Just a reminder that my vote didn't change the count. I tried to vote for Phaedra but it probably doesn't matter at this point.

Besides which Melt is nothing like Genesis.  It's the very antithesis of Genesis  - abrasive, hard and not very melodic on the whole.  Brilliant album.

Oh c'mon, I know you have a selective deafness for all things Genesis-related but Phaedra really does not have any sort of clear quality edge over PG 3. Much as Biko is a bit wretchedly overwrought, there's a hell of a lot of trail being blazed on this one. Phaedra's a fine album, not as biting as Rubycon and not doing as much stuff as dynamically as PG 3, though.

Peter Gabriel 3 Melt.

When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.

This is such an apples and oranges comparison! I voted for PG3 because it was a milestone in showing that Prog does not necessarily equal inaccessible music (not that there's anything wrong with inaccessible music).

hmmm.. I know Raff has a vote (nearly all of them) still out there.  I wonder how she'll vote. She loves PG.. but perhaps I can convince her a K.C. - T.D. vote swap. Of course I've already done my part.. now it is up to her LOL
