The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.
Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

Editorial Reviews

To further honor the supergroup's return, Rhino continues its complete upgrade of Genesis' extraordinary catalog with the second of three historic box sets that will ultimately cover their entire output to date. Spotlighting the "power trio years," "Genesis 1983-1998" encompasses two-disc, CD/DVD editions of four classic albums, plus one rarities compilation.

Customer Reviews

I think it's a much better balance overall.
David K. Myers
It's really more of a warning to those who are thinking they are getting everything buying these sets.
You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)
Plus a bonus CD/DVD set called Bonus Tracks 1983-1998 which is only available in this box set.

We now come to the second Genesis box set in the band's box set trilogy, "1983-1998," which covers (mostly) the "commercial peak" period for Genesis: hit singles, MTV, etc. Four albums---"Genesis," "Invisible Touch," "We Can't Dance," and the sorely-overlooked "Calling All Stations"---each one remastered & remixed by Nick Davis, with each album containing a bonus DVD of video goodies such as music videos, interviews, concert footage, etc. And this box set also includes an exclusive bonus disc & DVD of rare tracks and footage, as well as a 48-page book, with liner notes by the band's longtime music video director, Jim Yukich. Regarding the albums themselves, I rate "Genesis" and "We Can't Dance" a perfect five stars, while I give "Invisible Touch" and "Calling All Stations" a solid four stars. As for the sound quality, the albums all sound amazing, but the two that benefit the most in the new & improved sound quality are "Genesis" and "Invisible Touch." Nick Davis' magic mixingboard work especially comes to life on these two albums, the sound quality on both SO strong now, with the band's instruments having more power, and Phil Collins' vocals are more up front. "Invisible Touch" is a WHOLE NEW ALBUM, which is terrific since this is the album that Genesis have been unfairly judged by ever since it was released in 1986. To anyone who hates "Invisible Touch," I say listen to this new version. The sound has been totally opened up on this album in particular, and if you couldn't hear the excellent work that Phil, Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford did on it before, I have a feeling you will definitely hear it now.Read more ›

Genesis 10-disc box set entitled Genesis 1983-1998, released in November of 2007 here in the US (and a month earlier in Europe) is a MUST for all Genesis fans.
This 5-CD/5-DVD box set featured the second four titles to be re-released in an exhausting and long Genesis remaster campaign which took place in the last year.
The first inklings that a Genesis catalog overhaul was in the making was the release of the 3-CD Platinum Collection box set in 2005.
The albums in this box set include 1983's self-titled effort a/k/a The Mama Album (see my review of the deluxe edition), 1986's Invisible Touch (see my review of the deluxe edition), 1991's We Can't Dance (see my review of the deluxe edition) and 1997's somewhat weak finale Calling All Stations (see my review of the deluxe edition). Plus a bonus CD/DVD set called Bonus Tracks 1983-1998 which is only available in this box set.
Each album was painstakingly digitally remastered and remixed by longtime Genesis producer Nick Davis. Plus the albums in the set are double disc sets that features a CD (whereas in territories outside the US and Canada have Hybrid SACDs as Warner Music do not support Hybrid SACDs) and a DVD (which has each album in 5.1 plus interviews with Phil Collins, Tony Banks, Ray Wilson and Nir Z, videos and concert footage/TV documentaries). The discs themselves all look like their original US vinyl album counterparts with the labels (the custom picture labels that each album had).
The bonus CD and DVD on this set is called Bonus Tracks 1983-1998. We have all three B-sides from the Invisible Touch album with "Feeding the Fire", "I'd Rather Be You" and the superb instrumental "Do the Neurotic" (which was left off of the original album in favor of "The Brazilian").

Wow. In just an overdone, cliched word, wow. Stunning.

I'm not even going to get into an argument regarding the sound quality. Either you're going to dig the in-your-face sound or you're not. Personally, I dig it. It's nice to have the quieter moments upgraded a bit so that you are not turning it up to hear them only to have your ears rudely blown out by the loud sections. I think it's a much better balance overall.

Having said that, be forewarned that the first two albums here, Genesis and Invisible Touch, are not the same albums sonically. Hugh Padgham was a major force in the eighties, steering bands like Genesis and The Police to a very slick radio-friendly sound. It certainly helped them compete with the eighties sound at the time, but there were sacrifices made to the arrangements to get them there. For those addicted to Hugh's production work, stick with the original CD releases. They don't sound horrible, and maintain the context in which the albums were originally released.

However, if you want to hear some revelations, snag this up.

First off, both Genesis and Invisible Touch are now missing Hugh's almost Phil Spectorish wall of sound. The heavy heavy reverb has been toned down a lot, allowing for a greater clarity of sound and much more delicacy than I thought existed in the material. Some will argue that this deprives the music of some of the power, but I don't think so. I would compare the new mixes to the Naked versions of The Beatles' Let It Be. Hugh was great at providing all sorts of tricks in the studio, but again, at the expense of the original sound. Here, Nick has remixed the tracks with what sounds to me to be a more faithful rendition of the Genesis sound.
