5 stars "Wind And Wuthering" is another beautiful work by Genesis. This one seems to be more gentle than "A Trick of The Tail" and has a lot more of Bank's lush keyboards and piano. I agree with another reviewer who said it's quite a 'feminine' album. On the first few listens I liked it a lot, but on revisiting, I fell in love with it. The production is superb and all the pieces are very well crafted with stunning textures and lyrics that paint musical stories. The album has plenty of interesting surprises and changing moods, especially with 'Eleventh Earl Of Mar' and 'One For The Vine'. "Blood On The Rooftops" is also one favourite with Hackett's wonderful classical-guitar. You'll hear some quirky instrumentals too, of which "...In That Quiet Earth" is particularly twisty and turning and exciting with great group interplay. This is essential Genesis and a highly recommended prog classic.
