Essential kit for us old Genesis fans
on 13 December 2004
Inevitably this collection hardly involves Gabriel, though there is a marvellous 1999 version of Carpet Crawlers at the end, almost as 'lip service' to the master.
The rest is pure post-Gabriel stuff but fun to see. As video emerged from the swamp to become the art-form it is today, these Genesis videos show everything, from the brilliant to the completely dire; there are no depths which Collins will not plumb; just watch Illegal Alien and try not to cringe!! But it's good harmless fun and, as a catalogue of the output of the best band ever, you realise why they made great albums rather than great pop singles. What makes the DVD great is the quality of the sound rather than the pictures; the DTS and 5.1 are extremely well done and, if you get sick of watching, just switch your screen off and get on with reading your paper or doing your tax return!
