About this deal

The documentary also shows here how important these entirely different characters were for the band. In fact there's only a brief bit of You'll Be In My Heart and a few comments about Tony's classical projects and a few other songs from his solo career. Invisible Touch is given far too much time, but the band also seems to be very focused on the success here.

It tells of the band’s formation at Charterhouse (where Tony Banks, Peter Gabriel and Mike Rutherford were all pupils) in the late sixties and the release of their debut album “From Genesis To Revelation”.

The film recounts an extraordinary musical story, exploring the band’s song writing as well as emotional highs and lows and looks into the dynamic between the band members. A band that almost died in the mid-1970s with the loss of its leader ; it then survived a change of lead singer and style to storm the charts in the 1980s. Along with R-Kive and the re-release of Three Sides Live, the BBC documentary will also be released on DVD and Blu-ray under the title Sum Of The Parts in November 2014. However, Ed Goodgold, the first North America tour promoter, who had never been featured in a documentary before, is quite an interesting choice. Of course, the average consumer won't notice any of this, but does that justify painting a completely distorted picture of the band?

Hackett's screentime was also noticeably minimal and his fans were mostly supportive of his complaint, posting hundreds of comments hailing his music and career.However, it starts with the most current images from the 2007 tour, features a few statements (the misspelling of Daryl Stuermer as 'Steurmer' is already striking) and then takes a step back – to the Charterhouse. He stated: "All of the group's serpentine twists and turns were dutifully recorded in this 90-minute documentary", but he concluded: "It's an awesome tale in its way, yet the endless list of hit records and enormous tours eventually became tedious, and somehow Genesis managed to remain untouched by all the history going on around them. The first irritating bit is when Tony drops a slightly unfortunate comment about the Firth Of Fifth solo. The management doesn't understand a thing about the dynamics on the internet and the band apparently doesn't care about their fans.

The members of Genesis reunite to discuss the band's success and legacy in this musical documentary. Closed captions (CC) refer to subtitles in the available language with the addition of relevant non-dialogue information.It does contain some live footage I've never seen before and it's nice to see Ant get some attention. Peter Gabriel gives us the weirdest scene by standing up in the middle of a question to take a cup of ginger tea that was brought to him even though he had asked for coffee. The eighties and nineties were triumphant decades for Genesis with hugely successful hit albums and singles around the world such as “Genesis”, “Invisible Touch” and “We Can’t Dance”.

The credits reveal some other apparently unused interviews – Sebastien Lamothe and Marc LaFlamme of The Musical Box are named among others.Sum Of The Parts explores the dynamics of the group that has enabled them to survive changes of line-up, see their musical direction steadily evolve and maintain both group and solo careers along with their enduring popularity as evidenced by their hugely successful 2007 reunion tour.
