Prog Reviewer
4 stars An excellent summary of GENESIS' latter years, featuring some excellent and creative videos. Some are relatively conventional, featuring GENESIS playing their instruments; others are conceptual, with the video reflecting the song's theme.

I'm at a loss to understand why reviewers complain about the lack of GABRIEL-era videos. There simply aren't enough early GENESIS videos of acceptable quality. The conceptual videos are well-executed, while the 'performance' videos leave something to be desired, as they are generally mimed to the studio track.

The highlights, for me, are the earlier videos, particularly from 'A Trick Of The Tail', which have not had the exposure of later videos; though the later videos are better, I'm familiar with them.

One can't argue with either the value or the quality of this DVD. Nor, in my opinion, is the selection open to question. A good way to enjoy good, and sometimes excellent, music.
