I never liked Nursery Crime.
I bought a copy where the hole wasn't centered correctly, creating a headache inducing slow pitch wobble throughout the entire album.
Cargo of diamonds as you are: nothing more valuable, nothing more tough.
She's an equal opportunity offender, a societal wildcard. You can't control her, only hope to contain her, even then she refuses to be possessed. If she were a coin, you would spend her, unwillingly. If she were an animal, you'd free her to the wilderness.
Never has a more devious and difficult poll been devised in the history of mankind. I think "Selling England..." will always take my top spot, but that's really more for nostalgic purposes than anything else. Honestly, they've ALL got plenty to offer.
Yesshows: 3-12-11 (Rite of Spring, Orlando), 7-15-11 (Fly From Here, Orange Beach), 7-28-12 (Fly From Here, St. Augustine)
The poll only allows for 1 and this time I voted for Foxtrot, (I think I may have voted Lamb on a previous poll), mainly on the strength of the incredible Supper's Ready (thats the one that goes head to head with Close To The Edge), and also always get a thrill from Watcher.
Selling England is great, I love Dancing with and Firth of Fifth, but find Epping Forest rather monotonous.
The Lamb is epic, it is of a whole, you really can't break it in to separate tracks, I like to listen to it cover to cover.
So yeah those three are the core for me.
The two 76 releases are cool too and I like the live stuff I've heard from that period as well.
Never have so few, taken so much, from so many, for so long
Without hesitation I voted for "Nursery Cryme". This was my first exposure to Genesis, so this remains special to me. "Wind And Wuthering" is, in my opinion, the best Genesis album without Peter Gabriel.
