I really love these albums especially Peter Gabriel's vocals. I really like the art wort that was put into both of these albums very much as well. I love that Phil Collins is actually the lead vocalist in a couple of songs before the Phil Collins era of Genesis the songs are For Absent Friends which is on Nursery Cryme and More Fool Me which is on Selling England by the pound. Tony Banks keeps the song sound amazing by his Keyboard, Piano, and Organ playing skills as with Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford with their Guitars and Bass Guitars as well. Same can be said with the Lamb Lies Down On Broadway and that one is a really fun one to listen to in my experience of listening to Progressive Rock or music in general. I want to know what is your thought on the albums Nursery Cryme and Selling England By The Pound?

^ Only 15 years old and into early Genesis! Pretty remarkable. Back in my late teens, I played in my first band. We were called Temporary Scrubs. We practiced but never played any live shows, probably because the four of us were on different wavelengths. I was into The Clash, The Pretenders and The Specials. Meredith was into The Jam. The drummer was into jazz and hard rock, and Jeremy was into early Genesis. It was because of him that I started listening to them as well as Lou Reed. Good stuff if a little challenging.

I don't really know Nursery Cryme, but I still play my vinyls of Selling England and A Trick of the Tail. I just posted some songs from them a few weeks back. Early Genesis was brilliant.

Thanks, but I didn't create it.
It's my favourite author Emily Brontë, taken from this painting by Kate O'Keefe:

My favorite author is Phillip K. Dick because he wrote the Man In The High Castle.
