Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is an incredible achievement of artistic ambition and serious musicianship led on the heals of five very talented head strong men all thinking that they knew what direction the band should go in. The end result is something so confusing to follow yet strangely exciting that people will be listening to it for many years to come wondering about it's mystery just as one wonders about the Mona Lisa's smile. Of course the musicians involved have no answers themselves. The new blend of musical ideas such as Eno-esque soundscapes (Brian Eno actually worked on this album), incredibly inventive drumming by Phil Collins; Peter Gabriel pushing his voice to new arenas of sound (he never sounded better before or since) making each character and emotion have it's own voice; Tony Banks creating amazing keyboard passages that rank with anything that Keith Emerson had ever done; Steve Hackett, always under used but always finding just the right phrase to add to put a song to the top; and Mike Rutherford played great bass throughout the album (check out: In the Cage). The theme of Lamb Lies Down on Broadway itself seems to be too much of an enigma but the bottom line is that it is about the inner turmoil of a young NY punk trying to get it together. There are liner notes in the CD further explaining the story, but you need a magnifying glass to read them and even if you do have good eye sight you still may not see what the hell is going on. But since when in art are you supposed to figure it all out at once. The music is more the focal point anyway- the songs work well individually and as well as collectively baring (at times)the theme. For me the first disc has always captured my attention a bit more than the second.Read more ›

A curious one, this. A mass of contradictions. A sprawling, pompous prog-rock concept album packed with taught, snappy tunes. A showcase for the virtuoso musicianship of this most British of progressive bands, but featuring some of the most awesomely tight ensemble playing you will hear this side of a Bartok string quartet. This was the sort of music that punk rock was invented as an antidote for, and yet its obession with the phenomenology of inner city street life was two decades ahead of its time (rap is still going down the same graffiti-strewn alley today).

The story behind the stylish, surrealistic lyrics is that of Rael, a young Puerto Rican graffiti artist on the streets of New York, who finds himself catapulted into a symbolic underworld (a sort of Jungian Hades) where the meaning or possibly the meaningless of his former street life is played out in a series of surreal cameos involving a cloning (The Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging), religion (Carpet Crawlers), various sexual urges and anxieties (The Lamia, The Colony of Slippermen, The Doktor, etc.), disorientation (The Chamber of 32 Doors), and death (Anyway, The Supernatural Anaesthetist). The final message about saving one's own self through self-sacrifice is almost but not quite religious, and its curiously cautious optimism does not at all clash with the rest.

This was the last album Genesis made with Peter Gabriel as principal lyricist and vocalist, and the last but two featuring the astonishing Steve Hackett (now a successful solo artist in his own right) on lead guitar. Provided you can cope with the odd few minutes of self-indulgence it ranks as one the band's best albums. It certainly contains some of the best playing and one of the best studio productions of their career.

Released in 1974, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is THE magnum opus in the Genesis catalog. A sprawling and impenetrably dense concept work, this double album saw Peter Gabriel pulling out all of the stops in the concept department. Interestingly enough, the album was an attempt to move away from fantasy matter and take on a more modern subject which, in this case, involved a Puerto Rican juvenile delinquent named Rael who had a split personality. As an aside, Mike Rutherford initially suggested that the band use the story of The Little Prince as the concept for the album, but Peter felt it was too much like "prancing around in fantasyland". I for one am glad they went in the direction that they did.

Peter's story mixes Rael's recollections of his home in New York with images of a nightmarish world populated by colonies of hideously deformed Slippermen; the deceptive and wily Lamia that are part female/part snake; blind "seers"; factories where people are "made"; and most importantly, Rael's alter ego "brother" John. Ultimately, the differences in Rael's split personality are reconciled at the end of the album, as he saves John (Rael) from certain death in the raging rapids of a large river. Rael is surprised as he pulls John from the river only to find himself staring at his own face. Peter referred to the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway in interviews as his version of a "Pilgrim's Progress", and was ultimately a "transformation" story. Sound intense? Trust me, it is.

The music itself is proportionally intense and features classic Genesis workouts with pieces like In the Cage; The Colony of Slippermen; and the mind-numbing complexity of Riding the Scree. In addition, Genesis wrote very experimental tracks such as the Waiting Room (which was alternately titled "Evil-jam").

does anyone know if this is has the bonus DVD?
This does NOT have the DVD. The only way to get it is with the boxset. There are rumours that you can get the 3-disc set through Japan but the cost I believe is quite high. I searched forever for this and could not find it anywhere apart from the boxset. I was lucky enough to find just the... Read More
