If you're going to apply the standard of greatness, it has to be Wind and Wuthering for me.  After Hackett left all hope was lost.   Not that I don't like Three or Duke or even Abacab for that matter.  I think they are good albums but not great albums.  Big smile  The remainders just make me sad.... Cry

For me A Trick Of The Tale was the last great one, but the self titled one was the last really good one.

It has to be Duke.  They kept the prog aspect with a whole new sound that just clicked.  
The Self-titled album could have been it for me if not for one or two songs.

And then there were three.

I think this album qualifies as great, in fact burning rope might be my favorite Genesis song apart from Firth and Supper.

The greatest Genesis albums of all times are Foxtrot, Selling England..., The Lamb Lies on Broadway.

The LAST greatest album are Wind & Whutering and ... And thEN tHERE wERE tHREE.

Outside prog rock, speaking of "plain" pop-rock, a very good album by Genesis is We Can'T Dance.

Callig All Stations is too dark, not very digestible, very near to industrial rock...

Genesis were ALWAYS great during Peter Gabriel's era, and they stayed accettable till Hackett left the group. Afterwards, you can talk no more about "a progressive rock band", they became in fact poppy.

He somehow always finds a picture with a duck in it, that's relevant to the thread at hand..  It's like a special talent he has.

This is a very good reflexion, and I agree completely. 

For me is We can't dance. I like CAS, and Banks and Rutherford always were the Genesis musical engine, but without the arrengers masters, simply they couldn't do it. And Collins really knows how to take some Banks or Rutherford creation and transforms it in something completely superior. When the guy was gone...
