Genesis – Back in NYC (1974)

YouTube – Amazon – iTunes – Discogs

The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway was Peter Gabriel’s swansong long player with Genesis. And it was an ambitious one. The concept of their 6th studio album was about a Puerto Rican youth named Rael living in NYC, who aims to rescue his brother John from an underground world of nightmares. The album’s full of gems, but I’ve plumped for ‘Back in NYC’ for its unusual edge. “I see faces and traces of home back in New York CITY!” Genesis (or should that be Gabriel) never sounded so angry.
