3 stars This album is for Genesis what Playing the Game is for Gentle Giant and what Two for the Show is for Kansas. The end of their progressive rock career. Well! And Then There Were Three, Missing Piece and Monolith all had progressive elements but they are without a doubt more commercial than the three bands previous efforts.

The quality of Genesis songs are not to be discussed, I love their music. But I donīt think their live albums are essential listening. Good but not essential. Seconds Out is no exception to that rule unfortunately. I think the perfomance is quite passionless and not very exciting.

The real treat here is of course that you get to hear Phil Collins sing some of the Peter Gabriel classics like The Carpet Crawl, Firth of Fifth ( without the brilliant piano intro), Cinema Show,The Musical Box (Closing Section) ( why only the closing section to this beautiful song ???) and Suppers Ready.

While Phil sings the drums are played by Chester Thomson ( Zappa, Weather Report) who as usual delivers his best. But in the longer instrumental parts Phil gets behind his kit and plays with the others. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the musicianship on the album. Itīs just too streamlined.

UMUR | 3/5 |
