4 stars If one can enjoy latter-day Genesis, then this is a collection worth having. The 12" versions are superb, really superior to the regular versions, harder and longer, slightly more progressive. They are less polished however (obviously), cluttered and if you don't like the originals at all, you will only be annoyed by the roughness of their 12" forms. I sometimes put the Invisible Touch 12" versions in a playlist (on my PC) with the rest of Invisible Touch minus the pop songs In Too Deep, Anything She Does, and Throwing it All Away. I believe that if that album was more like this, with say, one more good track, it would be considered a very good album by progressive fans (who are irked by even Follow You Follow Me appearing on ATTWT), so as you can see, the 12" versions interest me significantly. Other gems are the live versions, which are really interesting, the Dukes Travels being a really fun listen. The un-released Paperlate is actually a decent pop tune, it is amazing they didn't put it on perhaps Abacab or something, (I don't know when they recorded it) as it is a odd dig at Genesis fans, being a lyric on Selling England by the Pound "paperlate cried a voice in the crowd." Three point six or so, really, but worth owning as a Genesis fan, especially if you have a computer and can dissect it.
