And this one's not even the worst IMO!I decided to seek out this poll for some alternatives to this version...I thought maybe someone had a better choice...this disc is so compressed it must be played at very low volumes..I love the content but this is so poor that I'm thinking about going back to the early release CD's...you can see what they did in 2007 when they butchered the mastering job here...this disc has just been collecting dust for so long I need to do something as I love the music..I'm at the stage where I am willing to give up the surround mix for less compression...to take a source that once had a DR of 14 and compress it down to single digits is sad..I'm going to give this a 5 and I'm being kind...now off to do some research on getting it on CD. On a side note I might never forgive Gos for giving Bryan Adams a 7...just saying..hehe..
I see that I gave this a "2." As Sean says, the fidelity grates my ears. No matter how good the music or mix, anything issued this day in age that sounds this bad deserves to be trashed. I'm staying with the "2."The surround mix is decent, not amazing, but the fidelity just grates on my ears... I don't know what it is, from a technical standpoint... too bright? too compressed? too loud? all I know is it "too sucks". 6.
My post is almost 4 years ago and what's even sadder than this title.... is that things have actually gotten worse with recordings....even the "so called" premium downloads...I see that I gave this a "2."

Really enjoying your reviews of these Genesis discs! I bought the 83-98 box solely for this disc (I'm ashamed to admit it's the only Genesis album I was familiar with at the time) and was terribly disappointed. We Can't Dance ended up being my favorite of the four albums in that set.The sixth stop on my Genesis binge (after Trespass, Foxtrot, Nursery Cryme, Calling All Stations and We Can't Dance) and so far this is the least enjoyable one on pretty much every level.
