Flame me if you will, but I refuse to accept the initial premise.

lol

Mentally, I have always paired Foxtrot and Selling England.

The last album they did without synths and the first one they did with them.

Two of the finest albums any band has ever done in succession.

The one before and the one after weren't too shabby either. But those two, man. Those two...

(...all that bloviating, and I went with the earlier two, lol...)

Perhaps finding the happy medium is harder than we know.

Although I really like the early Genesis albums right before SEBTP I voted for SEBTP and Lamb. One of the factors for me is the presence of synths on those albums. For whatever reason Tony Banks never got around to purchasing a synthesizer until 1973 so those early ones were a little bit behind the game in the technology department for the time(although still very good).

I need that meme of the guy sweating over two buttons. I feel that Crymes is such a close second to my favorite, Selling. But I don't want to vote against Crymes either. 

And it bolstered by Foxtrot as opposed to Lamb..., but it would be the first time in any poll where I clicked a button other than one for Selling....

Nursery Fox - though you could have paired Trespass with either of those and it would still get my vote.

Nursery Cryme vs the other three. Still Nursery Cryme for me.

Foxtrot is my favorite Genesis album, but I have to pick the other pairing because I prefer those two as a team vs Foxtrot and NC.

Selling England and Lamb are really perfect---the other two have a few songs on each that are not great but it may have to do a lot with the production value.

Foxtrot+Nursery Cryme. There's too much wasted space on Lamb and SEbtP.

Tough one. Selling England is my favourite of the lot, but The Lamb is my least favourite. On the other hand, Foxtrot has Supper's Ready. Still, I guess the first option.

Agree, The Lamb is overrated.

Voted for Lamb & SEBTP
Both are ahead of Foxtrot & Nursery for me.
