5 stars At first I was very pleased with this inspired live-album from the '76 and '77 world tours: it delivers GENESIS at their creative peak (including an excellent Hackett and Banks) and it contains a comprehensive 'best of 'tracking list featuring the emotional "Carpet Crawlers" (beautiful twanging guitar and warm vocals), a Mellotron loaden "Afterglow" (more than on the studio album), a compelling version of "Firth Of Fifth" (including that 'progrock #1' moving guitar solo), a dynamic "Supper's Ready" (great drums and organ interplay) and of course the splendid instrumental parts (like the drums-duet) on "Dance On A Vulcano" and "Los Endos". But gradually I started to miss some exciting songs from the albums "A Trick Of The Tail" and "Wind And Wuthering" like "In That Quiet Earth", "Eleventh Earl Of Mar" and "One For The Vine" along songs that GENESIS exclusively played like "Inside And Out", "White Mountain" and "The Knife. In '77 the BBC (UK) broadcasted a complete "Wind And Wuthering" tour concert and that one featured the "Seconds Out" tracks plus the missing tracks. I wish that once this will be an official release because once again the GENESIS aficionados have to search for bootlegs featuring that concert.

Conclusion: "Seconds Out" is a great live-album, I've rewarded it with 5 stars but in the future Prog Archives have to add a 6 category when the Genesis '77 BBC concert is released on CD!
