4 stars This 3 CD best of Genesis collection is a mixed bag. It contains prog and pop songs from Genesis so if you're just interested in one of the two genres, you'll probably get a bit annoyed. However, you can't argue that about Genesis being good musicians and whatever they play, they do it really well. If you're a fan of Genesis you'll have the CDs you're interested in but if you have none or just one or two of their albums, this collection is a good place to hear a cross section of their music. What I particularly like about this collection is that it contains a booklet that gives pictures of all their album covers and shows from which albums all of the songs on the CDs come from. That is the best packaging I've ever seen on a Best Of collection. It's certainly quality music but only about a third of the songs are prog so beware!
