3 stars In 'Wind and Wuthering' Genesis began withering.

What's wrong with this album, one might ask ... Well, it lacks dynamics and mindblowing musicianship. Also, Collins vocals come a little bland here. The result is a slightly boring album.

The opening track is an exception. It is the strongest song of the album, and has a lot of energy which is something this album lacks. 'Wot Gorilla' is another strong moment of the album, reminding the listener of the great musicianship of 'Trick of the Tail'. The epic is quite a pretty and melodic song, tho its percussive instrumental break is horribly out of place.

Not a bad album at all! It is just disappointing for having such a group of excellent musicians and releasing this. This album shows that the band was running out of gas and was about to release an even weaker album (and then there were three) until exploring pop while being successful at it.

My Grade : C

Zitro | 3/5 |
