4 stars It's not a coincidence that The Watch have chosen to include three covers of the 2 firts Genesis albums in this new release for those who have followed the latest tour of the band wich was a mix of songs from the band and covers of Genesis with many songs taken from the more acoustic side of Genesis on Genesis to Revelation and Trespass. So compare this new release with the previous albums, i have to say that the band has slow down the pace a little bit and that's why i think the three Genesis songs goes perfectly well with the songs of the band. I was a disappointed with their previous release, wich i think the band was pushing a little too much the same formula. Not that this cd is a major new direction, but maybe just a little fresh air to restart the machine. At some point i was thinking that maybe this is what Genesis would have sound if Gabriel was in the band again today. The singer's voice is so similar to the Gabriel's one that you can be confused if you hear the band for the first time. Nice cd!
