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.
