Face Value - 1999

Cover: Face Value Cover: Face Value

This documentary delves into the period where Collins left Genesis and began working on his first solo album, taking his love of black music, and infusing it with his working class English background and the emotion of his recent divorce.


Standard Classic Albums quality, very good recent interview video, with decent black levels, sharpness and colour. Older archive material from the Genesis days and footage from the 1980 recording session and early tour obviously look worse, often soft with oversaturated colour, though never unwatchable.


I'm running out of ways to describe documentary audio - I've got to stop reviewing this series! Well recorded interviews, and the live concert audio has been captured nicely; this is actually one of the better Classic Albums for sound quality.

Strangely, when Collins is playing drums to demonstrate the parts at the end of In The Air Tonight, they're ringing quite horribly. I would have expected his drum tech to have tuned them a little tighter..
