Originally released in February 1973, “Selling England By The Pound” was the bands fifth studio album and their biggest seller so far. Still with singer Peter Gabriel it included the bands first encounter with the singles chart with "I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe). Hard to define, the album was both a progression in skill and sophistication from the previous 'Foxtrot' and a backtrack to the more whimsical 'English Countryside' atmosphere of earlier outings such as 'Nursery Cryme'.
The album cover art is a painting by Betty Swanwick entitled The Dream albeit that the original was doctored with the addition of a lawn mower (added at the band's request as an allusion to the song "I Know What I Like").
In 2012, the album ranked seventh in Rolling Stone's "Readers' Poll: Your Favorite Prog Rock Albums of All Time".
