This is yet another repackaging of the debut 1969 Genesis album, "From Genesis to Revalation". The difference in this one is that an actual new set of recordings were unearthed, so there actually is music here that has never been heard before. As exciting as that may sound, it should be tempered by the fact that the songs are still the same. These are simply alternate takes of the same songs that comprised the original album, and these were by and large uninteresting songs that pre-date the real genius of the band.

There are one or two tracks that give a little nugget of something more to come. The lone single from the album, "The Silent Sun" is a capable 60s pop song. "The Conqueror" begins to explore the mythic themes the band delved into during It's early years. "Am I Very Wrong" is a haunting tune that shows lead singer Peter Gabriel's young talent for adding additional layers to a song simply with his vocal tones.

But there is usually a reason that a final version of a song is used as such. "One Day" is largely stripped of the horn section that made it so charming. By and large the differences are otherwise minor, and fail to make an otherwise uninteresting set of songs any more interesting.

True fans and collectors might find something in this piece, but unless you are someone needing to have everything that comes before the arrival of Phil Collins and Steve Hackett, you can probably skip this album.
