If I was a math geek I'd create a graph that shows percentage numbers for statistical probabilities of answers in this thread. Since I'm not, I'll just say high vs. low:

Expected answers for average Genesis fans and/or new forum members:

Over: NC, Foxtrot, SEBTP, Lamb, Trick, Wind, Duke
Under: FGTR, Abacab, IT, WCD, CAS

Answers from long-term forum members are less predictable; however, they are expected to deliberately depart from above answers. Most likely, they will be a mixture of above 'common' answers and rather uncommon answers.

Definitly Selling England by the Pound... For sure, it has got strong songs, but I can't listen to the Studio Versions. I really fell asleep during Cinema Show. The Live versions a whole lot better. Phil's drumming is to soft on this one as well. Even on the 2007 Remaster, there is just not enough power for me. The Lamb or Foxtrott had alot more power.

I like these songs, but only the live versions. Hm, but I still don't like the Battle of Epping Forest. cheesy

Over: SEBTP
I like the album but it's definatly not their greatest as people claim it to be. Battle of Epping Forrest is just tedious.
Under: ATTWT
IMO their most underrated. It's been dismissed by alot of fans and the band themselves. Has great songs such as "Say It's Alright Joe" and "Burning Rope".

Interesting, I have the opposite opinion.
Those SOFT jazzy drums on CS is what I prefer!

Interesting. As much as I love IT, it only seems to get a bad rep from those strictly camped in the 'prog' section.
