A new Twist on Genesis Revisited!

OK, I'm a huge Genesis fan and Steve Hacket Fan. That does not mean I instantly love everything they put out. When I first heard that Steve was releasing another Genesis Revisited collection I thought....I'm going to pass on this one. I have all the rest of the "Revisited" collection. But when I previewed the collection here on iTunes I purchased it immediately. The Orchestra adds a new sound and dynamic to these old favorites. Each listen brings new sounds I had not heard during the previous listen. Not all songs are this way, but many are. Overall, a very nice collection and the Orchestra really adds a new sound that makes this a very desireable set. I recommend this to any fan! If you are new to this collection of Genesis Revisied I think you'll like it too.

Great, but...

I very much enjoy the "Genesis Revisited" albums, live albums, and concerts (looking forward to the current tour returing to Detroit next spring). And I was excited to see that this latest installment is with an orchestra. Indeed, the paring does not disappoint! The orchestral arrangements especially shine on Out of Body, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight, Shadow of the Hierophant, El Nino, and Supper's Ready. But as much as I love to hear the classic Genesis and Hackett solo material, I wish Steve & Co would have covered some of his brilliant, recent solo work here. For example, The Pheonix Flown from Beyond the Shrouded Horizon (2011), Corycian Fire from Wolflight (2015) and Those Golden Wings from At the Edge of Light (2019) would have sounded extraordinary with a live orchestra. Although this is a great album that any true hackett fan will enjoy, I also see it as a missed opportunity to present amazing, contemporary prog-rock to audiences who came to hear The Musical Box.
