About this deal

There's still barely any Steve in the documentary's 80s while Tony Banks is featured with a lot of quite poor songs. Over the course of the documentary, it's increasingly clear that 4-5 of the interviewees and experts are featured strikingly often. The shit storm after the “exciting news”, the production of a documentary like this and how the situation was handled as a whole unfortunately only mean four things: the band won't do anything together anymore. Peter Gabriel’s departure in 1975 and then Steve Hackett’s in 1977 led to the release of the album “And Then There Were Three…” and a move towards shorter, more immediate songs. Fans don't really get to know or see anything new – until a snippet from the famous Roundhouse recordings.

Ranjit, a farmer in India, takes on the fight of his life when he demands justice for his 13-year-old daughter, the victim of a brutal gang rape. Because in the end, absolutely nothing official will be done for the 40th anniversary of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, possibly the most ambitious work in Genesis' history. The impression that Phil's arrival changed the band immediately and may have been more decisive than Steve's is illustrated quite clearly and definitely understandable – Steve's influence was much more subtle and slower while Phil's drumming had an immediate impact on the band. In fact, Sum Of The Parts is a slapdash documentary, showing a distorted picture of the band's history and bluntly revealing the conditions within the band.The main menu is quite modest – the letters w, s, l, f, h, k, r can be seen, but that probably doesn't mean anything. Richard Macphail and also Jonathan King are featured here, whose participation has been the cause of some discussion beforehand. The eighties and nineties were triumphant decades for Genesis with hugely successful hit albums and singles around the world such as Genesis , Invisible Touch and We Can t Dance . This is followed by a jump to the 2006 band rehearsals (not 2007 as the subtitle indicates) and we're left to wonder whether the years 1993-2006 never really happened. The management doesn't understand a thing about the dynamics on the internet and the band apparently doesn't care about their fans.

BONUS FEATURE: Over 30 minutes of additional interviews with the band members that were not included in the broadcast version. The story then moves on through the departure of founder member Anthony Phillips and the arrival of Phil Collins and Steve Hackett in 1970 to form the 5-man line-up that established the band s career with albums such as Foxtrot and The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway . Featuring contributions from key members past and present: Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford and Anthony Phillips, as well as a wealth of archive performance footage of the band’s biggest tracks and fan favourites, this first authorised study of the band’s history commences with their formation at Charterhouse in 1967 and reunites the band for the first time in many years.Sum Of The Parts” is the official authorised story of Genesis made with the full co-operation of the band members.

While Gabriel's exit was accompanied by a short side trip into his solo career up until about 1980, Steve's solo works haven't been brought up at all apart from his explanation for his first album – even though he had been the first to release a solo album back then. Bestselling Author and award-winning Filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza expose widespread, coordinated voter fraud in the 2020 election, sufficient to change the overall outcome.However, it starts with the most current images from the 2007 tour, features a few statements (the misspelling of Daryl Stuermer as 'Steurmer' is already striking) and then takes a step back – to the Charterhouse. Intensely driven, he overcame personal and professional challenges to secure his place amongst the greatest vocalists in history. Peter Gabriel gives us the weirdest scene by standing up in the middle of a question to take a cup of ginger tea that was brought to him even though he had asked for coffee. First, the 'exciting news' turned out to be a new compilation without any new material – including the solo songs was the only new aspect. Other important protagonists were left out as well: Armando Gallo, Paul Whitehead, who designed the band's first album covers, John Burns and David Hentschel, who influenced the band's early sound.
