Given all the overt literary references of Selling England by the Poundalong with their taste for epic suites such as "Supper's Ready," it was only a matter of time before Genesis attempted a full-fledged concept album, and 's The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway was a massive rock opera: Ravine - Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway winding, wielding story of a Puerto Rican hustler name Rael making his way Recordando A Juan Salvador - Manolo Galván - Todas Sus Grabaciones En Discos Ariola y Belter (1971-1 New York City.
Peter Gabriel made some tentative moves toward developing this story into a movie with William Friedkin but it never took off, perhaps it's just as well; even with the lengthy libretto included with the album, the story never makes sense.
But just because the story is rather impenetrable doesn't mean that the album is as well, because it is a forceful, imaginative piece of work that showcases the original Genesis lineup at a peak. Even if the story is rather hard to piece together, the album is set up in a remarkable fashion, with the first LP being devoted to pop-oriented rock songs and the second being largely devoted to instrumentals.
This means that The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway contains both Genesis ' most immediate music to date and its most elliptical. Depending on a listener's taste, they may gravitate toward the first Ravine - Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway with its tight collection of ten rock songs, or the nightmarish landscapes of the second, where Rael descends into darkness and ultimately redemption or so it would seembut there's little question that the first album is far more direct than the second and it contains a number of masterpieces, from the opening fanfare of the title song to the surging "In the Cage," from the frightening "Back in NYC" to the soothing Ravine - Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway "The Carpet Crawlers.
