There is a separate part one poll that has the rest of the albums. Please only vote on one poll.

I voted for Wind & Wuthering, which was on the other poll.

Do you mind telling us why? I would call this my least favourite cover. If the band are in that photo you can barely distinguish them. I've been meaning to ask this anyway. Who's who? The guy on the left looks vaguely like Tony.

Afaik those were random people and that cover has been misleading Genesis fans for decades (me too) because everybody tries to identify the band members. It is the only Genesis cover ever that shows a photo of real people who are not band members nor connected to the band in any way at all.

Wasn't the title a nod to Christie's novel And there there were none? Hence the cover? Anyway my least favorite cover of their first period.

I always thought it was Phil. Apparently not.

Just my 2 cents but I find all post Duke covers, with the exception of WCD extremely ugly, that would include the live albums.
Shapes and IT are imo downright horrific.

From what I remember hearing/reading, they're supposed to be the same person in a time lapse. I like the mystery of it. The colour of the sky. The drama. Not sure particularly how to explain it properly, I just like it smiley
