A complete waste of time and money. Rather than presenting us with the genuine original UK masters of these albums, Universal Japan has instead used the disgusting 2008 remasters by Nick Davis. Wasn't the point of this Platinum SHM series to locate the original masters? Yes, Queen's A Night at the Opera and News of the World were made from Bob Ludwig's remasters, but at least they stay faithful to the original albums we know and love. Furthermore, after the UK series (the band), Universal Japan has nixed the box idea and reverted to simple mini-LP-dom. That's all good and fine given that a miniature sleeve replica was included in the box. But what really pisses me off is that on previous releases by Marvin Gaye and Supertramp, they provided us with the original Japanese song titles (that is ones not written in katakana). Universal Japan didn't even try with these Genesis releases. Hello! They're right there on the obi strip replicas! Here's an example for "The Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging." Which do you think looks better: the regal and beautiful "生命なき人形の大行進"? Or the dull and boring "ザ・グランド・パレード・オブ・ライフレス・パッケージング"? I thought so. All in all, these Platinum SHM-CD's from Genesis are a disaster and serve no real purpose among some cool sleeve replicas. Whoever made the decision to use the Nick Davis remixes and not restore the Japanese-language song titles made a HUGE mistake and managed to cure me of wanting to add them to my collection. I'm sure these CD's will sell very poorly when fans and audiophiles discover what a botch it is. I'd better not be disappointed with the John Lennon reissues.
