4 stars An intersting 'reimagining' of classic Genesis form Steve and a collection of the greatest prog musicians plus the RPO. Track listing: 1. Watcher of the Skies (8:40) NOT A PATCH ON THE ORIGINAL -ABOUT 2/5 2. Dance On A Volcano (7:28) SUPERB INSTRUMENTALLY BUT DODGY VOCAL 3/5 3. Valley Of The Kings (6:29) CLASSIC HACKETT 5/5 4. Déja Vu (5:53) OK BALLAD 3/5 5. Firth of Fifth (9:39) SUPERB ,THE BEST TRACK ON THE WHOLE ALBUM .LOVE IT.STEVE MAKES THIS MORE STATELY AND THE INSTRUMENTAL SECTION IS TO DIE FOR.HACKETT IS THE WORLDS GREATEST GUITARIST AND THIS PROVES IT!! 5/5 6. For Absent Friends (3:02) OK BUT NOTHING SPECIAL 3/5 7. Your Own Special Way (4:18) I LOVE THIS SONG AND THIS A LOVELY TREATMENT OF IT 5/5 8. Fountain of Salmacis (9:53) SECOND BEST TRACK ON THE ALBUM.BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL!! 5/5 9. Waiting Room Only (6:53) HATE THIS...ONE TO SKIP 1/5 10. I Know What I Like (5:37) NOT IMPRESSED BY THIS VERSION AT ALL 2/5 11. Los Endos (8:51) GREAT FINISH AS HACKETT TURNS INTO CARLOS SANTANA! 5/5

Theres about 40 minutes of this that is absolutely essential.There is some filler.Excellent sleevenotes.If you are a Genesis fan you will have it but it miight even convert a few non believers!
