Genesis is the self-titled twelfth studio album by the English rock band Genesis, released on 3 October 1983 on Charisma Records. The band decided on its title as each of the album's nine tracks were written as a group. The album cover depicts the shapes from a Shape-O, a children's toy made by Tupperware. Mike Rutherford referred to this album as his favorite Genesis album
