Someone did this with a bunch of the Yes albums so I thought we could try it with Genesis. Have at it!

Entangled, especially for that haunting ending.
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

Dance on a volcano but entangled is a close second. After that my favorites are mad man moon and then the rest.

A great Genesis album, with great songs and excellent melodies. It's a hard choice, but I'll vote for ripples, just because of Steve Hackett's great guitar solo.

Love the whole album but chose Mad Man Moon right at this moment---Smile

think it has one of Banks most heart wrenching melodies---and thats saying a lot.

Dance' followed by 'Moon (and the rest of the album including Trick' is damn fine, also).

I really like Entangled and Squonk, but I think Dance on a Volcano is what really made this album a favorite for me from the first listen. It was the sound and delivery, which was a new experience compared to previous albums, harder edged and biting.

"Dance"! But this is one of my three favorite Genesis albums, anyway.

I don't know, something between "Entangled", "Squonk", and the title song... definitley not Dance on a Volcano... nor even Los Endos (even if they are, seemingly, the more popular ones here). I guess Entangled for being the little bit proggier one out of the ones I like.

I love this album. My favourite track is Dance on a Volcano. It's the song that got me into Genesis.

^^^ I agree. I like every track. Even the relatively weak tracks (weak IMO) are better than the weak tracks on W&W and ATTWT. I love the whole package from the artwork to the production and the dreamy storybook feel of the album. A true classic.

I really hate playing favorites.  It's a pointless exercise in my opinion but what the hell.  I'll play the game.
Released date are often when it it impacted you but recorded dates are when it really happened...
