4 stars This album to me was a bit random at first, but with more listens i really got into its beauty and depth, the beauty of songs such as ENTANGLED, MAD MAN MOON and RIPPLES the rocking parts in opener DANCE ON A VOLCANO, SQUONK and ROBBERY, ASSAULT & BATTERY. To be honest i cant see much difference between Collins and Gabriel's voices so it didnt make much difference (it only really started to change on the next album) this is still a very good album, not their best but miles off their wors, there was not too many things i didnt like about this album its a very enjoyable album the songs just arint as strong as a few of their other albums;

Dance On A Volcano - 9/10 Entangled - 9/10 Squonk - 8/10 Mad Man Moon - 9/10 Robbery, Assault & Battery - 8/10 Ripples - 10/10 A Trick Of The Tail - 8/10 Los Endos - 8/10

MY CONCLUSION? this album is wel worth checking out a great introduction to the Collins era, just be prepared for not all their albums to sound like this..
