5 stars Wow, I have come to adore this band over the years. This is one of the many Genesis greats. 'Dance On A Volcano' is just an intoxicating prog classic and Phil Collins does well with the vocals. His excellent drumming is more noticeable than before too. There are plenty of mesmerising moments, including 'Entangled', with its sweet melodies. Listen out for the sophisticated organ and piano passages on this album. I love the subtle classical-folk-prog moods and just like other amazing records, I seem to catch new things everytime from the many twists and turns the music leads you. The lyrics and fantastical themes are very intriguing. 'Mad Man Moon' is one favourite. It's very melodic and contains a string section as well. Another real eye-opener is Ripples. It may be dreamy in sound but it has such touching lyrics. This is an intensely striking, sad song and is one of my favourite of all Genesis songs. Fabulous music - always interesting and impeccably played from start to finish. It seems that a few fans have a difficult time being objective about the incredible music created after Peter Gabriel's departure. Give records like 'Trick' another listen. Gensis moved on. And their fans definitely should too.
