5 stars Well, I liked albums like "Trespass", "Nursery Cryme", "Foxtrot" or "Selling England By The Pound" a little bit more, because they were all in all harder and more complex, but "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" was the final masterpiece with mastermind & singer Peter Gabriel and the rest of the superb line-up. I think they reached with this unbelievable work their highest creative level and created one of the best and most important double-albums and concepts of all time! The hit "Carpet Crawlers" shows the forthcoming way of the band, how they will go on later with drummer Phil Collins as singer on more commercial pop/rock album like "And Then There Were Three", "Duke", "Abacab", "Genesis", "Invisible Touch" and "We Can't Dance". After "Lamb Lies Down..." they brang the prog rock-world with "A Trick Of The Tail" and "Wind And Wuthering" the two latest prog albums of the band history. But many old fans of the (together with Yes) best and most important artrock band of all time would found with the band Marillion a new fave in the 80's, and the mainstream-audience were the new fans of Genesis in the 80's and 90's on their commercial trip, but they would never been as brilliant as they were together with Peter Gabriel as singer on unreached milestones in prog-history like "Nursery Cryme", "Foxtrot", "Selling England By The Pound" or "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway"!
