The swelling mellotron on the intro to 'The Fountain of Salmacis' is one of my favourite moments in a Genesis song ever, as well as the rocking out sections in 'The Musical Box' etc. etc. As much as I find Nursery Cryme, in a way, to be a bit of a dry run for Foxtrot, it's got some stunning moments on it. With a better production job it could have even been one of their best ever.

The early epics rock hardest on Genesis Live. Plus that album cover is one of my favourite rock images.

The shredding guitar solo bits on "Musical Box" feel a bit proto-Maiden to me.
