3 stars Ah, the Lamb Lies Down of Broadway. To some, it's the magnum opus of Genesis, the ultimate culmination of everything they have done up to this point, and to others, it's too indulgent and pretentious. My opinion lies somewhere in the middle. There are some very nice songs to be seen here- In the Cage and the title track some to mind: the former being a lot like all the great 7-9 minute songs before it, which are my favorites of Genesis; songs like The Knife, Return of the Giant Hogweed, and Dancing with the Moonlit Knight: and the latter being a very cathcy, accessible, yet ever so proggy song. The album's music is very high quality, and I don't have much to say about it. However, this album is simply too much for me, being 90 minutes long. Plus, the fourth side leaves something to be desired in my opinion- I understand that Genesis is art-rock and all that, but Ravine is just two minutes of windy noises- seriously? Anyway, three stars- good, but not great.
