Gabriel's last or Collins first. Which Genesis do you like better?

Love disc one of The Lamb... In the Cage is the highlight for me. Disc two does not maintain the quality... The Waiting Room, really? Not a song, just noise. Several other songs on disc two seem like filler to me.

Trick on the other hand has no skipper tracks, all tracks are superb. Therefore, my vote is for Trick.

It's Trick'. The band had much to prove after Gabriel's exit, and they proved it well. Sure, 'Broadway was a little spotty in places, but it's still a generally good listen. Disagree with you about The Waiting Room. It added some depth to the proceedings at hand.

Probably my two favorite Genesis albums.  Going to go with TOTT but Lamb is right behind it.

Trick is the most consistent prog album I can think of, every track is as good as the last in my mind. Lamb is also fantastic. Went with trick.

Proved they could hold their own and they came back with a more refined sound.

Lamb is a prog masterpiece---a 2 disc epic concept album that takes you on a journey. Peter still loves it.
 Trick is a great single disc. Hard to compare a long work from a short work. A single disc is easier to be perfect. So can't vote.

Maybe it's heresy, but I'd rather listen to Trick.

The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is my favourite Genesis album. I enjoy Trick..., but it never had nearly as big an effect on me. Hearing The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway at an after show, closing party at a playhouse I worked for played a significant part in me really delving into Prog. I wouldn't discover what it was for quite some time. "Hairless Heart", in particular, made my hairy heart-hairs stand on end.
This post goes to eleven.

Trick for me...
He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me -- John Barrymore

Trick. The Lamb is great sides 1 and 2, but 3 and 4 descend into mythological gobbledygook.

Neither one particularly, really. There are some songs I like a lot on both, but many others I don't really care for.

I feel the same. I like Trick a lot, but The Lamb is certainly my favorite of the two.

Agree, and the word gobbledygook sums it up perfectly.
