Review by Queen By-Tor
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars A whole era contained in one nice little box!

Reviews for each album can be found elsewhere, this is a review of the whole thing (and my views on the new DVD discs that accompany each album). I finally bought this set after much debating with myself, being that I'm a large fan of the Garbiel era Genesis and actually hadn't heard anything past Selling England By The Pound (so I can't comment on how the new mixes sound compared to the old ones). Not only am I pleasently surprised with the music (more on that in later reviews), but the boxset as a whole was very much well worth the investment. For those who haven't made the switch to CD or simply don't have these albums this is a great way to start. For those who already own these albums, I still recommend this set. Complete with a 48-page book that documents each album in the set and a bonus cd/dvd of unrealeased (on cd anyways) material, this one is great for all the collectors.

As for the recently released CD/DVD remasters of all the albums, they are also quite worth it! I originally thought that the only difference between the cds and the cd/dvd sets was the fact that the music was also on dvd (whoopie....) and it cost about twenty (Canadian) dollars more. I wasn't exactly sure who'd go out of their way to buy that. As it turns out, the Dvds contain promo videos, (a lot of) live material from the corresponding tour of each album or TV bootlegs (except, I think, Abacab has no live stuff on it) and tourbooks as well as the music being on the dvd as well. That, my friends, is well worth it.

So, in conclusion, this one's for those who need these albums (whether they've never heard them, or just don't have them on cd), collectors and people who have enough money to afford the darn thing. Lucky me, I found it for relatively cheap, and it was apperently just about to go up in price (by a lot). Anyways, 3 stars, definately good an worth it! But by no means essential.

4 stars Again - I will comment only the extra tracks (disc 11) because all the rest were commented, reissued, remixed, remastered etc hundreds of times. Unlike the 1970-1975 box set, this time there's no discovery here. All the 1976-1982 extra tracks were previously officially released and are more o ... (read more)

4 stars Unlike some people, I love all versions of Genesis - Peter, Phil, or Ray. I always felt it was the music that made the difference. This is the mid period Genesis albums, including the classic post Peter albums A Trick of the Tail and Wind & Wuthering. Some have said that this is just a loude ... (read more)

1 stars Want to hear an album like Trick in all its glory? Buy a used, minty $5 LP at a store near you and crank that beauty. One of the best productions in prog history. Here, it sounds just like any other modern mix that tries to put the detail of every single instrument up front and sacrifices overal ... (read more)

2 stars The music can be discussed in the sections for the individual albums. I'll be discussing the mixing/mastering here. Since I'm in a hurry, I'll make several points: -Some songs are great: Squonk, Los Endos, Me And Virgil, Match Of The Day, You Might Recall, Me & Sarah Jane, etc. -Some songs ha ... (read more)

4 stars Well where do you begin . This lavish and depending on where you decide to buy very expensive set may seem to some a gamble. The good thing is that all the albums have a seperate release as well. First things first I suppose to fully appreciate these remixed albums is to own either a dvd or s ... (read more)

5 stars I won't make a complete review of it. But I just wanted to say that the digital remastering is excellent. You'll hear details in the music that you never suspected to exist in the first place. And what the remastering has done for the vocals is simply amazing. It even makes you wonder at times ...
