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.

Great band, but the 2007 remasters of their work are just terrible.

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.
