At least Hugh Padgam was interviewed as part of the coverage of the important development of Collins's legendary drum sound.

However, at the end of the Gabriel era the interview scenes in that group configuration are few and far between – and even worse, it feels like Hackett was often cut out of the picture on purpose.Interestingly enough, there's an interview with the band's first promoter in the US, but the images from New York are current and not from the 70s – since it says “New York 1972” this seems quite unprofessional. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

It does contain some live footage I've never seen before and it's nice to see Ant get some attention. 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. It tells of the band’s formation at Charterhouse (where Tony Banks, Peter Gabriel and Mike Rutherford were all pupils) in the late sixties and the release of their debut album “From Genesis To Revelation”. This alone isn't all that bad since it would probably be difficult for any director to find a balance between all the solo careers and what's happening with the band.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 . Intensely driven, he overcame personal and professional challenges to secure his place amongst the greatest vocalists in history. Sum Of The Parts explores the dynamics of the group that has enabled them to survive changes of line-up, see their musical direction steadily evolve and maintain both group and solo careers along with their enduring popularity as evidenced by their hugely successful 2007 reunion tour. 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.

Sum Of The Parts” explores the dynamics of the group that has enabled them to survive changes of line-up, see their musical direction steadily evolve and maintain both group and solo careers along with their enduring popularity as evidenced by their hugely successful 2007 reunion tour.

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. 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. My favourite band of all time reunited in a documentary, that sums its up, while I'd liked to have seen Steve Hackett getting more screen time this is down to those that put the documentary and not the other members of Genesis. It tells of the band s formation at Charterhouse (where Tony Banks, Peter Gabriel and Mike Rutherford were all pupils) in the late sixties and the release of their debut album From Genesis To Revelation . Of course, the average consumer won't notice any of this, but does that justify painting a completely distorted picture of the band?
