Analogue Productions (Atlantic Series) Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Atlantic Records! The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis' gold-selling sixth studio album! 180-gram 45 RPM 4LP Mastered directly from the original master tape by Bernie Grundman Pressed at Quality Record Pressings and RTI Tip-on old style gatefold double pocket jackets with film lamination by Stoughton Printing Genesis' sixth studio album was released as a double album in November 1974 by Charisma Records and is the last to feature original frontman Peter Gabriel. The group's longest album to date, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway peaked at No. 10 on the U.K. Albums Chart and No. 41 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S.. The album is a concept album and tells the surreal story, devised by Gabriel, of a young Puerto Rican named Rael who embarks on a journey through a series of strange and bizarre events in New York City. Musically, the album is a departure from the band's previous works, incorporating a wide range of styles including progressive rock, art rock, funk, and jazz fusion. The album features complex rhythms, intricate melodies, and dense layers of instrumentation, showcasing the band's virtuosic musicianship. The album is notable for it's use of storytelling, with each track contributing to the larger narrative of Rael's journey. The lyrics are often cryptic and abstract, and the album's surreal imagery has been interpreted in a variety of ways by listeners and critics. The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway gained acclaim in the years after it's release, reaching gold certification for sales in the U.K. and U.S.. In 1978, Nick Kent wrote for NME that it 'had a compelling appeal that often transcended the hoary weightiness of the mammoth concept that held the equally mammoth four sides of vinyl together.' In a special edition of Q and Mojo magazines titled Pink Floyd & The Story of Prog Rock, The Lamb ranked at No. 14 in it's 40 Cosmic Rock Albums list. The album came third in a list of the 10 best concept albums by Uncut magazine, where it was described as an 'impressionistic, intense album' and 'pure theatre (in a good way) and still Gabriel's best work.' A Rolling Stone poll to rank readers' favourite progressive rock albums of all time placed The Lamb fifth in the list. The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is widely regarded as one of Genesis's most important and influential works, inspiring generations of progressive rock musicians. Tracklist:0 Side 1 1 1.
