I'd say the show five days earlier on 26/12/89 is even better. Quite possibly the highest peak of U2's career.

I don't mind listening to them, but importing them just feels pointless

I hate Genesis and give them a substantial portion of the blame for the backlash against prog rock. The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway is one of the worst prog albums I've heard in my life.

That must be quite a show Ax. I can't remember if I downloaded it once or not. I periodically lose all of my music, so I can't check

I've only listened to Gabriel-era Genesis. I have no desire to listen to non-prog Phail Collins-era Genesis.

It's the one that has the One Tree Hill performance that I rave about all the time as the best thing U2 or anybody else has ever done. It also has the best Streets ever.

As far as the Point Depot shows go, I think the NYE show is actually quite possibly the weakest, or at least tied with 27/12. 26/12 and 30/12 are mindblowingly sensational, while 27/12 and 31/12 are a notch below (which means they're still better than the entire Elevation Tour combined).

I believe I have that show too, on the basis of your recommendation.

Yes, it is simply

I figured, but I asked because, I've heard a few people listen to Collins-era, knowing that Genesis are supposed to be "prog" and afterwards going, what was so progressive about that?

Is it finals time or just a lot of tests at the same time?
