1 stars I had long since given up on Genesis by the time this album was released. But the idea of new Genesis playing long songs sounded promising, so when I received this promo in my record store, I gave it a listen. Good ol' Evolver, taking the bullet for the rest of the team.

The opener, and best part of this live set is an almost twenty minute medley of classic (read good) Genesis. Here we get pared down and watered down versions of what once made Genesis enjoayable. But too pared and watered.

As for the rest, someone should have told Collins Rutherford and Banks that when you take an uninteresting song, and stretch it out to over ten minutes, you don't get an epic, you get a long, boring song.

And there's a pointless drum "duet" at the end of the album.

Why?
