4 stars This is definitely not the best Genesis-dvd, to start with. For one reason or another it doesnot work to watch 32 videos clips at one time, especially not when some of the songs are below par for a band like Genesis (Man on the corner, Keep it dark, Illegan alien). But having said that I have to admit that the positive sides of this dvd are far greater than the negative sides. Because you can learn about the many sides of Genesis during the Collins era. There are very serious videos (No son of mine, Many to many, Mama, Tonight, tonight, tonight) with good artistic filming, great atmospheres and a good balance between the lyrics and the video itself, rather dull videos showing the band mimicing the songs in studios (In too deep, Home by the sea/Second home by the sea) and quite a few hilarious ones. And the last ones are the gem of this collection. Watch again 'I can't dance' (by far not their best song but what a good video!), 'Anything she does' (even Banks and Rutherford can act in a comedy...) and, above all, 'Jesus he knows me'. It is one of my all time favourites when it comes down to videos, it is absolutely great!! And then listening to songs like 'Follow me, follow you', 'Misunderstanding' and 'Congo' isn't that bad anymore. So actually I find this a very good compilation but I will not wacth it again in one time....
