Quote of the Day

The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway is a hymn to the integral innocence of the human spirit meeting the bacon slicer of a corruptive society; a forerunner to the ‘street music’ of the late ’70s and far better crafted. That’s why the legend of the piece grows stronger through the years while much rival material has gone swiftly to the dumper. Maybe Genesis offered insights into a different kind of hopelessness, a more internalized condition, from that endured by today’s largely unemployed young; but it was and is only a difference in kind.” (Tony Stratton-Smith, 1982)(And damn right on the money he was).
