1 stars ******Warning-Record Company Money Making Scam**********

At least that is what the abomination should have been called. Not happy with stealing from it's fans in 1999 with Turn it On Again the hits Genesis in the spirit of the Turn it on Again tour puts this piece of excrement called originally enough Turn It On Again The Hits- THE TOUR EDITION(insert rolling eyes emoticon here). So what makes this one different? Well there are two disks now and added material from both the Gabriel years and one, Congo, from Calling All stations. Are you thrilled yet? They put the songs through some kind of remaster I guess to make them sound better if that is possible.

So no need to dwell on the Collins era hit singles if you like them you probably already own them so why buy this? Don't. I will mention what they did with Gabriel era songs. If you are a slight bit curious as to how the remastering might sound then there are a couple of songs like Counting Out Time and I Know What I Like actually do sound better and what could have been a real gem The Knife sounds great until they cut it off half way through the song! Unfreaking believable! Other things added like Trick of the Tail and Your Own Special Way again give over to the pop side of the band. How about a remastered peek at how Watcher of the Skies might sound instead? Nope they put Happy the Man! Are you kidding me?

Fortunately I didn't pay for this it was given to me as well meaning gift but wow maybe a better title is See Me on Ebay for $2.99 Soon. 1 star

*Note*I would suggest to anyone who wants to hear the remastered version of some the Gabriel songs (there are only 4) download just those songs and save a bundle. Oh and Carpet Crawlers is that stupid 1999 version ignore it

2 stars 2007 was not a great year for Genesis and record companies screamed for another album so this is it folks. Another compilation to coincide with the tour at the time. I believe it was sold at concerts but its a shame it has nothing new to offer apart from a remastered rendition of old singles and cuts every Genesis fan should already own. It includes the watered down Carpet Crawlers 1999 version too. Most of these songs have plagued compilations but with 2 CDs this time there's more to offer.

The best...

It includes some great tracks such as Duchess, my favourite, Turn It On Again, No Son Of Mine, Jesus He Knows Me, Follow You Follow Me, A Trick Of The Tail, Counting Out Time, I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe) and Happy The Man. That's about the only tracks worth returning to.

The worst...

The Knife (3:17) is butchered down by half it's length and is a tragedy as a result. Congo, come on that's Genesis worse album and nothing from its any good, and then theres the ones that even my wife likes to sing such as I Can't Dance, Invisible Touch, and Illegal Alien.

So overall some assorted good stuff and a whole swag iof dross to wade through. Again it's a collectors piece showcasing just how far removed from greatness Genesis had become.
