Nursery Cryme

From Academic Kids

Nursery Cryme (1971) is the third studio album released by Genesis. It is also the first album to feature the lineup of Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins, and Steve Hackett, the final two replacing John Mayhew and Anthony Phillips on drums and guitar, respectively. This lineup would remain consistent until Gabriel's departure in 1975.

Though not as polished as the albums that followed, Nursery Cryme was still a large progression from the groups' previous album Trespass. "The Musical Box" and "The Return of the Giant Hogweed" became staples of their live performances, and showcased the growing skills of each of the band members.
