Genesis Nursery Cryme – Another Misfire from Classic Records

More Genesis

More Nursery Cryme


Sonic Grade: F

Hall of Shame pressing and another Classic Records LP debunked.

The Classic Heavy Vinyl pressing is a smeary lifeless mess next to the better British pressings.   


Side One

The Musical Box 
For Absent Friends
The Return of the Giant Hogweed

Side Two

Seven Stones 
Harold the Barrel
The Fountain of Salmacis

AMG Review

If Genesis truly established themselves as progressive rockers on Trespass, Nursery Cryme is where their signature persona was unveiled: true English eccentrics, one part Lewis Carroll and one part Syd Barrett, creating a fanciful world that emphasized the band’s instrumental prowess as much as Peter Gabriel’s theatricality… these are the songs that showed what Genesis could do, and they still stand as pinnacles of what the band could achieve.
