How Genesis Made a Transition With ‘The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’. The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is Genesis' best-known enigma, a project almost universally respected if seldom understood. By the time it was over, Gabriel had left for a celebrated solo career, and Genesis had been reshaped forever. Even now, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway – which was released in November 1974 – is a bundle of contradictions, mysteries, narrative twists and real-life turns. Just like its principal creator, Gabriel. Genesis put forward a tough character named Rael in a difficult situation – and it had more in common with the Who's rock operas than with anything the sometimes twee Genesis had done before.

My husband was a gawky 20 year old when he offered me my first extensive explication of the Lamb, complete with warbly falsetto embellishments. He listens to it during study time to block out sensory overwhelm. He listens on the bus to escape social awkwardness. Its mathematically precise but inventively structured songs both calm and intrigue him. And he and his dad never get tired of talking about it.
