Genesis - (1971) Nursery Cryme

Genesis - (1971) Nursery Cryme

Studio Album, released in 1971

Favorite Genesis album for sure. It's actually quite interesting I never got into Genesis before. I had listened to all the essential albums and found (quite quickly) that it just wasn't my cup of tea. A couple of years later, I listened again to the same albums I once found boring and dull. Probably the best thing I did. Now, all I do is listen to Genesis. All the albums from 1970 to 1976 are mandatory for any prog lover but 1971's 'Nursery Cryme' in my opinion is unbeatable. Check out the opening track along with The Return Of The Giant Hogweed and The Fountain Of Salmacis. These songs are just masterpieces. You'll also find other cool tunes like Harold the Barrel. Overall a kick ass record with all the elements of a good prog band. Definetly check out the other albums if you like this one. Cheers
