Album Review

The second of two matching live albums pulled from Genesis' 1992 tour, The Longs is, at its title suggests, a compendium of the band's longer (and generally more fan-oriented) material. The shorter pieces which had kept the band so well supplied with hit singles over the past decade were then held over for the equally aptly titled The Shorts, gestures that might have widened the albums' appeal among those people who only wanted a souvenir of their favorite moments, but which left fans wanting to revisit the entire concert with no alternative but to purchase the accompanying The Way We Walk Live VHS. Half-a-dozen tracks include fine recountings of "Driving the Last Spike" and "Fading Lights," and the two-part "Domino" and "Home by the Sea," and all remind us that, for all their success as a singles act, it is with the symphonic epics that Genesis really hit their stride. However, one could possibly take exception to the fact that one of the remaining numbers is, in fact, a medley — which, when the songs are broken down into their composite parts, are scarcely any longer than any of the cuts on The Shorts (more pertinently, these are the songs that longtime fans probably cheered the loudest for — "Dance on a Volcano," "Lamb Lies Down," "The Musical Box"). The final cut, meanwhile, is a Phil Collins/Chester Thompson drum duet, which might have been most exciting in concert, but really grows tiresome on the home stereo.

Where the Hell is Vol. 2 The longs?

I have this album which is great by the way, but I am unable to download Vol.2 the longs! What the hell? Could some one get off their ARSE and make it available!

Thank you!


This is a good live album but the writeup is incorrect. This is as the title suggests the shorts. The longs is a much better album and I would love to see it offered thru Itunes....

Best Genesis Concert Album Ever.

This is the CD with all of Genesis' biggest hits performed LIVE at the peaks of their career. The other "Longs" CD is more for the folks who prefered their earlier, progressive music. And the 2007 concert CD is for those who prefer reunion shows to see how much everything has changed. For you sensitive, P.C. types, I'll mention that Phil drops an "F-bomb" during "Invisible Touch" and yet it escaped an "Explicit" tag, go figure.


Formed: 1966 in Godalming, England

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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,...
