if you can't get enough Genesis......

by Jonathan Cardwell on 7/28/2011

I can't say I dislike this album, because I did listen to it on the web on sites like Rhapsody etc., and even after hearing it I bought it. Some of the reason behind that is my loyalty toward the band, but I honestly enjoyed listening to this slightly different take on the band. Phil, the lead singer, sounds a little different, like he's had throat surgery or something, and the keyboards, by Thee Tony Banks, are lacking a lot of dimension and mood that one can find on albums like THE WAY WE WALK VOL. 2: THE LONGS, and the drums, mostly played by touring member Chester Thompson, are rather dull, like he's hitting a lot of cymbals but not the drums themselves...and Mike Rutherford and/or the touring member Daryl Stuermer, on guitar, are barely audible except on the notoriously quiet popular fav "Hold On My Heart". But despite these shortcomings, the album is still Genesis, whose sound has become an integral part of my psyche after 24 years of enthused listening (INVISIBLE TOUCH was my introduction when my father had that CD in his collection; I was around 3 at the time). And I tend to get bored rather easily of all the different music out there, and that includes music by Genesis. If you're a hardcore fan, definitely pick this up. If you're at all passive about Genesis, you're probably better off picking something else off the market place. I should note that I no longer own this CD set, although I have considered buying it again, mainly because the packaging is so darn sleek looking, which you don't really get a good sense of just looking at a picture of it online...
