About this deal

Of course, the average consumer won't notice any of this, but does that justify painting a completely distorted picture of the band? Quality documentary with some good interviews, sadly post Collins and CAS has been omitted so no interview with Ray Wilson which might have been nice even a couple of minutes.

There is an interesting side trip, regarding the development of Collins's drum sound on Peter Gabriel's 3rd album.

Other important protagonists were left out as well: Armando Gallo, Paul Whitehead, who designed the band's first album covers, John Burns and David Hentschel, who influenced the band's early sound. The shit storm after the “exciting news”, the production of a documentary like this and how the situation was handled as a whole unfortunately only mean four things: the band won't do anything together anymore. Hidden in the heart of Russia, there is a Soviet-era city where thousands of people live and work behind barbed-wire fences monitored by armed guards. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. He stated: "All of the group's serpentine twists and turns were dutifully recorded in this 90-minute documentary", but he concluded: "It's an awesome tale in its way, yet the endless list of hit records and enormous tours eventually became tedious, and somehow Genesis managed to remain untouched by all the history going on around them.

Intensely driven, he overcame personal and professional challenges to secure his place amongst the greatest vocalists in history. Booklets are not the standard with DVDs and Blu-rays (for example Three Sides Live doesn't have one), but the contents seem more than a little strange here – almost like Satire. The bonus material is entirely composed of individual interviews and Steve Hackett is also completely absent again. Peter Gabriel’s departure in 1975 and then Steve Hackett’s in 1977 led to the release of the album “And Then There Were Three…” and a move towards shorter, more immediate songs.Turn It On Again is playing to the background images from the 2007 tour, the Invisible Touch Tour and the Misunderstanding video – all in the usual infinite loop. Fans don't really get to know or see anything new – until a snippet from the famous Roundhouse recordings. Invisible Touch is given far too much time, but the band also seems to be very focused on the success here. Tony's remarks about how everyone (besides Phil) was somewhat stiff back then, which also affected Steve's solo, is illustrated by a current interpretation by Daryl Stuermer in the studio.

While Gabriel's exit was accompanied by a short side trip into his solo career up until about 1980, Steve's solo works haven't been brought up at all apart from his explanation for his first album – even though he had been the first to release a solo album back then. However, it starts with the most current images from the 2007 tour, features a few statements (the misspelling of Daryl Stuermer as 'Steurmer' is already striking) and then takes a step back – to the Charterhouse. But then the fans pricked up their ears when it was revealed that the band had been working on a new documentary together. The documentary also shows here how important these entirely different characters were for the band.

Hackett's screentime was also noticeably minimal and his fans were mostly supportive of his complaint, posting hundreds of comments hailing his music and career. The eighties and nineties were triumphant decades for Genesis with hugely successful hit albums and singles around the world such as Genesis , Invisible Touch and We Can t Dance . Sum Of The Parts” is the official authorised story of Genesis made with the full co-operation of the band members.
