For me, its:

1. Ripples - Even though it's a simple performance video, it's most tasteful and professional looking.

2. A Trick of the Tail - Whimsical and a bit silly, but the "tiny Phil" effects were not bad for '76.

3. Robbery, Assault, & Battery - This one is just silly fun, but hey, you get to see Tony Banks as a copper!

None of them impressed me. I'd much rather just listen to the songs.

I always find it interesting they never did videos for DOAV or Squonk. Those were much better songs than what was chosen to do videos for.

I love all thee of the videos. It's like a little time capsule to catch a glimpse of the band during that time. I'll pick Trick of the Tail as my favorite because I just love the cheesiness of it and that song just puts me in a good mood.

At the time, videos were just a burgeoning promotional enterprise for most artists. In hindsight, I'm quite surprised at what Genesis was able to offer for what was relatively a low profile band in those days. But I think that they really never had the opportunity to present a decent video of themselves until the "Turn It On Again" promo.

Genesis were at their best as a live band. That was never really captured in any promo video, and even their live films don't quite get the gist of their in concert awesomeness. The only segment of the "Trick" videos that capture something of the band's live persona is found in the RA&B video, so, that gets my vote.
