3 stars I'm a fan of all things Genesis. That includes the Peter Gabriel Era, The Tony Banks Era, and the Phil Collins Era. I don't understand the hate for this album. It's title contains the words "The Hits". That means no Supper's Ready, No Musical Box because they were not hits. Favorites, some of the best that Genesis has ever done, yes, but a hit as in chart success, no.

Here Genesis collects some of the most radio friendly songs of the latter years with 2 songs from days long gone by with Peter Gabriel. Actually, Carpet Crawlers is rerecorded with both Gabriel and Collins taking a shot at the lead vocals and some modern percussion added to boot. A minus for this song is that too much of Steve Hacketts guitar was left on the editing floor, but again its a hits album. The rest are either radio / MTV hits with a few rock hits thrown in. This is a pop album and not a prog album, but a good pop album at that. It's a good way to get Genesis hits w/o getting the 10 of so albums that the hits originally came from.

3 stars.
