My newfound appreciation for prog rock continues to the most obvious next step, Genesis' The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. Never being a fan of Peter Gabriel nor Phil Collins, I was surprised how much I enjoyed the two of them together. This is Genesis before Collins and that douche from Mike & the Mechanics took the band over and started recorded pop drivel like "Invisible Touch" and "I Can't Dance". I'll let Phil Collins have "Sussudio" though. That is a good song.
Anyway, early Genesis was weird in a fabulous way. Watching this video from Youtube alone got me up to speed as to what they were like. Not everyone's cup of tea, but art rock at it's finest for sure. And I've never seen a cool looking Peter Gabriel before, yet here he is!
