4 stars Live - The Way We Walk Volume One - The Longs is the companion to the 'The Shorts'. As the title indicates these are longer Genesis pieces.

The Longs opens with an almost 20 minute medley that includes Dance on a Volcano, Lamb Lies Down On Broadway ,Musical box, Firth Of Firth (great guitar solo Daryl!) and I Know What I Like (that also includes a further medley of other Genesis tracks including Stagnation from 1970's Trespass).

The medley is then followed by Driving The Last Spike (10:17), Domino (11:20) , Fading Lights (10:54) Home By The Sea / Second Home By The Sea (12:16) and finally closing with a overly long Drum Duet (6:06)

Total time : 70 minutes.

The tracks are all well executed with good production and include the best (most proggiest) tracks from Genesis "Shapes", Invisible Touch and We Can't Dance.

If you get this then there is no need to consider Genesis "Shapes", Invisible Touch and We Can't Dance.

It is unfortunate that too many so-called prog fans (and Genesis fans) have dismissed most of Genesis' 1980's/90's product without giving it a chance. "The Longs" compares favourably with any prog album over this period.
