3 stars Of any of the works of Genesis, why do I choose to review this 3 song EP? Primarily because it is a turning point in the bands' career. Side one with" Match of the Day" and "Pigeons" gives us a glimpse of what's to come. Side two shows us what was with "Inside and Out." The first two songs are very British in their humour and it is understandable that they were omitted from the Wind and Wuthering album during those sessions. They would not have fit with the atmosphere of the rest of the pieces and more importantly : the two songs were not that interesting anyway. "Inside and Out" on the other hand, was and still is a beautiful piece of music. I understand Steve Hackett's frustration when the decision to include "Wot Gorilla" instead of the aforementionned song. I like "Wot Gorilla" pales in comparison... To me, "Inside and Out" had what I enjoyed about Genesis. Melodious 12 string guitars with exquisite vocal harmonies ( Collins at his best!), Banks' beautiful textures and the various sections creating different moods. This song is the EP's saving grace. The song is included in the Archives- Vol. 2 so unless you are a die-hard collector, you're better off getting the CD Boxset. Nonetheless, I'm still giving the EP 3 stars.
