Lavish 2007 twelve disc box featuring the first five installments in the Genesis remaster campaign (each double disc installment is digitally remastered and features a Hybrid SACD + PAL/Region 0 DVD), a 48 page case-bound book PLUS an exclusive bonus double disc set featuring an additional 13 non-album tracks (only available in this box)! This bonus double disc is also in the hybrid SACD plus PAL DVD format. The SACD features 13 remastered audio tracks on an SACD Hybrid disc which is playable on both normal CD and SACD 5.1 Surround players. The DVD features the same 13 audio tracks in DTS 5.1 Surround Sound plus two rare video extras including a music clip and an interview. From their Progressive Rock beginnings to their commercial superstardom, Genesis created some of the most challenging, creative and rewarding albums of their generation. This special edition not only offers bonus material, but also allows the listener to experience the album as never before! EMI.

There. Now that's out of the way, we have the box set where Phil Collins more than capably replaced Peter Gabriel, to the surprise of most, including his band mates. His voice is perfectly suited to 'Trick of the Tail' and this album is so good, it is like Genesis reimagined. 'Wind and Wuthering' follows suit and is the last masterpiece the band produced. Well, I could see adding 'Duke' to my essential Genesis list. All 3 of them are here. After that, there were some very good songs on albums that were just 'good'. For example, "Home by the Sea" and its instrumental sequel on the album that also has "Mama" (next box set please...). Rhino has done a very good job with these reissues though I am jealous that outside North America this box is available in Hybrid SACD. Don't understand why not here but the sound quality is still very good and the 5.1 mixes interesting. Some nice video bonus material, especially on "Trick" with 2007 Interviews. All in all, nicely packaged with a bonus disc of mostly already available material that is at least all in one place to round out the package. Docked a star because it is just not essential. That label goes with 3 of its discs though, so worth a look.
I should include a word about the visual elements included on the CD/DVD's. They, too, are excellent. I've read some negative things about the older filmed material, particularly that which came from American and Japanese TV broadcasts. Granted, they don't look all that great but, nonetheless, I'm really glad they're there. I'd much rather be watching a bootleg sourced from a worn VHS tape of an old performance than watching nothing at all and, to top it off, I thought that the less-than-perfect quality of the material added to its intrigue. Those VHS "age lines" are reminders of just how long these guys have been around, just how much road time they've logged, and just how many stages they've graced. Truth be told, I wish there was more of this type of material to watch and enjoy.
If one needs a cure for so-called "buyer's remorse," spend your money on this set and just see if you don't forget about its cost within the first three bars of Track 1!

So glad I bought my set for $79.99 a few years ago.
