Product Description


When it comes to making albums of epic proportions, few rival this magnificent production that a trip the band took to New York City inspired in 1973. The underlying story is of a street kid named Rael who, thanks in part to the realities of big city life, undergoes a weird and mystical transformation. Containing extended instrumental sections showcasing the extraordinary talents of Tony Banks, Steve Hackett, and Phil Collins, as well as the expressive vocals and often disturbing lyrics of Peter Gabriel, this is the album that located Genesis truly on the map. --Paul Clark

5.0 out of 5 stars Gabriel's magnum opus with Genesis June 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
English art rockers Genesis released their seventh(and lone double studio) album entitled The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway in November of 1974. The album was created at a time where tensions in the band were astronomically high. Lead singer Peter Gabriel was going through some personal and professional problems while this album was being created(his daughter was born prematurely and uncertainty if his daughter would live(luckily she survived), his failed attempt at a filmscript and his bandmates were angered that Peter was more concerned about his family than the band(in later years, all the members would become parents)). Despite the on-going tensions in the group, Gabriel created one final masterpiece with Genesis before he left the band in May of 1975 after the tour in support of The Lamb. TLLDoB was a concept album about a Puerto Rican kid named Rael whom falls into a netherworld known as New York and struggles to find himself throughout the course of the album. Some of the many standouts on this album are the title cut, In the Cage(arguably the best song on the album), Back in NYC, Counting Out Time, The Carpet Crawlers(a concert staple for many years), The Chamber of 32 Doors, The Lamia, The Colony of Slippermen and the closing track It. I first discovered this album in early September of 1997, when I picked up a used cassette copy(would buy the remastered CD two months later), and I was shocked on how excellent it really is and is today one of my Top 20 favorite rock albums of all time. Unfortunately Peter Gabriel left after the tour in support of this album and eventually guitarist Steve Hackett would quit as well in late 1977. If you want the best of the Gabriel era Genesis, buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason" Sept. 2 2014
Format:Audio CD
I have no problem with people who love Genesis after Peter Gabriel left the band. I don't understand how you could prefer Phil Collin's version of Genesis compared to the original band, but hey, "it's a free world". It is people who compare post Peter Gabriel Genesis with the original Genesis that makes me want to gauge my eyes out with ice picks. I often cannot believe what I am reading. The original Genesis was the musical vision of Peter Gabriel. The second incarnation of the band was under the musical control of Phil Collins. The original Genesis was a progressive art band. Phil Collins led Genesis more and more into an AM radio pop band. To understand that Genesis' best selling album was and still is "Invisible Touch" is disturbing to me. The fact that "Invisible Touch" had 5 hits under Collin's vision tells me that this is a very different band than the one that made music under Peter Gabriel's tutelage. My observation is that Phil Collins turned Genesis more and more into a pop oriented band. It became more AM pop driven music with each successive album that was released after Gabriel's departure. Then to bring up their album "Invisible Touch" again has me wondering how that album was released under the "Genesis' name. If you had woken me from a coma, you would not have me believe that this was the same Genesis that I listened to on their first six albums (sans the first album).
Everybody who gave "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" and their other early work good reviews have covered why these albums are so good. So, I'm not going to delve into that content much, other than to say each of the six albums simply brilliant. It's my opinion that Genesis with Peter Gabriel at the helm made better albums in every way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the best Genesis album June 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the most adventurous recorded works ever undertaken, and I'd recommend it to anyone with the urge to hear something new that will, with repeated listens, move you and thrill you. Y'know, like music's supposed to do.
Peter Gabriel has remarked that the main character of the story basically goes on an adventure through which one gets a better understanding of self; the transformation theme. It's curious how listeners debate the lyrical meaning behind this great rock drama. It was perfectly clear to me the first time I listened to it.
Actually, that's not quite accurate. It became perfectly clear to me once I gave the thing a fair chance.
The actual sound of the music is (as always) much more "important" than the mere words in regards to how a piece strikes the ear. In that sense, Lamb can be listened to several dozen times and the ear will continue to catch something new each time. It's a masterpiece.
Eno's involvement was minimal -- Gabriel has said that Eno hardly did anything, and nobody quite knew why they gave him credit. I was glad to read that before I bought the CD. I don't like Eno's "wallpaper music" philosophy.
Rael, the main character in the lyrics, is a cast-off, ignored by the snotty masses, suspiciously eyed by racist policemen (as explained in Gabriel's liner-note narrative) and trying to make a name for himself in some tiny capacity by spray-painting his name onto a subway wall. Gabriel also writes of the "low-market mal-nutritioned." This is Rael. He's a half-Puerto-Rican sacrifice on the altar of Broadway stereotypes, the inferior vagabond who must exist -- and remain hungry -- to support this grand illusion that the avenue's icons contribute to.

This is probably one of the greatest albums ever made to the music enthusiast and musician, certainly right at the top of all the Genesis/Pete Gabriel efforts.
