    The Prince of Pop. Collins knows how to write a song with a good hook all the while having intelligent lyrics for the most part. He was also a heck of a drummer.

    Even if you don't appreciate pop music, you should at least respect his ability as a master songwriter.

    As an enormous Genesis fan, I want to just tell you to buy the entire discography. Plus, in this day and age, you can hear everything on Youtube. However, if you want to go the compilation route, get this one.

    He's not bad. Got way overexposed in the late 80s to the point where everyone started hating him, I don't really care for his voice, but a good songwriter. Much better musician than people commonly give him credit for.

    Phil Collins dont take any shit. Whether he is managing a motel, driving a cab, hustling burgers ,protecting his son or grabbing some peanut butter and jam sammiches.

    the world lost a great man when he passed.

    Rain down on me is one of the best songs ever made and motherfucking Clapton is on it. Phil has so many good songs Ive lost count so piss on the haters they dont know what real music is. Genesis got rid of the weirdo singer they had and got Phil and did better with him.

    The definitely had a much different sound after he left, but Peter Gabriel is great on his own.

    take me home, goes hard as hell. love that song. There's a whole list of 80s artists that I'm pretty sure were hated for their looks or hair, certainly not talent (Collins, Michael Bolton, Richard marx, etc..)

    Genesis was one of the great early progressive rock bands, so in that sense, Collins is legendary.

    Not personally a fan of any of his pop music though, granted some of the earlier work was catchy.
