Ignoring the largely unsuccessful Calling All Stations album (which they did, nothing from that album was played), the setlist consisted of what Collins suggested were "obvious choices". Their best chart-performers are all here, from their breakout "Follow You, Follow Me" (which Collins sang WHILE drumming!) to later hits "Invisible Touch," "Land of Confusion," "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight," and "I Can't Dance". All are performed faithfully, with Phil's loving flourishes.
But Genesis was always much more than a hit machine; some of their best progressive work is represented here as well. Epics "Domino" and "Home By The Sea" are played with an intensity that made both hardcore fans and casual fans of the pop hits sit up and take notice. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the show was the choice of the opening song, they break into the show with a melding of "Duke's Intro" and "Behind the Lines" from the well-love Duke album. flowing into their classic standard "Turn It On Again" from the same album, and later returning to "Duke's Travels" to complete the instrumental suite from Duke.
Perhaps the most exciting moment, however, comes after "Follow You, Follow Me." Phil puts down the mic and remains on drums, pounding out a rhythm that quickly explodes into the instrumental portion of "Firth of Fifth," the oldest number on the setlist. This morphs into an outstanding version of "I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)" that brings the audience to it's feet.
This album is really best when accompanied with the DVD, as some of the visuals (Collins goes nuts with the tambourine as a 30-years-younger version of him does the same on the jumbotron), but this serves as a good representation of what was an excellent tour. Their well-rehearsed precision left little room for improvisation, so this was the setlist they used for the entire tour. Having seen the show four times, listening to this disc leaves me hungry for more. A must for ANY Genesis fan.
