M, The Levellers and Wolfstone.

    Getting back to the OP - yes another old fart - late but got here eventually :P

    Where do you want to be in 5 - 10 years time? Can you get there in your current post? Would a couple of years stress be worth it if you could achieve your aims?

    As for the financial side - would the extra money be used up in travel costs, go to the taxman or both?

    if you don't like either still that's fine it's you're preference.

    But the late 60's early 70's prog rock sound with gabriel on vocals and collins on drums (where he belonged) is very different from the 80's genesis with Collins on lead vocals.

    I personally love the gabriel-era genesis...'i know what i like' and The Music box set are just fantastic.

    Genesis were the best band of all time at their peak.
    I don't mind collins singing the earlier stuff
    'Seconds Out' is a brilliant live album - 'Carpet Crawl' on it is def the best version (I have 4).
    Saw them 3 times over the years. Once in Birmingham when Prince Charles was there!
    Love Floyd too and Purple.
    So, Joedetic - they are retro hugs - no wonder they are so good!
    I do like new stuff too - honest!

    tbh i don't mind collins singing the early stuff either - but the songs just aren't the same without gabriels distinctive voice. Plus early genesis performances were as much about gabriels performance and outfits on stage aswell as the quality of the music.

    But Collin's songs were mainly about his X Wife !!!!
    Move on Phil !!
    Anyway - how dare you lot hijack my thread about me either staying in my current job or moving on.....

    If you are gonna talk about 'proper' music, at least have the intelligence to talk about someone like Miles Davis, Bob James, Lalo Schifrin or Hancock.....
