"There's an angel standing in the sun, there's an angel standing in the sun, free to get back home..."

After the departure of Peter Gabriel the Genesis began a search for a singer ... only to discover that he was among them, playing drums. And this man named Phil Collins took the band in an era of prosperity and commercial success - and bitterest critics, many of them here on the site. But before that the group has created two great masterpieces progressive 100%, one of which is Trick of The Tail, my favorite album of the band ...

... and one of the best of its kind ever created.

From the dark opening of Dance on a Volcano to reprises and the powerful jazz-fusion of Los Endos through the pastoral atmosphere of Entangled, melancholy and Mad Man Moon Ripples and restoring the past with the theatricality of Robbery, Assault and Battery this is an album that was never it made ​​him tired. 50 minutes are breathtaking, giving us some of the best moments of this band which is always a favorite of many.

The only two weak elements that I would like to highlight are Squonk and the the vocal passages in Robbery ... But foturnately is nothing that can overshadow the brilliance and genius of Trick of The Tail - and can not make me change my mind about the love I have for this album.
