5 stars I usually try to avoid box set compilations as I find no need to rehash the songs that already exist in my collection. But Genesis Archives captures unreleased live elements of the best Genesis period. The first two disks consist of a live Lamb Lies Down...in its entirety. An outstanding performance to have in any Progressive listeners collection, even more so for the hardcore Genesis fan. Disk 4 contains songs from the "Genesis to Revelations" period that are really rather forgetable. Where Genesis Archives really stands out is disk 3 with unreleased live versions of some of their greatest masterpieces. The best being "Supper's Ready", previously only available performed live on Seconds Out with Phil on vocals. The remastered recordings are brilliantly executed, capturing the raw sound of the live performances, while supressing the noise and distortions typically present in live recordings of the era. This is a 5 star set for disk 3 by itself. The live version of "Lamb" is just icing on the cake, while the coaster that is disk 4 is easily ignored. The included booklet also provides a fun look back.

A must have for any prog collection.
