There cannot be a debate when a difference in opinion and taste is so radical imo. I think 'To each his own ' is the only possible formula wink

4. But if somebody says that ATTWT is overrated, that's total b***ocks as the album is held in such low esteem by so many.



I think it must be put in a general context, when ATTW3 came out I found it weak, it was the first time for me with a Genesis album I could have lived without 50% of the material. Now; I personally would rate it higher than anything they released after Duke which doesn't seem bad at all in terms of general ranking imo.

I think Disc 1 of the Lamb is absolutely magnificent, but Disc 2 is kind of overrated. I feel most of the songs on Disc 2 are lesser versions of the songs on Disc 1. The biggest example being Colony of Slippermen, which to me, seems like a below-average version of the stupendous In The Cage.

My favourite song on Disc 2 is "Silent Sorrow in Empty Boats". Beautiful name, beautiful song. smiley

I suspect that TLL isn't really answering the question. She's just saying that she loves the albums up to the end of the 1970s but isn't too keen on the albums from 1980 onwards. wink

Ok, that would explain it because generally speaking the 4 man era albums is something almost everybody agrees on

True. And it does have its moments, though i'm probably one of a few who prefer ATTW3 to W&W
