5.)Wind and Wuthering
4.)Nursery Cryme
3.)Foxtrot
2.)Trick of the Tail
1.)Selling England by The Pound

I first heard Selling England by the Pound when I was about 12 and have loved it since, it really shaped my love for progressive music though I also love the era when Peter Gabriel just left and Steve Hackett still was in Genesis. 

Ripples has to be one of my favourite Genesis songs ever.

5. Duke
4. Nursery Cryme
3. Selling England by the Pound
2. Seconds Out
1. A Trick of the Tail

I noticed that everyone is listing just studio albums, but to me Seconds Out defined Genesis as one of the greatest bands of all time.

I thought Genesis ended after Wind and Wuthering?
Good one!  Like your order too!  Except "Nursery Cryme" would edge out WaW for the fourth spot for me...

One top five will do just fine:

Nursery
Trespass 
SEBTP
Lamb
Foxtrot

+ Trick... and From Genesis... both have their moments.

Actually, I did my top 100 list on another thread but the post 1978 ones didn't even make my list. The Lamb and Nursery, though, were at the top. I find it intriguing to see how people are ranking the old Genesis albums in different ways.
