3 stars Peter Gabriel, as a real man, left Genesis to take care of his wife in her hard hard moments. So Phil Collins slowly sold Genesis by the pound. A Trick Of The Tail was the first album without Gabriel, icluding Phil as leader. The album isn't bad. Many people think that from post- Gabriel era this record is the nearest to the oldschool Genesis. I don't think so. This is totally different. There was Banks, Hacket, Collins, but no one could keep Genesis on the ground after Gabriel's departure. Some songs from this album has a good songwriting, but too repetitive. I really don't need to listen to this album when I have all the masterpieces from Trespass to Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Even into prog area, Genesis went easy listening with A Trick of The Tail. And most of the tracks are very happy, or have a different mood here. Good (and half good) tracks are: Dance On A Volcano, Robbery Assault and Battery, Ripples, A Trick of The Tail, Los Endos. The rest is poor. And even the good tracks are monotone, boring to listen to the whole track, yes, I always get bored at the middle of the track.
