For Genesis fans old and new, The Way We Walk--Live in Concert has definitely been worth the wait. Recorded at London's Earl's Court in November 1992 as part of the group's 56-date world tour, the footage recreates one of their most lavish live tours ever. With a back-stage crew of over a 100, giant video screens and state-of-the-art lighting this was a massive event. The DVD is an equally colossal affair, incorporating over eight hours of concert footage on two discs (a two-hour concert recorded from four separate camera angles). The multi-camera presentation is amazing, providing a unique front-row perspective of all the stage action. The star of the concert is undoubtedly Phil Collins who leaps around, and batters his drum kit like a hormonal teenager. His evangelical introduction to "Jesus He Knows Me" is particularly fitting and amusing. There are also performances of some of Genesis' greatest hits, including "Dance on a Volcano", "Home By the Sea" and! "Invisible Touch". The re-mastered introduction to "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight" sounds tremendous, with the flashing video screens creating an Armageddon-style atmosphere. Audience favourite "Turn It On Again" provides the ultimate ending to the show.

On the DVD: The remixed, surround sound audio track is excellent but despite the multi-camera options the quality of the visual material fails to withstand the rigours of digital presentation. The uninterrupted group commentary is also disappointing, with too many lengthy silences, unnecessary disturbances (mobile phones ringing, unrelated discussions) and little new information about the tour given. The other extras are far more sophisticated such as the comprehensive interviews with Banks, Rutherford and Collins. The original tour programme (including text and photographs) can also be flicked through on screen. The "full-motion" menus are fun and easy to use.--John Galilee

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll never see the likes of them again!! 25 Dec 2005
I never saw Genesis on the We Can't Dance tour and this rather belated DVD release shows just what a spectacle I missed. The performances are powerful throughout (but then with Genesis live would you expect anything less?) and the lighting and video backdrops are stunning. All of this is presented in a format allowing you to view the concert from four different camera angles which makes it fairly unique and rather fun!

Musically, this represents a high point for later-period Genesis. Although for me there is insufficient emphasis on earlier material, this is at least counterbalanced by the fact that, on this tour, some of the lightweight fluff (e.g. Throwing It All Away, In Too Deep) has been jettisoned and replaced by some of the more substantial recent material, such as Fading Lights, Driving the Last Spike and Dreaming While You Sleep. In addition, the Old Medley, particularly the Musical Box/Firth of Fifth section, is genuinely exciting and a fantastic reminder of what a great bunch of musicians they are.

There really are very few negatives but if I am being ultra-critical, I would say that the sound stage seems slightly flat and I wish they had dispensed with Domino after the Invisible Touch Tour. The first part is fine but in the second half (from "now see what you've gone and done.." onwards) the song really loses its way and is the only part of the show I could describe as slightly boring. Also, it was a mistake to close the main part of the concert with "I Can't Dance". It's a fun and inoffensive number but at this point in the show (especially following the scintillating drum duet) it's a tad anti-climactic. The familiar "Los Endos" is sorely missed!
But these are only minor gripes.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're a Genesis fan BUY IT!!! 13 April 2002
By A Customer
A great concert of Genesis at the peek of their career.
I had great expectations before I buy this DVD and most of them were justified. The band performance is fantastic. The drum duet, for instance, is pure magic! A great 'medley' with the "very, very, very old" songs wich you'll want to ear over and over again...
The DVD has many extras, with the multiple angle cameras being the most fun to play around.
The image is not as bright and detailed as more recent DVDs but since this is a 1992 concert we have to live with the video recording technology available at that time. Nevertheless the image is clear and "warm".
As to the sound... The Dolby (stereo) track seems very 'overdubbed'. The Dolby efect marks its presence strongly seeming that what we ear comes from a audio tape (!!!) not from a digital source. Why, why not a PCM stereo track? :( I've compared the CD recording of "The way we walk" (the Longs) with this DVD recording and the CD is still much better detailed and loud. The 5.1 track give us more spacial information but the overall sound quality doesn't improve. I guess I would rather leave it out a few extras and include a PCM soundtrack...
In conclusion, a great DVD, specially for all Genesis fans.I won't give it the 5 stars only for the audio tracks quality.

This is a must for all Genesis fans and fanciers. The DVD recreates all the old concerts, and their performance live as ever is brilliant. I urge you to use the different camera angles each time you play it so that you get a different perspective each time.I would have liked more really old stuff but the compilation is put together so that there is something for all.Hook it up to your hi-fi, close your eyes for one moment and you're there at one of the many of those great concerts of the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of Genesis, live! 5 Jun 2002
By A Customer
I have the two live cd volumes and this DVD had all of these tracks in the right order and more (particularly noteworthy additions to the playlist were Dreaming while you sleep and turn it on again). Sound and picture were crisp and the 5.1 soundtrack worked really well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Commendable, but not earth shattering. 28 Nov 2001
By Ria
Being a long term Genesis fan, and already owning a well worn V.H.S. copy of this gig, I was looking forward to this realese to re-live my memories of what proved to be a superb band at their peak. Musically the DVD proved great, and the fact that it is one of the only DVD's I know with multiple camera angles (outside numorous porn titles no doubt), shows there has been thought that has gone into this release.
If I have to take issue with it however, the fact that it is across two discs (half of the concert on one, half on the other) means there is an unwelcome pause in the proceedings.

a very good dvd,the concert is excellent and looks good on this dvd.the sound in 5.1 surround is also very good, a feeling of being at the concert is given with the depth of sound.
the multi camera angle facility is great fun- being able to chose different views of the concert is a real plus for this dvd- good to see things that aren't always perfect on stage is very interesting.
the interviews and slide shows are also good bonus material, and the commentary track is
all in all, excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genesis - The Way We Walk 14 Jan 2003
By A Customer
The surround sound on this album is superb. It really captures the acoustics of Wembley Arena - lots of bounce of the walls - a real live feel. It goes without saying, Phil Collins and the rest of Genesis are on top form. I doubt if the album would have the same impact if you don't have a surround sound setup.
