Biography

The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.

Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

Product Description

Spanning 42 years, this 3-CD, 37-track set documents the band’s history with classic Genesis material compiled alongside selections from the solo careers of Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, and Mike Rutherford / Mike + The Mechanics. Genesis and their associated solo projects have accumulated a remarkable and undiminished series of accomplishments over the years, and have collectively amassed an incredible fourteen chart-topping albums as well as over two dozen more which reached the Top 10. In total, Genesis and the members’ related solo projects have sold more than 300 million albums worldwide. Chronologically ordered, R-Kive features the Genesis’s biggest hits including ‘Invisible Touch’, ‘Turn It On Again’, ‘Land of Confusion’ and ‘I Can’t Dance’. Along the way it also visits Mike + The Mechanics’ classics ‘The Living Years’ and ‘Over My Shoulder’, Collins’s ‘In The Air Tonight’ and his Philip Bailey duet ‘Easy Lover’, and Peter Gabriel’s ‘Solsbury Hill’ and ‘Biko’.

Trying to cover not only Genesis’s entire career, but also the solo careers of the key band members, on a 3-CD collection was bound to lead to some tough choices. Although many important songs from the Genesis discography have been left out, this collection does include some interesting solo tracks among the well-known hits of the 70s and 80s, which the three-man version had, as well as some fine examples of the earlier, five-man 70s progressive output.

But at whom, I wonder, is this collection actually aimed? The answer lies in that atrocious title and artwork, but I’ll come to that in a minute.

Timed to coincide with the Sum of the Parts DVD/Blu-Ray documentary, this collection shines a light on the extensive, and frankly staggering, talent the band incubated and nurtured. That’s no bad thing, but it’s difficult to imagine any potential for crossover remains. Gabriel’s fans no doubt know his history and have explored it. Ditto Collins’s vast fan-base. It is interesting to wonder what a Collins’ fan, who likes the foot-tapping disco of Easy Lover, would make of the magisterial art-rock of Supper’s Ready; or what a Gabriel fan thinks about the slightly misogynistic Invisible Touch. This compilation offers those contrasts and many, many more.

It is also difficult to believe that this compilation is aimed at new fans. A few years ago, Genesis released The Platinum Collection, which exceeds this set by some distance. What this new compilation really highlights is the fact that Genesis hasn’t put out any original work since 1998’s Calling All Stations. In truth, most older, Collins-centred fans regard We Can’t Dance as their last album, and that came out an awfully long 23 years ago.

Don't get me wrong, I love Genesis and it's member's solo material, but don't mistake me for a die-hard that thinks anything after Peter Gabriel left is a sin; the selection of songs on their own I can tolerate, the album assumes that because you like Genesis you are automatically a Phil Collins, Mike & The Mechanics, Steve Hackett, Peter Gabriel & Tony Banks fan too, which if you were indeed a fan, you'd already have all of their solo stuff. I'm sure trying to pick 3 discs worth of music from hundreds of songs is no easy task; however the album fails to become a 'greatest hits', instead it's a 'taster' or a 'connoisseur's collection', I think the official line is songs that were influential. It would suit an alien with no prior knowledge of the band or it's members, otherwise it all becomes very confused; one would assume a fan of Genesis would have explored the solo member's catalogue and picked their own favourites. On another issue the auto-rip suggests that some of these songs are remastered, something I cannot distinguish amongst previous CD versions of the tracks.

For a very casual Genesis fan.

Disclosure time, much as I loved Genesis back in the late 70s, and enjoyed their chart adventures in the early 80s ( I saw them on the Abacab tour), I drifted away from them after Mama and really don't play them much these days, other then the old blast of Suppers Ready. However having watched the recent documentary I purchased this pretty much on a whim when I was surprised to find how little I had of their catalogue digitally.

It's a slightly odd compilation in that it tries to cover solo careers as well as the band output. Which is perhaps pushing it for a band with a lengthy career and a penchant for long songs. Hopefully it will give wider exposure to those less high profile solo careers like Hackett and Banks - which presumably was the idea (Hacketts solo career was basically edited out of the documentary).

CD and up to the penultimate track on CD 2 this is what any older Genesis fan would expect - and its fantastic stuff. However then Easy Lover pops up, and for me from then on in it's downhill - I found their later pop career functional at best and I really don't think those songs have stood the test of time.

I'd rather have had some standout album tracks like Duchess (Banks favourite apparently) or Home By The Sea than the procession of mediocre hits and odd solo tracks that make up CD3.

Perhaps I should have gone for the Platinum Collection which has a better track listing but it's reverse chronological running order would have been annoying.

A good summary of their careers - but a missed opportunity.

A wonderful anthology of Genesis as a band and as individual members. Well done whoever compiled this track-list - it must have been very difficult as there are so many tracks to choose from but I think this is a very well-balance selection of Genesis from the beginning to the latest material. The sound-quality is excellent too - congratulations to the sound engineers......thoroughly recommended!

Until recent years I never really appreciated the depth of musical quality that Genesis and their off-shoots brought to the industry over the decades. Whilst the more commercially successful songs released in the 1980s were very good in their own rights a lot of the earlier songs in particular have even more substance to them. The more commercial Genesis songs and favourites of mine include Turn It On Again, In The Air Tonight, Mama, Invisible Touch, Land Of Confusion, No Son Of Mine, Tonight Tonight Tonight and I Can't Dance, whilst Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford contribute to the list with Easy Lover and The Living Years. The earlier and less commercial tracks recently added to my list include The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe), Carpet Crawlers, Ripples, Afterglow, Solsbury Hill and Follow You Follow Me. For me this album captures some of the best songs by a truly British Legend.
