4 stars This was the first Genesis album i ever listened to,and A Trick of the Tail is a great album to start out with if your getting into some classic Genesis. This was the first album without Peter Gabriel present and this album is less heavier than like a Foxtrot or Nursrey Cryme . This album has a dark feeling to it. Phil Collins taking over lead vocals was something new to him and i like his voice very much on this album. There are many highlights on this album like the opener Dance on a Volcano, Entangled which is one of my favorite Genesis tracks of all time, Phils vocals are amazing and Steve Hacketts acoustic guitar is so beautiful. And the the closing track Los Endos is awesome instrumental by Genesis, with great drumming by Phil. Another great album by Genesis, soon Phil, Tony, and Michael would take the band into a way different direction and guitarist Steve Hackett would leave to pursue a solo career like Gabriel. Probably the last great Genesis album. 4 stars for a great album
