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

4.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity - for a different reason 26 July 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Several people have commented on the odd track selection for this compilation and have offered different explanations for the choices made. There is actually a very clear explanation. This compilation consists of all A-sides of commercially released UK singles from 1970 (The Knife) up to the first Ray Wilson single (Congo) plus No Reply at All, which I don't think came out as a single in the UK, but was released as a single nearly everywhere else. I have no explanation for the running order which seems to be roughly reverse chronological.
The reason I say that this was a missed opportunity is that there is space remaining on these discs for the two other Ray Wilson-era singles: Shipwrecked, and Not About Us. I suppose these tracks have been ignored deliberately and will certainly not appear on the current Genesis tour, but why do 95% of the work involved in making a complete collection of Genesis singles and then not finish the job?

4.0 out of 5 stars Genesis - A land of confusion indeed! 4 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
Genesis have gone from symphonic progressive rock through to the rock/pop genre over many years. The sudden change shocked the public, but generated more publicity and consequently the band gained success. It is this success that this compilation mainly focuses on. The chosen songs are mostly the hits the band had in the 80s where Phil Collins was lead singer and drum player - Land of Confusion, Mama, Invisible Touch, Turn It on Again... et cetera. If you preferred the band when Peter Gabriel was lead singer in the early 70s, this album is not for you: only 2 songs on this CD contain him (the reason being due to the lower popularity of the band when he was in it). The sudden change in genre was a positive thing, as the band sold records in millions, topped the charts with their singles and were a great live band to see. While Tony Banks, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford are not able to show their full potential playing their instruments, they are consistent. This album does live up to its title - the songs are hits. They are well-written songs, sung powerfully by Phil Collins as he does so well. I would reccomend this album to anyone who wants the hits of Gensis and to anyone who is not familiar with their pop/rock phase.

5.0 out of 5 stars really looking forward to the tour dates 18 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
This fathers day gift was a great reminder of what a truly innovative band

Genesis were. This is a great value set of CDs with loads of those tracks I had forgotten about from the 70's. And nice to have after that interesting appearance on 7 ages of rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's called "The Tour Edition" for a reason.... 19 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
....I can't really comment on the sound quality on the remastered tracks, but as for the complaints that this isn't a representative "Hits" compilation, I would argue that perhaps that isn't the intention for this release.

I've got tickets for the upcoming Old Trafford gig and I'm hoping it will confirm what I suspect....that this is simply a compilation of the songs performed on the reunion tour in their not-live, album-recorded form.

I've also not got many of the earlier albums (my collection only starts with Trick of The Tail, but I'm only 28, so give me a break on that!), but for anyone wanting a good collection from across the 40 years Genesis have been recording and producing music, I'd think this would be a good choice.....especially if you don't want to shell out nearly £100 for the remastered box set!

Format:Audio CD
I must admit that, while I was familiar with many of the songs from Phil Collins' solo career, I could not say I knew much about Genesis, the band that launched his career. Of course on listening to this CD I realised that in fact I had heard most of these absurdly catchy songs in the past, as they are the kind that get frequent airplay. Genesis, of course, changed dramatically when singer Peter Gabriel left and was replaced by drummer Phil Collins. They went from being one of the most prominent progressive rock acts to being experts at recording short, commercial songs. Only two Peter Gabriel-era songs appear on here, I Know What I Like and The Carpet Crawlers. Classics you must be familiar with like I Can't Dance and Follow You Follow Me are on here, of course. This compilation basically traces the history of Phil Collins' period Genesis with songs like Hold on my Heart and In Too Deep being typical of the kind of music Phil Collins has been associated with during his solo career. If you want to check out what early, progressive rock era, Peter Gabriel fronted Genesis sounded like then I suggest you get Selling England by the Pound.

1.0 out of 5 stars Squashed As Flat As A Roadside Hedgehog 18 Aug 2007
By Baz
Format:Audio CD
I have to echo many of the previous comments about these recordings being incredibly compressed and over EQ'd in the higher frequencies.
I am all in favour of remixing old vintage tracks to give them a fresh and modern sparkle, and to correct flaws in the original mixes. But sadly, with these recordings, that has not been achieved.

Where there is undeniably a gain in clarity, there is also a truely massive loss in dynamics, warmth and realism. At times (for example on 'That's All') Collins's drums sound really nasty and harsh - a complete contrast from the sound on the original album's mix. This is hardly 'progress'.

Many of us have spent our hard earned money on a decent sound system so we can enjoy our beloved music in as pristine quality as possible. Sadly, with these productions, even nice systems just sound like cheap midi 'hi-fi's!

If you think that 'newer' automatically means 'better', then you will think these recordings now sound better. Ditto if you think 'louder' means 'better'. Otherwise, stick to your flawed-but-ultimately-nicer 1994 masters (which really were an improvement over the originals).
