  2. The Lamia’s one of the best tracks on The Lamb, and Trick of the Tail would be in my top 5.
    1. The Lamb 2. Selling England 3. Foxtrot 4. Trick of the Tail. Duke


  3. Good to see Duke getting some love!
    Never cared for Lamb, myself, though I know Genesis stalwarts get very upset if it’s aimless lack of focus and purposefully obtuse story are challenged. So I won’t do those things. Otherwise, pretty much as expected I guess. Worth mentioning that Genesis were fabulous live in the 70s – both Live and Seconds Out are terrific documents of great players doing their thing for an audience.
    This is about the 1973 one:

  4. Yeah, sure, “Duke” is better than “The Lamb”…that’s O.K.,, it looks as if it almost didn’t make the list! I’m starting to expect idiotic judgments like that popping up on the net, so I wouldn’t be surprised at that particular degree of stupidity that at this point…I love the way when someone isn’t able to understand something or have enough imagination of their own to derive some meaning from a masterpiece that’s intention is to make you think, it’s looked at as a defect…the idea that life’s ultimate meaning is not necessarily obvious is the beauty of “IT”.
