Abacab is the eleventh studio album by the British rock band Genesis.
It was released on September 14,1981 on the Atlantic label,only in Japan this appeared as a promo version on the vertigo label.
Abacab is the stylistic transition phase in the works of Genesis.
After Steve Hackett left the band in 1977,the three remaining Genesis members Phil Collins,Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks turned to more commercial rock music.
According to Mike Rutherford,the name Abacab came from the structure of an early version of the song of the same name. Its arrangement consisted of three parts, which were labeled a, b and c.Since the band members could not think of a suitable title for album and song,they put the sequence a-b-a-c-a-b together to form an artificial word.
