Turn It On Again: The Hits

Founded in the late '60s, Peter Gabriel's Genesis was one of the first bands of classically minded rockers to emerge in the wake of Sgt. Pepper's. In 1999, the post-Gabriel/post-Phil Collins incarnation of the group is one of the few of that era to escape dino-rock extinction by re-imagining meandering prog as enduring pop. While only a dozen or so of Genesis' 30-plus years were as hit-packed as this collection's title suggests, the emphasis here is on the pop tunes that made them international stars. From 1978's "Follow You Follow Me" through 1992's "Jesus He Knows Me," this is a celebration of Phil Collins's canny pop sense (and perhaps of Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford's knack for persuading the singer to save his goopier tendencies for his solo career). For longtime fans, a recast "Carpet Crawlers," which unites vocalists Collins and Gabriel with producer Trevor Horn, will be a welcome surprise for those hungry for a '90s take on ye auld proggy sound.

No real surprises in the selection here, but the new cover of Carpet Crawlers is quite enjoyable. Peter and Phil both sing, with Phil taking the 3rd, highest verse -- each is in good voice. This recording has a stronger beat than the original. A Mike Rutherford rhythm guitar track, more typical of later Genesis, gives the song a new push, unlike the original, which relied on Tony Banks's keyboard arpeggios for drive. Most interesting is that the keyboards on this version are practically subliminal -- ironic in the context of Genesis's keyboard-dominated history. Otherwise a faithful rendition -- worth checking out.

There is possible to make a better GENESIS Hits Album, but the new THE CARPET CRAWLERS version is very nice.
