    I adore ATTW3 and Invisible Touch. The former is dark and moody and fits the music perfectly. IT’s cover refers to the title song but it’s also slightly abstract. Plus it too was textured inviting you to touch it.

    Enjoyed the show as always despite you folks being wrong. πŸ˜‰

      That’s why we keep going – eventually we’ll be right. πŸ˜‰ Hey, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. LOL

    One thing you never mentioned about the Trick of the Tale and Wind & Wuthering album covers was, and this may have been just an UK thing or you may never have seen the originals, but both my covers of these albums purchased in the 70s, were embossed with a ripply bubble effect. They were not smooth which added to their effect. You dont get that with cds or tapes

      True – perhaps it was a UK thing. The album copy of Trick that we were looking at during the recording did have some next texture all through out – but obviously you couldn’t see us rubbing it affectionately during the podcast. πŸ˜‰

    I agree with the top three without doubt. I’m surprised that none of the podcast presenters chose them. I’m disappointed that The Lamb got so well rated as it was such a departure from Genesis’ Englishness.
