5 stars This is one of the greatest live albums of all time as far as I'm concerned. Gabriel wasn't here however Hackett was still with the band adding his magic to the music. Collins still sounds a lot like Gabriel here and he does a stirling job with the vocals. "Squonk" is a really strong opening followed by the ethereal "Carpet Crawlers". "Robbery, Assault and Battery" is done here in a way that I quite like given that I didn't much enjoy the original studio release of the track. "Afterglow" is simply beautiful. "Firth of Fifth" with it's many nuances is exceptionally well done. I've always loved "I know what I like" and the short "The Lamb........" piece here is dramatic and a fine bit of music. From the "Musical Box" the excellent "She's a Lady................." section is covered - simply stunning. The gigantic "Supper's Ready" is perfectly carried out on this live album. No mean task. Sometimes I prefer to listen to the Gabriel original and sometimes I prefer to listen to this version. "The Cinema Show" is sublime here as is "Dance on a Volcano". A piece of "Los Endos" ends this live set perfectly. Relating to Genesis this is the only live album that I will be reviewing as I feel it is easily the best of the live recordings from the band. A 5 star rating from me as it is a giant of a live album.
