2 stars A big mistake. The decision of separate in two different albums the We can't dance tour with the addition of some songs of previous tours, was in my opinion a big mistake. TWWW The Shorts, includes only the non prog stuff which many pop hits. By this way, the album has nothing to do with a progressive listener. I always love Genesis because in every new album they put some progressive music, (not in the way of the 70's), but great progressive rock. So when they take out this tracks, I don't like it so much. The other problem with the album is that many of the songs are in an inferior level than the originals.

Land of Confusion and That`s all: The live versions are good, but the originals are far better.

No son of mine, I can't dance, Invisible touch: A good ones, at the same level than the studio versions

Jesus he knows me: Better than the studio

Throwing it all away: Exist better live performances of this song (for example the ones from the Invisible touch tour).

Mama: The Mama tour versions are far better. Here the track is not complete.

Tonight, tonight, tonight: Great version, different than the studio one. The problem is that it's shortened (only the first half), and has not the superb keyboard solo.

Hold on my heart and Into deep: Pure ballads, better in the studio.

So, only for fans. Two stars.
