Lots of Hackett; Supernatural Anesthetist, the lead in Anyway, and the lead in The Lamia are some of the most precious things to me. Also, what is The Waiting Room without the wailing guitar? The third side alone (my favorite side) spotlights more guitar than all of SEBTP, although Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and After the Ordeal are shear genius indeed. At the same time, not much guitar on Cinema Show other than some rhythm guitar that I believe Rutherford played.

The Lamb. It has darkness. It has narrative and continuity. It has more odd instrumental stuff. It has more bite. It's the best album ever.

As a casual Genesis fan I voted for "Lamb".

I never understood how people rate SEBTP above Nursery Cryme, Foxtrot and (of course TLLDOB.) It's a fine record but The Lamb is perfection. It is, in fact, my second favorite album ever (just behind Tales From Topographic Oceans.)

It's almost exactly the opposite for me... it's SEBTP, Foxtrot, Lamb, and then Nursery Cryme...

Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.
