3 stars One must of course take this as an 'archives' thing, not as any balanced summary of Gabriel-era Genesis. But still I'm not very pleased. The third disc (with live versions of classics and some single rarities) is the only of the 4 that I would play more than just a couple of times. Wasting two discs for the Lamb concert doesn't really turn me on. Lamb sounds much better as a studio album, and there aren't any notable differences anyway. And the fourth disc... Well, there are some nice collector's items such as The Shepherd, Pacidy, or a demo of Dusk which is rather different (but also much worse) than on Trespass, but as the rest of the disc is demo material from the (pre)Revelations era, it is not very pleasing to listen. To me Revelations album itself is a cross between liking a bit or better to avoid, and if it gets below that level, it's nearly awful stuff, IMHO. _______ So, literally this would be **: collectors/fans only. But for the goodness of one disc I'm generous.
