5 stars Genesis has changed, even in the Peter Gabriel era.

Right on the opening notes of the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, it showcases a new Genesis. A less whimsy, more ambient and darker Genesis. Yes, Selling England By The Pound was the best prog album of all time. But doing a Selling England By The Pound part two would be too safe, and I never want that out of a prog band. They made a beautiful concept album, with the help of Brian Eno. Peter wrote the lyrics, while the other members wrote the music. Which resulted that there were no such things as Harold The Barrel in this album. The only thing that comes closer to that is Counting Out Time, the poppiest song on the album.

Many critisise the story line, for being incomprehensible. You don't see the story line like it's told. You can see that as a pregnancy. You can see that as about split personality like Phil Collins said. The album has many significations. But it's story is very imaginative.

Well, the Lamb is excellent.
