3 stars I can't say Genesis hasn't been an impressive band over the years, but you wouldn't think it judging by what made it onto their longs "shortlist" (poor joke I know.). There's not much more to say, but this isn't the Genesis I remember listening to.

Where's "Watcher of the skies" and "Supper's ready" from Foxtrot (1972)?

"The Knife" from Trespass (1970)?

Or "The Cinema Show" from Selling England by the Pound (1973)?

What I don't understand is why "Driving the Last Spike" (We Can't Dance) was even considered. "Fading Lights" has a sobering if not curtain-drawing effect and the "Old Medley" is understandably extremely good. "Domino" has perhaps earned its place as a taste of the new Genesis, but I don't think "Home by the Sea" did the same.

Overall a disappointment, yet at the same time the end of the true-Genesis aeon that needs to be distinguished in some way. Nevertheless, not all these songs are distinguishing.
