Overview

The material comprising the two discs of Genesis Revisited II ranges from 1971's Nursery Cryme to 1976's Wind & Wuthering, for which, fueled by nostalgia, guitarist Steve Hackett ambitiously attempted to re-create his favorite Genesis tracks. Helping Hackett with his 2012 vision, ten vocalists were recruited to cover the parts originally sung by Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel. While the femininity of Amanda Lehmann and husky voice of Opeth's Mikael Åkerfeldt change the songs significantly, others are perfectly suited, like Phil Collins' son Simon, who sounds nearly identical to his father. Obviously, these versions can't compete with the classics, but Hackett's technical skills are more astounding than ever and many additional details -- such as the replacement of Mellotron parts with a live orchestra -- are nice touches.
