5 stars The original press release described this album: "from the best live band in the world, the best live album"; very little to argue with there, then - superb versions of classic Gabriel era songs, together with newer material like Dance On A Volcano/Los Endos, Squonk etc; Steve Hacket's swansong with the band & the way we will always remember him. Worthy of note, too, as it is the first album to feature Genesis with Ex Weather Report/Zappa drummer, Chester Thompson, whose duets with Collins throughout bring a new dynamic to the live sound. There is not a bad track on this album, but Cinema Show stands out particularly, due to Banks's solo & Bill Bruford's crisp drumwork (the only track to feature him)- a suitable way to bring this particular era of Genesis to a close.
