Genesis have raised the bar of what to epect in this best buy, yes you get a good interview in how they made the last truly great Genesis album. I found out that at last Genesis has dropped the Blues Brothers toe curling medley for this years tour. But a bit conflicting on facts that Mr Collins claims he had Face Value finished by the time they recorded Duke. Strange that? As Behind The Lines appears on Face valve, but you can forgive him as he gave them Misunderstanding, though he did offer In The Air Tonight, yeah Phil.
So you get the great Duke, you get Duke in 5.1. Three video's Duchess, Misunderstanding[ the one where he is on the phone ] and Turn It On. Also a world tour programme 1980[not so hot]. The best bit is......
Live At The Lyceum London 1980. It does look dated, but bear with it, apart from Mike Rutherford shady playing on the beginning of Dance On A Volcano.Read more ›
"Duke", in my opinion, is their best album with the right mixture of classy shorter tracks and longer instrumental powerhouses. "Duke's Travels/End" just can't be bettered, and throughout the whole album the SACD sound is thunderous, a huge improvement on past editions and formats. The DVD has Dolby Digital/DTS 5.1 mixes plus "live at the Lyceum" concert highlights. Highly recommended.
This is the best pop music i have heard in a long time! You can't help but sing along to tracks like "Behind the Lines", "Duchess" and "Turn in on again". Other tracks like "Heathaze" and "Cul-De-Sac" show off some of their more imaginative lyrics and the whole album finishes with two epic instrumentals which are just brilliant.
The DVD features are, to be honest, not up to much. Not by any fault of the DVD itself but because the videos for "Duches", "Misunderstanding" and "Turn it on Again" are just laughable and Phil Collins looks awful. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Phil but these videos are not interesting at all. What is interesting is the live footage and the interviews which give an interesting insight into the making and release of the album and also show how the songs translate onto the stage.
Defineatly worth buyin. Worth every penny. Pop Genesis at its' best. Invisible touch is worth a listen as well.

The SACD 5.1 sounds not right straight away. There is no dynamic range. When the sound is full, as it often is with Genesis, the top sounds brash and distorted. Read morePublished on 25 May 2014 by Stephen Hall
