Album Review

Originally, there were plans for two Genesis box sets — one covering the classic Peter Gabriel era, the other chronicling the band's development into hit-makers under the direction of Phil Collins. The Gabriel set was released in 1998, but instead of a second box following it in 1999, the single-disc Turn It on Again: The Hits appeared. Truth be told, it was a wise move, because even if the Collins set appears, there will be a market for a concise collection of hits, which Turn It on Again more or less is. Since Genesis had such a prolific career and had so many hits, it should come as no surprise that the compilation isn't complete, but it's a little disappointing to discover that such latter-day non-entities as "Hold on My Heart" (from the last Collins album, We Can't Dance) and "Congo" (from the post-Collins album, Calling All Stations) are included in favor of such fine singles as "Paperlate" or "Man on the Corner." But that's nitpicking, since all the big hits are here: "Turn It on Again," "Invisible Touch," "Follow You, Follow Me," "Tonight, Tonight, Tonight," "In Too Deep," "That's All," "Misunderstanding," "Throwing It All Away," and the list goes on and on. True, the sublime Gabriel number "I Know What I Like (In Your Wardrobe)" sounds completely out of place sandwiched between "Abacab" and "No Son of Mine," but it's nice to have it here. Similarly, "The Carpet Crawlers 1999," reworked as a duet between Collins and Gabriel, is a surprisingly effective re-recording, and a nice inclusion. It may not be enough to convince hardcore fans that they need Turn It on Again, but this album is really for listeners who've thought of Genesis as a singles act, and they're not going to be disappointed by this. [The two-disc, 34-track Tour Edition was also released as a digital download.]

Customer Reviews

Who is complaining? These sound great! Ask the band!

People always complain. They changed this, they changed that...whenever somebody remixes or remasters an album. YES! And thank God they did change some things. If you don't like the changes, then don't buy the CDs because they were "remastered" digitally (as every CD ever needs to be to be made into a CD). Instead, find some old records and buy those. Or worse, gets those cassettes out! That's clarity! Gee, it's rare to find those who complain about remixing and remastering who actualy heard the original master tapes. Until CDs the best way to hear a band's recordings was not by records or cassettes but by reel to reel tapes. Now we have the CD from the early 1980s. When I first bought my CD player in early 1985, I read articles about how so many albums may never appear on CD because the demand for the work to make them was overwhelming. So to have several incarnations already of some bands is just ludicrous! But I digress. Genesis' music was created before CDs and the first album of new material they created in the CD buying generation was Invisible Touch. They only made two albums after that, one was with Phil on vocals and drums the other had two other guys filling in. They did an extensive remaster of their whole catalogue a few years back (maybe 10-15 years ago?) and they sounded great! Very clean indeed. Better than the imports I owned and the domestics I owned. Now they decide to remix the whole catalogue in 5.1 mixes and also sell a downmixed version to CD and people again complain. Why? The old mixes, especially in the first couple Phil Collins' lead albums, buried his vocals in the mix. Compare anything from Trick of the Tail new mixes to the old mixes and hear for yourself. You can now hear all the words clearly! Duke is amazing! Yes, I probably won't be buying this collection as I have everything else they did in at least 3 separate encarnations of mixes and masterings, so this collections was not meant for me. However, if I didn't already have these mixes, I'd get them in this collection and have some songs that aren't already available and won't be until their complete remix/remastering releases come to market. And the final word is what the band wants you to hear, isn't it? I mean, they created the whole catalogue. And with Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks sitting in during the remixes, I'd say this is how they want you to hear the music today. So buy whichever versions make you happy. For me, it's these new ones. But I won't be placing the old ones on ebay anytime soon.

These are NOT the original mixes!

Buyer beware: Most of the songs on this collection are NOT the original mixes but remixes that were done in the last couple of years. These remixes appear on the expanded editions of Genesis' albums. Many of the differences are subtle, but I just wanted to let you all know.

Rare PG here

No doubt this is a great collection of Genesis music! I’m kind of surprised that no one is talking about “The Carpet Crawlers” though? This track alone is worth the price of admission. It is so good that I had to stop what I was working on and find out if it was Peter Gabriel’s voice on it. I knew it had to be Gabriel because his voice is so incredible. I remember some reunion talk way back when this was first released. So I did a little research and found out that this was the only song they did during this short reunion It's a studio recording where Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, and Steve Hackett re-did their parts to the song with Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks. Do yourself a favor and invest in this gem. If you are a PG fan then you will hear why this version is a must have!

Genesis started life as a progressive rock band, in the manner of Yes and King Crimson, before a series of membership changes brought about a transformation in their sound, into one of the most successful pop/rock bands of the 1980s and 1990s. In addition, the group has provided a launching pad for the superstardom of members Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, and star solo careers for members Tony Banks, Michael Rutherford, and Steve Hackett. Their roots go back to 1965 and a pair of rival groups,...
