3 stars "Selling England" and "Foxtrot" being both amazing albums, it's hard to describe "The lamb...". The only thing that comes to mind is : Genesis trying to be something they are not. Don't get me wrong, I learned to enjoy the album more after time but I found that it did not last the test of time very well. Too much filler tracks, Gabriel using harsh vocals with strange just sounds...very awkward coming from these guys. Of course, there are some KILLER tracks like "In The Cage", "Colony Of Slippermen" but for the rest...too much is just like not enough. This album is far more relevant in its live context...on record it's just...bizarre I guess. Still a good record that shows some pretty intense musicianship and songwriting skills. Not for everyone but a very honest effort, above par in most cases. Give it a try!
