3 stars The first official live album release with Peter Gabriel at the helm. Whilst the band were still in the pre Selling England By The Pound era this live release does bring us up to date with their vintage early progressive albums. The best tracks off Live are Musical Box and the opener Watcher of The Skies. Superlative verisons and to this reviewer you cannot drink in enough of these two songs. The band are very much in sync, slightly different from the original works but hardly noticeable. There is a pleasant tempo to WOTS and Bank's keyboards work a treat.The Musical Box is the perfect platform for Gabriel to show his fragile and soulful voice. Collin's drumming is excellent as is all five member's input.

Now the downside is the song choices of the remaining three tracks. Get em Out By Friday and " Hogweed" probably the weakest songs off the respective studio releases. The Knife equally could have been better replaced by Looking For Someone or Stagnation from Trespass. Overall though a great snapshot of Gabriel era Genesis.
