Genesis-The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (1974)

The band called par excellence the art-rock are no doubt Genesis, created in the late sixties, early are considered the ultimate expression of the new English rock, sophisticated, cultured, enigmatic drama and especially, the latter under the influence of their leader and singer Peter Gabriel, her first rock albums baroque denote a non-exempt instrumentality due in large part to the virtuosity of its components, Tresspas, Foxtrot and Selling England by the Pound are clear signs of it, but at The Lamb ... your more hard rock where they exploit all their quality, the album's odyssey of a fictional character created by Gabriel called Rael travels the streets of New York seeking his own identity between madness and dreams, and indeed the group achieves an atmosphere as real as hypnotic on a blazing album from the cage in a small suite without respite, to The Carpet Crawlers an epic theme, through moments of great inspiration as Cuckoo Cocoon, Back in NYC, Waiting Room or the fantastic It on the album Steve Hackett invention amazing sounds of guitars and Tony Banks filled with the sound of Mellotron and Moogs the void that left, if we add the perfect rhythm section but unpredictable Mike Rutherford on bass and Phil Collins on drums, we see a perfect musical machine in album review of the group makes a series of songs linked exciting as a thriller film is involved, the double album to make matters worse is a sure confirmation of the most important bands in rock history
