3 stars Part two of the discs that document their 1992 tour, this consists of "The Longs", GENESIS songs of a more epic scale.

It starts of with an old medley of their 70s output, songs that really shouldn't be played in medley form. It really annoys me when they only play segments of these tracks.

Otherwise the album consists of the longer songs from their albums between 1983 and 1991. Not their best epics but good compared to the rest of these albums.

All Live recordings I've heard by GENESIS, at least those recorded after GABRIEL left, ends with their "Drum Duet" and then "Los Endos", sometimes with bonus tracks afterwards. This is an exception though as it ends after "Drum Duet". That could be a nice break from the formula but something is amiss, "Drum Duet" is not a fitting ending track. Sure, they don't have to pick "Los Endos" but maybe "Afterglow" or "As Sure as Eggs is Eggs", given the time of the recording "Fading Lights" may have fitted. Of course all these three songs can be difficult to segue into from the energetic "Drum Duet".

Frasse | 3/5 |
