3 stars One of the worst most dissapointing and pointles live album i ever heard and wasted money on, they made the songs longer slower and more boring then the studio versions in every way thers no action, eccept for the opening Watcher of the skies which is atleast on par and a litle rawer then the studio the rest like Get 'Em Out By Friday, The Return Of The Giant Hogweed and The Musical Box yust bores me why they even included Get 'Em Out By Friday is a real mystery too me it was the worst song on Foxtrot and this even longer and by far worst version is yust horrible dull. It dont help that the album ends with a totaly destroyd version of The Knife, this live verion is yust horrible in everyway posible, i liked the studio version but on this one Hackett whos usualy a good guitaris have changed all great guitar parts and the result is yust terrible, it sounds like a butchered version of the orginal with everything good taken away. Well 2 stars is generus for this album the only thing of intrest is the ok version of watch of the skies and The Return Of The Giant Hogweed, The Musical Box are okay but way overlong and dull. the other 2 songs i simply cant stand. This album shows that the rumors was true Genesis live without Gabriels masks and make ups was a real dull band, no surprise peopel where falling asleep on the shows. If you want early live Genesis buy a DVD, this album is not whort the money. 2 stars, Collectors/fans only.
