While I am a big Genesis fan (especially the period 1972 to 1976), I’ve always struggled to appreciate The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway in the way that other Genesis fans do. It’s got some great songs like the title track, Carpet Crawlers and In The Cage but I’m underwhelmed by some of the others.

The live version sounds to me as if it’s got much more guts to it. I want to buy it but I want to pay a fair price for it. My solution has been to buy mp3 downloads for the most important and best tracks from The Lamb.
