4 stars This compilation may not be every Genesis fans dream come true, but for me, this is basically the soundtrack to my childhood.

Of the two Genesis eras, I have to say I'm more of a Phil Collins guy, and rather enjoy their more commercial material. On display here is pretty much all their biggest hits from that era. Many of these came out when I was no more than four or five years old, and it was through my parents that I was exposed to the greatness that is Genesis. In fact, one of my earliest memories was seeing the classic video for 'I Can't Dance' when I was just a toddler on the kitchen TV.

Songs such as 'Turn It On Again', 'No Son of Mine' and 'Jesus He Knows Me' are some of the earliest songs I can remember from my childhood, and later songs like 'Congo' and 'Carpet Crawlers '99' are welcome additions to this compilation.

This may not appeal to every Genesis fan out there, especially the more prog-diehard fans, but this is a great album for the casual listener. Mixing nicely between rock and pop music, fans of any musical genre will find something to enjoy here, and the great thing about this era of Genesis is that EVERYONE must know at least one song from this track list, proving that there truly is a bit of Genesis in everyone.
