    GENESIS albums - rank by set

    I know the Genesis favorite albums ranking thing has already been done on other threads, but why don't we rank them up by sets this time. Some years back they put out the studio albums in several box sets (excluding the disowned first album that they probably don't have the rights to). They were grouped by years as 1970-75(green box set - 5 albums), 1976-1982(blue box set - 5 albums) and 1983-1998(red box set - 4 albums). They also put out a box set for the live albums (black box set). Here's how I rank them by sets:

    BOX SET 1970-!975

    1) Selling England By The Pound
    2) Lamb
    3) Trespass
    4) Foxtrot
    5) Nursery Cryme
    6) From Genesis To Revelation (not part of the box set, no, but hey...)

    BOX SET 1976-1982

    1) Wind & Wuthering
    2) Abacab
    3) Duke
    4) And Then They Were Three
    5) Trick Of The Tale

    spot 4 & 5 are evenly tied for me and could easily switch places. Today, it's Three at 4 and Trick at 5.

    BOX SET 1983 - 1998

    1) We Can't Dance
    2) Invisible Touch
    3) Genesis/Shapes
    4) Calling All Stations

    LIVE BOX SET 1973-1992

    1) Seconds Out
    2) Three Sides Live
    3) Live At The Rainbow
    4) The Way We Walk
    5) Genesis Live

    the live set is a little harder to rank, and could easily be 100% different tomorrow.

    How do you rank 'em by groups?

            I truncated the live ranking so that it only included the three live albums I have. I counted The Way We Walk: The Shorts and The Way We Walk: The Longs as one album as that seemed to be what was done in the original post (Though the OP may have just meant one of them or the other, it wasn't specified).
            "A lot of the heavier conversations I was having with Chris toward the end were about his desire for this thing to go forward. He kept reiterating that to me. [...] He kept telling me, 'No matter what happens, Yes needs to continue moving forward and make great music. So promise me that that's something you want to do.'. And I have to keep making music. It's just what I do. [...] I'm a fan of the band and I want to see it thrive and that means new music." -Billy Sherwood

              The original Way We Walk was released as vol.1: the Shorts(1992) and vol. 2: The Longs(1993), but for the box set they put the two together as a double cd set. They also re-sequenced the tracks into the correct running order of the actual concert, and added Turn It On Again. They did leave off Dreaming While You Sleep, but that can be found on the Archive 1976-92 box set from 2000 and on a cd single(Tell Me Why, I think). So, yes, both short and long volumes go together as one live album.
