4 stars I don't agree that Genesis became more commercial with this album, most albums have 1 or 2 shorter tracks but most people are always trying to pinpoint the album with which they got more poppy. Occasionally Trick is a little bit too sweet and mellow but in a typical prog rock way with the inclusion of lots of delicate twelve string acoustic guitar, but when it is more agressive it stands up with the best of the Gabriel led stuff. Dance On A Volcano is perhaps one of the best Genesis songs ever recorded and the odd meter still sounds like the old vinyl version was jumping. Definately one of my favorites and without peer.
