Foxtrot. If the Lamb had been two sides only, then it would have been a damn sight closer.

Well, here's a wrench in the works for you, if we're talking about the original LP releases it's The Lamb. If we're talking about CD releases then Damn I can't decide.But, and here's the crux, if we're talking about the 1970-1975 Remixed Box set then Foxtrot is the clear winner. I have been so absolutely blown away by the remixed editions of 70-75 albums it's like discovering a new band all over. I'll end up sending my original CD's to the local Op-Shop (Sally-Anne,Goodwill) because they may never get played again. Anyone else have these versions and care to share their thoughts?
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

Foxtrot

Foxtrot... probably. Next week I might choose The Lamb.

My fave track on Foxtrot is 'Can Utility and the Coastliners', a miniature masterpiece.

The Lamb is one of the few Genesis albums I can stand with. Well, I mean that I like it, not just can stand.

Foxtrot should be regarded as the NO1 prog album imho. Lamb is an interesting but 'flawed masterpeice'.

Ooofah!! I picked The Lamb.........if you listen to all 4 sides it makes soooo much sense. A lot of times I find myself wandering during Foxtrot...especially side 2. But Watcher is amazing!

Foxtrot, despite Lamb having my favourite Genesis song, In The Cage

Lamb--a masterpiece of prog---Foxtrot is great too, but not as cohesive.
