TrickedTail
4 stars Along with Selling England by the Pound and Foxtrot , this is one of my absolute favourite Genesis albums, hence the name. It begins with Dance on Volcano a subtle opener and then moves quickly on into two of the best songs on the album Entangled and Squonk. Entangled, like most of the album, is soft and beautiful whilst Squonk has a slight pop feel to it. Man Man Moon and Ripples are in a similar category to Entangled with beautiful Hackett and Banks inspired melodies. A Trick of the Tail is a Banks-pop tune in similarity with Afterglow from the next album. And Los Endos ends things perfectly, drawing from the previous songs, Volcano and Squonk in particular.

Dance on a Volcano - 16/20, Entangled - 18/20, Squonk - 18/20, Man Man Moon - 17/20, Robbery, Assault & Battery - 14/20, Ripples - 17/20, A Trick of the Tail - 17/20, Los Endos - 19/20

Overall album score - 86%.

TrickedTail | 4/5 |
