3 stars Genesis Archive #2 is a very good box set. The sound is very good and most of the tracks are well chosen.

There are, however, some inconsistancies. Match of the Day from the Spot the Pigeon EP is missing as well as many of the live cuts from the 1980s that were on 12" singles and flip sides of 45s, as well as the extended versions of Mama and Its Gonna Get Better. Where are all of the Ray Wilson B- sides? Yet they included four 12" remixes from the 80s. If this was supposed to put out all the released materiael in one package, then they have failed.

What they have here, though, is very good. The live cuts are excellent choices, especially Ripples, the Brazillian, and Duke's Travels. It's wonderful to have Inside and Out and On the Shoreline on CD finally.

What this set has is quite good, although I could easily have lived without the 12" remixes. Because of that, I rate this one four stars. Recommended for Genesis completists.
