Quote:Genesis without Peter Gabriel are OK but a bit like a car with no engine. It just coasts downhill and eventually grinds to a halt.

I like the analagy but you missed the bit about the wreckage left at the end (not so sure i agree with them being ok without Gabriel though) Trespass is a stonker, as is 'selling England by the pound'.

and with a title like that... it begged a hijack. Smile

Foxtrot was the pinnacle....

for a car with no engine, Trick of the Tail was pretty OK

BTW, any word of that restaurant owner from Bognor, I heard on the news they'd found a mouse brown overcoat


happy birthday John

Yes 'Wind' and 'Trick' are great albums, no question. However, 'And Then There Were Three' is one of those hidden gems. Those of us who owned it at the beginning remember how good it was. If you haven't had the pleasure, it's a gem!
...and that's from a led zep fan!

Didn't he catch a train.

What about "The Lamb" album
An all time classic, And from the bands best decade by far

i agree definitely the best decade (in fact the only one I listened to LOL)

The "Lamb" was OK -( I took two coachloads of sixth formers to row two of the second night in Liverpool ..) but even then I (and several of my pals) thought that the spark was going,a bit over the top and arty-farty (in fact very much like when Yes did "Topographic oceans").

So, my favourites in order,( just to keep the thread hijack going Wink

Selling England
Nursery Cryme
Trick of the Tail
Wind and Wuthering

and absolute favourite track (though a long concept..) Supper's Ready

lead us to the New Jerusalem

Thanks for the comments guys, I wondered if anyone would pick up on the thread's title Wink them being my fave band and all.

Best album: either Foxtrot or The Lamb
Fave track: The light dies down on Broadway, it has a great atmosphere when played through headphones in a pitch black room, then again most of the early stuff does: Watcher, Stagnation, The Knife, etc...

I could go on for ever...

Off to the footy in a minute, come on you Blue boys.
