5 stars This is a p-e-r-f-e-c-t live album, only this (UK) version should be called Four Sides Live. Tony, Phil and Mike play live better than in the studio, looser, with more feeling, energy and power. Yet paradoxically, the live versions are perfect renditions of the classics songs. The sound is amazing live, it's brighter somehow, or maybe it's just my imagination. You get to hear Collins revive the old classics from the Gabriel era, which is a real treat, and you get the amazing meddley centerpiece which lasts about 16 minutes (too short) and it's pure bliss for Genesis fans. Now - the US version of the album has 3 live sides (thus the title) and a very interesting studio outtakes 4th side. It contains a couple of real gems (why is it that Genesis outtakes from this period are sometimes better than album tracks?) like Evidence Of Autumn - a true mini-epic in the classic Genesis style, the wonderful little pop- prog tune Paperlate, and the melodic You Might Recall that makes me sing along every time, and pretend I am onstage with Phil! If you are a Genesis fan, you NEED both the UK and the US versions, take my word for it.
