I saw them at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this year and they were sensational. The new album is great and whilst they do incorporate a couple of later Genesis tracks (and they did Cuddly Toy by Roachford too, with Andrew being on board and all) it is mostly M+tM stuff played brilliantly.
Note that there are 2 guys interchanging lead, Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar but they are both awesome singers. Ive followed Roachford for a very long time and he's definitely the more soulful of the 2, Silent Running for instance sounded brilliant but Tim has a HUGE set of pipes and rocks it up a bit. Even the Genesis tracks fit really well into the set.
