Product Description

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

I'm not a big fan of the old music but i've heard good thing about LLDOB so i picked it up.
without going into great detail about it, all I have to say is it ok... ok u ask?
yes, just ok I'm more of a Phil fan not as much of a Peter.
With that said there are some really great song to chose from in this 2 CD set, but you really have to sift through it.

"The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" is Peter Gabriel's swan song to his participation in the band he had a great hand in making famous. It also marks a significant NON-SEQUITIR in everything Genesis had previously achieved AND what followed after. So, for those who especially love the Gabriel-era Genesis it positively screams to be looked at in great detail. "The Lamb" was also their only truly full-fledged "concept" album. Prior albums were themed but this is clearly one carefully detailed narrative, which is something Genesis always excelled at - storytelling. And it is very much a product of 1974. That year saw the release of similar double concept albums; YES's "Tales From Topographic Oceans", The Who's "Quadrophenia" and Gong's "You" ( not a double disc but the 3rd album in a trilogy ). Such things were the Zeitgeist and marked a crest in popular music's will to complexity and experiment.

With "Selling England by the Pound" Genesis mastered beautifully all the many elements that gave them their very own distinctive voice and wove them all into a magnificent tapestry that was never excelled afterward. For me, "Selling England" had everything, all in the right proportions and balance. Each member of the band sounded better on it than at any other time. Each one of them contributed evenly and seamlessly to a truly masterly work of words and music.

Songs like "Firth of Fifth" and "The Cinema Show" are two of the greatest pieces of music in the entire "progessive canon", performed and recorded with such skill and taste that they still induce goosebumps DECADES later. The album was the very best thing they had done to date. The "Selling England" tour has now reached mythical status and those who saw it when it was fresh and new will NEVER forget it.

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!

I'm sure die-hard Peter-Gabriel-era Genesis fans will think I'm the Antichrist for saying this, but I wish "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" was released as one long, single album. For an album touted as one of the greatest prog-rock masterpieces ever, it should be better. And the only thing that really needed to be done was to trim the fat.
On the positive side, the stuff that is good here is some of the best Genesis ever did with Peter Gabriel. If a rock opera is what they had in mind, the top of the opening title track is the lights going down, the orchestra starting the overture, and the layers of curtains opening and lifting in grand fashion. The words of the album's title are the first lyrics you hear, and they're sung with so much pomp and circumstance, that all it takes is one listen and you will never forget the hook.
The mood then goes from the fanfare of the title track, to dark imagery on "Fly on a Windshield" and "Broadway Melody of 1975", to the ray-of-sunshine relief of the pretty guitar and piano melodies of "Cuckoo Cocoon", before wandering into the dark and dangerous alley of the album's highlight, the desperate, complex, and rocking "In the Cage." It's a shame the best and most climactic song on the album (especially a double album) comes within the first fourth of the record. Side 1 is topped off with the ultimately quasi-cataclysmic "Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging."
The next 5 tracks (side 2 of album 1) start out promising with "Back in NYC", a keyboard-driven song that shifts between rhythms in 7/8, 6/8, 4/8, and 3/8, but somehow never sounds forced or awkward. And for all those who only know Phil Collins as love song cheese ball, it's so cool to hear him pounding out time signatures worthy of Neil Peart and Bill Bruford.
