2 stars In the late nineties Steve Hackett conceived of the idea of re-interpreting some Genesis songs. He recruited a stellar cast, including John Wetton, Bill Bruford and Paul Carrack to help but the results are definitely mixed. One or two tracks benefit from this reworking but some, like The Fountain of Salmacis (a particular favourite of mine) and I Know What I Like are real disappointments.

For a better example of how the reworking should have worked, check out his live album The Tokyo Tapes.
