“The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway” by Genesis - album review

TJR says

Just one look at the costumed Peter Gabriel in “The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway” tour pretty much tells you all you need to know about this pompous 'mare. The sixth Genesis was another concept affair, centred on Rael, a Puerto Rican youth living in New York City, his journey of self-discovery and the bizarre incidents and strange characters he meets along the way. At the beginning of the story, the leather-clad street Punk finds himself on Broadway where he sees a lamb lying down on the street. Ahem. It amuses me to read that Gabriel had objected to Mike Rutherford's idea of an album based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's “The Little Prince”, decrying the idea “too twee”. I'm keeping a very safe distance between myself and these people…
