I'm listening to it for the first time right now -- as SOON as I read your comment about the mention of the lizards, that lyric came on.

I love these weird little moments.

fydo1974 Personally, I thought "Watcher in the Skies" was fantastic! It's lyrical references to lizards shedding their tales brought Gamehenge to mind. I hope it ends up in regular rotation. :)

Lemuria Phish deserves kudos for successfully tackling two tricky songs, but Trey's vocals on NRaR didn't do justice to the song, the inductees, the event, the venues, or the fans. ;)

I've been a Genesis fanatic since long before I even knew Phish existed, so the RRHoF induction was sort of like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup moment for me - two great bands that sound great together. Watcher is a fantastic song and they do a nice job with it, even if it is a little stiff. I don't like to acknowledge any Genesis music past Duke, so No Reply at All holds no interest for me and I admit I have never listened to it. Still, the Watcher is well worth a listen, and if you like what you hear you should dig into Genesis' back catalogue; there's a hell of a lot more where that came from.
