I'm really sad because I don't really get The Lamb album. And I've tried. Great band all in all, if you count only Peter Gabriel things. Genesis is only Genesis with Gabriel, sorry!

I'm with most of the fans, the Gabriel era is better, (Foxtrot is definitely their best album), but the Collins era had its great albums/songs. The two with Steve Hackett were a good light version of prog rock, and ABACAB and the self titled album are good, but most are just mediocre pop to me.

Worth listening to during the Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett days, but loses its way after that.

Did you know that, according to creationists, Genesis were the first EVER! There weren't, that was Adam & the Ants.

One of my favourite bands, I especially like the albums with Peter Gabriel.
My favourite albums are Selling England By The Pound, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, Nursery Crime and Foxtrot.

From AAL2014 04/10/2015 18:27
It has been stated many times in this thread of comments, but Genesis with the visionary Peter Gabriel fronting the band, could be considered the greatest prog rock band of all time. Their output of consecutive albums, Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot, Selling England, and the Lamb are all creative and wonderful progressive strokes of genius. Though as much as people like to talk about those albums being great because of Gabriel, while they are right, they often neglect to acknowledge the great ensemble of Banks, Hackett, Rutherford, and Collins. Their playing is so experimental, meaningful, and fun on each of those albums.

Their live performances from 1972-1974 are now the stuff of legend. Gabriel led the band with theatrics and makeup and costumes that at the time were outlandish and frowned upon by his own bandmates, but now, looking back, he influenced each generation after him with those theatrics.

Post Gabriel, like for many, is the path less taken for me. I praise the band for what they were able to accomplish commercially while still having a great sense of musicality. Songs like Mama, Abacab, Turn it on Again, Land of Confusion, That's All, and Follow You Follow Me are all very well written, enjoyable songs.

For the Gabriel era I would give at least a 90/100, but the inconsistency of the mainstream years brings the overall score down a bit. Genesis is still one of the greatest rock artists of all time.
