I think that one of the earlier reviewers is being a touch harsh about this album. Overall, I enjoy the CD. I do have some reservations, and these are down to Mr. Hackett's eccentric ideas, sense of humour, and urge to experiment. `Dance On A Volcano' is one of my favourite Genesis tracks, and I must admit that Steve's interpretation, using distorted vocals, does not really do it for me. Otherwise the piece is played with style and gusto that do it justice. Another piece that raises questions for me is `Waiting Room Only' - the urge to hit the fast forward is almost overwhelming. An interesting exercise in musical experimentation, but ultimately, for me, it seems overly self-indulgent (even though there is a passing nod to Queen's classic `Brighton Rock' lurking in there!)
Other new arrangements of old favourites put a freshness into them that is not to be dismissed out of hand. Indeed, the new versions may encourage people to dig out albums they have not listened to in a while for a comparison, and may find they like both. Perhaps the album should be thought of as a `what if?' scenario.
In summary, if you cannot bear the idea of someone, even a former member, messing around with your favourite Genesis albums, this CD is probably not for you. However, if you fancy a new interpretation, maybe it's worth a try. Personally, I err towards the review given by Bigusdaveus - read it and you will get a fair idea of what this album contains.
