It just goes to show that this site is mainly visited by people who are really into music, and not the current pop charts, otherwise rubbish like Invisible Touch would be their highest rated album.

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.
