At least that is what the abomination should have been called. Not happy with stealing from it's fans in 1999 with Turn it On Again the hits Genesis in the spirit of the Turn it on Again tour puts this piece of excrement called originally enough Turn It On Again The Hits- THE TOUR EDITION(insert rolling eyes emoticon here). So what makes this one different? Well there are two disks now and added material from both the Gabriel years and one, Congo, from Calling All stations. Are you thrilled yet? They put the songs through some kind of remaster I guess to make them sound better if that is possible.

So no need to dwell on the Collins era hit singles if you like them you probably already own them so why buy this? Don't. I will mention what they did with Gabriel era songs. If you are a slight bit curious as to how the remastering might sound then there are a couple of songs like Counting Out Time and I Know What I Like actually do sound better and what could have been a real gem The Knife sounds great until they cut it off half way through the song! Unfreaking believable! Other things added like Trick of the Tail and Your Own Special Way again give over to the pop side of the band. How about a remastered peek at how Watcher of the Skies might sound instead? Nope they put Happy the Man! Are you kidding me?

Fortunately I didn't pay for this it was given to me as well meaning gift but wow maybe a better title is See Me on Ebay for $2.99 Soon. 1 star

*Note*I would suggest to anyone who wants to hear the remastered version of some the Gabriel songs (there are only 4) download just those songs and save a bundle. Oh and Carpet Crawlers is that stupid 1999 version ignore it
