Monday 26th – The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

Whether you love or hate them, concept albums have always made some sort of ripple on the music world. Released by Genesis in 1974, ‘The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway’ marked the end of an era for the band when after touring the album, Peter Gabriel suddenly left the group.

Telling the story of Rael, a Puerto Rican living in New York, ‘TLLDOB’ track listing follows him as he finds himself descending into the bizarre underground of the city in order to rescue his brother John.

Well worth a listen the album contains stunning lyrical and musical genius. In my view a top concept album with a poignant story if you stop to listen and consider the lyrics.
