1967/ 1976
3 stars Hmmm... Gabriel left Genesis and Hackett remain. This is important because Hackett is the last contact with Prog for Genesis. In fact without Hackett Genesis not played Prog (see 80's albums).

In this case Genesis played a good Prog album, devastated by virtuosity and complications in Prog parts but devastated also by too long POP parts and without true balance from both parts. In substance the Prog parts are too Prog and the POP parts are too POP. At the same time Collins is not Gabriel and non have Gabriel magic.

In a good substance this is my perception of "A Trick Of The Tail", a good album for 1976 and for Genesis in 4 man line-up.

1967/ 1976 | 3/5 |
