2 stars Whoops I wasted money on this non essential collection. Nothing much to say except really only get it if you are a fan of 80s Genesis. There are three videos from Trick of the Tail, which for the time are surprisingly entertaining, especially Robber Assault and Battery. In most of the videos Phil Collins adds a lot of humour to the videos, there is a video remix of Carpet Crawlers, but I think its pretty dreaful, it sounds as if they wanted played in nightclubs or something. There is alsao videos from the Ray Wilson period, pretty comprhesive but nothing for the Gabrial fan, except for that aforementioned tragic remix of Carpet Crawllers. Only three videos from the Trick of the Tail for the prog, all the rest is from their pop period, some songs arn't that bad In my opinion, such as Home by the Sea and Turn it on Again, but these videos are also very bittersweet moments for me because they had such potential I imagine how amazing they would have been if Steve Hackett had been in the band. There is also some fun videos such as Land of Confusion with the Spitting Image puppets, and I Can't Dance where Phil Collins laughs at himself. But other than these few minor redeeming features the DVD still only gets two stars, because again its only really for the fans of pop radio friendly Genesis or anyone really curious about the Trick of the Tail music videos.
