Remember the first time you heard 'And Then There Were Three'. It was like seeing your favourite football team after that creative midfielder you always loved had been transferred. Still your team, but the magic had gone somehow.

Steve Hackett was always the member of Genesis you'd most like to spend the afternoon in a pub with (Banks too unfriendly, Rutherford too posh, Gabriel too odd and Phil too - well, um, too Phil). So it's almost impossible to be objective about this album, containing as it does music that we know every beat, note and chord of and has been part of our lives for getting on for forty years. As others have said the vocal choices don't always work, but a special mention to Francis Dunnery who does a great job on 'Dancing with the Moonlit Knight' and the closing section of 'Supper's Ready'. (If you want to know what it means to Dunnery look up his Wikaepedia page). And whisper it quietly but this really is up there with the best versions of Supper's Ready. Other highlights for me are the much underrated 'Can Utility and the Coastliners', 'Shadow of the Hierophant' and 'The Musical Box'. And at last, after thirty seven years, Steve's fantastic guitar part on 'Ripples' emerges from where it was buried under Tony Banks' Liberace impression all those years ago.

If some of the recordings on here are a little too close to the originals for some, then check out Genesis Revisited I which is a lot more experimental but still contains fantastic versions of 'Firth of Fifth' and 'Watcher of the Skies'.But in the end it's Steve's music and he can do what he likes with it. As long as it's done with respect and love, which this undoubtedly is, then that's all we can ask for and we should be on our knees thanking God (Steve) for keeping this wonderful music alive.

I count my self lucky to have seen Genesis when Steve Hackett was still with them. Like many who saw them in the early seventies the early music is the material I like best and will always have a special place in my heart. Thats not to say that some of the latter songs where not without merit but that was a different animal.

Its almost pointless reviewing the songs one by one here as most will know them and have their favourites.

My favourite song isn't here though "Cinema Show" but I will let that pass as we have got "Can Utility and the Coast Liners" and "Dancing with the Moonlight Knight" as well as sections from the often overlooked "Wind and Wuthering."

This reworking of old favourites is superbly executed and has a clean brighter sound in places. My only real gripe as others have mentioned is that some of the vocalists don't "gel" very well, particularly on "Ripples." Its not that it is bad its just that the vocals are a long way from what you expect. It could grow.

So, why have I given it five stars then. Its a valiant effort and who am I really to criticise the magnificent music of such a wonderful guitarist. Not forgetting such magnificent musicians that played on the original and here on the remake. Truly "Twilights Last Gleaming.' As Phil Collins sang on "Driving the Last Spike," we will never see the likes of them again.

To the odd younger person that may stroll in here by chance I would say buy this if you want a master class in melodic, powerful and emotive prog rock. These guys never went in one direction they where omnipresent!

I will say this though, the reworking of a Tower Struck Down is almost "King Crimson" and if my memory serves me right not actually a Genesis track. Neither is Shadow of the Hierophant but lets not let a few facts get in the way of a good album.

If I can I will be there to see this live next year. Thanks Steve for such a great album.

This is an excellent flash-back to what I consider was the high point of Genesis. The vocalists take a little getting used to, sometimes sounding like a Peter Gabriel imitator (with mixed results, some bad, some over-done, some good), sometimes a throaty Phil Collins, and sometimes, to be honest, they are over-dramatic and sound like someone having a laugh. The only one that doesn't really work for me is the female voice on Ripples - it has potential as an idea (an older woman's voice singing of her lost youth), but lacks the power in the chorus to carry it off. But the music overall is good - slightly more dynamic instrumentals than the original, with a few interesting ad-libs tucked into the mix. If I had one criticism it would be that the tracks are a little too close to the original release and I had hoped for some updating in pace and style, along the lines of the 1999 Genesis Carpet Crawlers release. Still, it is a long album with a well chosen set of tracks and I found myself singing away to it at full tilt from start to finish!

I approached this CD with mixed expectations but must admit that it's very impressive and for once had me lost in the music as I had been all those years ago.

I won't review the tracks as if you are reading this you'll know most of them well, but the recording quality is excellent and modern - albeit without that warmth that only old original recordings can bring. However this doesn't detract from the musical experience and the result is very listenable and will no doubt be long lasting. Some have criticised the vocals and I agree that in some cases they are difficult to ignore the "non Gabrielness" but after a few listens these become of less importance.

I for one welcome the clarity of the tracks which allow you to understand what they were likely to be aiming for on the original takes; comparing back there are very clear sections that were only hinted at when listening before.

Well done to Steve and his team - there are also some well known and proficient names here as well as some talents that I've never heard of.

This will remain on the player for some time...
