4 stars Powerful first live album by Genesis. Almost every song is notched up a degree on the power scale. If you're looking for more of their pastoral side, this may disappoint you. Starting with "Watcher Of The Sky" you'll get the idea. During the quieter moments, the sound suffers a bit. But when Hackett comes roaring in, look out! They are as loud and raw as any rock band can be. The only song that suffers is "Get 'Em Out By Friday". It sounds to me a bit disjointed. In fact, not until the second half of "The Return Of The Giant Hogweed" does that song gain in sound quality. I can't fault the players though, they all come out on top. The highlights for me are the incredible version of "The Musical Box" and the best rendition of "The Knife" ever, Hackett OWNS this version! The only thing missing is "Supper's Ready", but at least there's Youtube! :-)
