3 stars Unlike the terrible "The Shorts" in vol. 1 of Genesis Live, this has some interest for progressive rock fans. Compared to the group's other live albums, this one doesn't match up in quality, skill, or significance. This is chiefly because the selection consists mostly of material from 1983-1992. Admittedly, it was their most progressive sounding stuff from that period, but it just pales in comparison to the amazing creations the group made back in the 1970s. The only really worthwhile song on this CD is the "Old Medley," consisting of excerpts from Dance on a Volcano, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, The Musical Box, Firth of Fifth, and I Know What I Like.

I would have to say that overall this is an enjoyable listen, but it is far from being essential. Thus it seems deserving of three stars. I you really want a great live album from Genesis, get Seconds Out and then consider getting Three Sides Live. They are both far superior to this, with a much better selection of material.
