3 stars So we come to the Genesis double album, now obvously the first thing that would come to your mind is 'mann, thats a lot of Genesis for its own good' but of course is it any good? Well yes, actually, the only thing i have against this album really is there is a few filler sounding songs on here, that and its just too long. The obvous great songs include the title track THE LAMB LIES DOWN ON BROADWAY, the epic IN THE CAGE, BACK IN NYC and the singles COUNTING OUT TIME and THE CARPET fact the entire first cd is fantastic, its the second one that it kinda goes downhill for me. There are a few good songs on the second part but a lot of it was just in one ear out the other, like there was no real point for a lot of the album, all in all its not terrible...its just not that great either, but it is still Genesis;

The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway - 10/10 Fly on a Windshield -7/10 Broadway Melody of 1974- 8/10 Cuckoo Cocoon - 7/10 In the Cage - 10/10 The Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging - 7/10 Back in N.Y.C. - 9/10 Hairless Heart - 7/10 Counting Out Time - 10/10 The Carpet Crawlers - 10/10 The Chamber of 32 Doors - 8/10

Lillywhite Lilith - 8/10 The Waiting Room - 8/10 Anyway - 7/10 The Supernatural Anaesthetist - 7/10 The Lamia - 6/10 Silent Sorrow in Empty Boats - 7/10 Colony of Slippermen - 8/10 Ravine - 7/10 The Light Dies Down on Broadway - 6/10 Riding the Scree - 7/10 In the Rapids - 7/10 It - 7/10

MY CONCLUSION? its not a bad album, on the other hand its (in my opinion) Gabriel's worst album with the band, very overated but still a decent buy..
