The inside series of DVDs are an interesting snapshot of prog history for the progressive rock fan. It is worth noting that there are a series of "Inside" DVDs available, including Pink Floyd, Van der Graaf Generator, Yes, Supertramp, Emerson Lake and Palmer, and of course "Inside Genesis". Each DVD is in Dolby digital 5.1 and DTS so the sound is incomparable.

The Inside series is an independent critical review featuring rare archive footage much of which has been previously unavailable on DVD. Genesis clips of Suppers Ready, Return of the Giant Hogweed and The Musical Box are delightful and to see Gabriel in his theatrical guises is unforgettable.

"Inside Genesis" looks at the years 1970 to 1975 and of course we are treated to rare film clips of the classic Genesis lineup with the indomitable Peter Gabriel at the helm.

Musicologists of varying backgrounds critically assess the music to discover the essence of the band. It is a very brief look at the band as are all of these DVDs of the "Inside" series, clocking just over one hour in length. Therefore it is more of a taster for those new to Genesis or for those who just want to look back at the golden years of this quintessential prog rock band.
