In this era of MP3's, I wondered, should I give the gents more of my money. I mean, I've already got all the cd's why couldn't I take the track list and put it together on my iPod? Well, thinking I would buy it just complete my collection, I caved. And let me tell you ... I am glad I did. Most of the tracks have been expertly remixed by Nick Davis. I haven't found much depth in most remixed albums I purchased previously. But here, you hear stuff that you never knew was there. Pete & Phil’s singing is clearer you hear the lyrics much better. There are nuances to Phil’s drumming that I, as a drummer/singer listening, learning and playing these songs for 25 years, never heard before. When Mike is playing the bass pedals, you feel them, like you should! Steve’s guitar never sounded better. Firth of Fifth, reminds us of just how brilliant Tony is. I can’t really complain about what’s not here. For me, anything short of the whole catalog leaves something out. Arguably, you could have left off that which was on The Hits from ’99 but this is great. Among the few not remixed here which I wish had been, especially after hearing the other remixes, was Super's Ready. I assume it has to do with the 5.1 SACD remixes of Foxtrot, Nursery Cryme and The Lamb that are in the can and awaiting a release date. Nevertheless, I wish it would have been. And another thing, what ever happened to "Me & Virgil? How come that never shows up anywhere? All in all, this is quite awesome indeed! Why these chaps aren’t in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame escapes me! To wrap this up, if you have been a Genesis fan, you really do owe it to yourself to rediscover these great songs. If you haven’t been a huge Genesis fan or only know the 80’s Genesis, you should pick this up to acquaint yourself with the entire catalog. Enjoy!

I didn't think I would ever come across something like this! "Platinum Collection" is a three-disc compilation spanning through Genesis' entire career. The songs are played pretty much in reverse chronological order with the exception of "Calling All Stations", which closes the first disc. All the huge hits from the post-Gabriel/Hacket era are all here, but from the Gabriel/Hacket era, a couple of songs are excluded. I probably would have added "Watcher of the Skies", "Back in N.Y.C.", "In the Cage", "Get 'Em Out By Friday", "Dance On A Volcano", "Squonk" and "IT". Regardless of those missing songs, this is the best Genesis compilation ever!
