4 stars What I disliked most about this album came from knowing the sound Phil Collins would take the band in the 80's. There is some foreshadowing of that sound, but keep in mind this is still 1976, well before that sound "ruined" Genesis as many prog fans would believe. Based on the merits of what this album itself brings to the table, this is a great album. It doesn't quite capture the greatness of Nursery Cryme through Lamb, but it's excellent. Don't skip out on this simply because it's not Foxtrot. It's great.

Steven Hackett is still in the band, and there's a lot of really cool rhythmic stuff they're doing. I read that Trick is the closest they get to Led Zeppelin which is respectable. And that's true also in the sense that sometimes the drums are more straight up rock than "wussier" folkish drumming. Overall 4 - 4.5 stars!
