In 2011 guitarist, singer, songwriter and short-term Genesis member Ray Wilson released a boxing set entitled "Genesis vs. Stiltskin" to celebrate his 20th stage anniversary. Three years later he released another release with the same concept under the same title. The title was as nonsensical then as it is now. Because here just as little was "battlet" as in 2001. Instead, on April 14, 2013, Wilson went with his band, a saxophonist and a string quartet to the stage of Polish Radio Hall at Warsaw's Radio Trojka Studios to play pieces from his solo albums, grunge band Stiltskin and some of Genesis. Wilson was in a good mood, and everyone played solid. But if you have Wilson's solo records, you don't necessarily need this release, because the Genesis interpretations are behind the originals. If you want to get an overview of the complete work of the Scotsman, you can't do anything wrong with this package, especially as the included DVD (same tracklist, making-of) offers an appealing optical documentation of the whole.
