Both are pretty meh to worse than meh.

I suppose PG on the strength of Melt and Passion, whereas only Duke is notable from Genesis' discog after that.

So for me.
 
I vastly prefer Gabriel's work to that of Genesis in the 80s.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

Duke and Genesis S/T are by far my two favs of the bunch. Never could get into gabriel's solo stuff for some reason. I picked Duke.

Peter Gabriel produced better albums in the 80s and 90s than Genesis. They certainly had greater depth and were more meaningful. The three in a row in the 80s Melt, Security and So are incredible. I've always considered Melt and So as two of the best albums of the 80s.

Genesis needs to make a come-back here. If they could also do that literally with some new music and a tour, with Steve Hackett and Peter Gabriel, that would be cool too.

I'm surprised at how little recognition the Mama album gets on here. I think it's a really great pop album.

I've always been a fan of Security (my first Gabriel or Genesis album actually), so I'll go with that. The first tune still gives me goosebumps.

Gabriel's material was better than Genesis' throughout this period, PG4 is my favourite of his.
