I enjoyed that track, thanks for sharing Graham! My journey hasn't taken me into the realms of Genesis yet. Embarrassed But which era is the best, Peter Gabriel or Phil Collins? And did the sound change drastically? I only know a few from the Collins era.

Hi Tim,
Regarding the 'best' Genesis era, it's probably down to personal preference, but If you're keen
on the 80's albums you might be in for a little shock listening to the Gabriel era LPs. They are
very different & can take a few listens to 'get into'.
'Selling England by the pound' (how prescient!) from 1973 is often considered their best Gabriel
album & is a delight. 
'Trick of the Tail' & 'Wind & Wuthering' are the the first albums without Gabriel & are excellent
& not too dissimilar to previous albums. 
'And Then There Were Three' is much more 'commercial' but has some strong songs.
Personally, from 'Duke' onwards they lost it.

Elevator, Accession, Majestic, Reflex M, Solo ULDE, CuSat & Lautus.

Agreed.

I agree too but others may flay me for adding that IMO The Lamb Lies Down belongs in the latter category - overblown & pompous (excepting Carpet Crawlers & Counting Out Time which are wonderful).

Also, on a sidenote IMO Counting Out Time sounds much more like later pop era Genesis than anything else in the PG years. Even has Phil singing :)

I think to understand "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" one needs to have heard "From Genesis to Revelation". After that most will probably agree even more with Andrew Wink
