Selling England and Foxtrot trump all other Genesis releases for me. The only part of Selling England that doesn't sit well with me is that Gabriel named the characters in the "The Cinema Show" Romeo and Juliet... I just doesn't work or sound right to me... too trivial.

I don't use the word brilliant (except just then of course), but Nursery Cryme comes pretty close. Therefore, for me, Selling England is very good, with Gabriel and Collins sharing the vocals. Really, all of the Gabriel/Hackett material is very good. The decline started when they left the band.

For my money the 1975 Live album is the greatest album of that Genesis period. All of the tracks are superior to their studio versions.

I grew up listening to their 83 self titled, so that was the image of Genesis I had in my head throughout my teen years. That's a pretty good album, if you ask me...but once I learned good ol Philly Collins wasn't the original frontman, I had to check it out...especially since I was on a huge progressive rock kick. The first song I checked out was "Dancing With the Moonlit Knight"...it was pretty epic so Selling England By the Pound became my first Gabriel era Genesis album. It is still my favorite to this day...though Foxtrot and the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway are definitely up there, too.

Firth of Fifth pumps me the **** up every time I listen to it. From the piano intro to the solo that mirrors the flute line...oh man, it's an eargasm every time.

Genesis 1983 actually is a VERY good album. Still have the original vinyl.

PS your signature is one of my all time favorite songs!!

Cheers, it's one of mine as well. It really defined a period of my life. It's still a really powerful song to me.

Definitely not their best but very good. I love Gabriel's voice in Dancing with the Moonlit Knight.

Although I now rank The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway my favorite Gabriel Genesis album, this still ranks up there in the Brilliant category for me at this time.

Still, right now, it's a perfect time to hear it where I'm at (night), and I'm in a great mood.

Anyways, it's one of the most solid early Genesis albums. It's great enough that I forget all of those who try to capture that feeling and don't even come close. With this album, it's the lyrics that make it stand out.
