KC - Beat. I don't like it much, but it's the best on the list.

I saw Tull during their Under Wraps tour. They're always great to see live, even when they put out a dud.

There are parts of Invisible Touch which are amazing, specifically Domino and The Brazilian; Tonight, Tonight, Tonight isn't too bad either.  I really like Side 2 of Momentary Lapse, with Side 1 being just ok.  Beat is a decent enough album but my least favorite from the 80's trilogy, although Neal and Jack and Me is one of my favorite Belew-era songs. 
 
In the Hot Seat and Open Your Eyes make very nice beer coasters and also double as frisbees/throwing weapons when the need arises. 
 
Tough choice really but I'm going to go with Lapse because while IT reaches some incredible heights it also reaches some incredible lows, Lapse on the other hand has some great music and some ok music, but nothing absolutely terrible.  Beat has nothing too bad, but aside from the song I mentioned has nothing that really knocks me out either. 
 
Oh and aside from the dreadful "Lap of Luxury" I've not heard anything off of Under Wraps and it will probably remain that way.

Beat is a good album, but I find myself listening to Momentary Lapse of Reason a lot more.

Invisible Touch, which is quite a good pop album, with some nice prog tendencies at some places.

I never noticed that till now, I'll blame it on texting. Apparently no one likes that album anyway so who cares.LOL
Truedats !!  Only the opening tune (in 9/8 time) was enjoyable, and perhaps the luke-warm rendition of Pictures at an Exhibition - the rest is bland and uninspired to my ears. Very disappointing after the very good 'Black Moon' album.

Those were the lowest rated albums when I made the poll.

Well, for me Genesis worst album would be Abacab, I really didn't find anything enjoyable on that one, except for Dodo. Invisibla touch hade some few (pop) songs that I really liked, and even some that have some prog on them. Even Calling all stations had "The Dividing Line", which I liked a lot.

Momentary Lapse of Reason for me, with Invisible Touch as a close second.

I've only heard three of these. Invisible Touch is where Genesis took a turn for the cheesy, and it's pretty mediocre, but I do like "Land of Confusion" and "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" is also okay. A Momentary Lapse of Reason is also fairly mediocre overall, but it does have some decent material on it ("Learning to Fly", "One Slip", "Yet Another Movie"). So I guess I'll go for Beat, which is not mindblowing (certainly the weakest of the 80s album) but rather solid overall.

Beat by light years. The rest of these wouldn't even make a warm fire.
