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. 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. Anthony Philips is established as the driving force and head of the band and his leaving is well documented and commented on. It does contain some live footage I've never seen before and it's nice to see Ant get some attention. As it turned out, this was supposed to be part of a larger campaign probably aimed at getting Genesis back into the public discourse again.

The members of Genesis reunite to discuss the band's success and legacy in this musical documentary.

We only get to hear Your Own Special Way very briefly, without the usual presentation of the cover along with some data (date of release, rank in the charts).

However, Ed Goodgold, the first North America tour promoter, who had never been featured in a documentary before, is quite an interesting choice. Quality documentary with some good interviews, sadly post Collins and CAS has been omitted so no interview with Ray Wilson which might have been nice even a couple of minutes. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.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.

There are a few others who are just as excessively featured as Kate: Mark Billingham is a novelist and even though the reason for him being involved isn't exactly obvious, he often manages to hit the nail right on the head. Genesis: Together and Apart is a 2014 documentary about the English rock band Genesis and its members' solo projects. 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.Gabriel's costumes and the big break with Foxtrot, the sound of Selling England By The Pound (which is given way too little time here though), the creation of The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway – during these parts, the documentary really shows how good it could have been. One could argue, of course, that the average consumer doesn't care about these flaws making it a fun documentary for them. Richard Macphail and also Jonathan King are featured here, whose participation has been the cause of some discussion beforehand.

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. There's still barely any Steve in the documentary's 80s while Tony Banks is featured with a lot of quite poor songs.Video evidence, obtained from official surveillance cameras installed by the states themselves, confirms the geotracking evidence. 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. 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.
