I am huge Genesis fan, but I always found The Musical Box to just be a "good" song, as opposed to notable or special.

The Camera Eye is not one of my favorite Rush tracks, but I like it more than the Genesis tune.

Both bands have dozens and dozens of better songs.

Sorry Earl.  Genesis fronted by Gabriel never released a song that deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as anything on MP.

Gabriel fronted Genesis does nothing for me.  To be honest, his solo stuff. other than So and Us, doesn't either.

No.  I'm not a huge prog fan, and I don't love Gabriel's voice.  I do enjoy So and Us though.

So is amazing.  And I like what I've heard of Us.

Beyond that, Gabriel is hit and miss with me, Genesis included.  I much prefer Collins-fronted Genesis.

Not bloody likely!!

Suppers ready is decent.  Musical Box kicks ass.  But TCE is one of my favorites from Rush.  So TCE it is!

Lol, I'm not prepared to go that far Earl! :P

But yeah, MP isn't the be all end all, much as I love it. I'd probably put Supper's Ready above YYZ, that being my fav track on MP, and I wouldn't be discontent with a couple other songs as well...maybe Get 'Em Out By Friday...maybe Dancing With The Moonlit Knight...I could possibly see Firth Of Fifth or Watcher Of The Skies as well...

And much of what's on those albums does blow TCE away, sorry.
