Prog Reviewer
5 stars Wind and Wuthering is the last prog classic produced by Genesis in their old pastoral style. Sure, it's got the rather sentimental and commercial Your Own Special Way... but then again, Selling England By the Pound had the equally cute More Fool Me. And just look at the embarrassment of riches the band give us! Has Hackett's guitar ever sounded better than on Unquiet Slumbers For The Sleepers In That Quiet Earth? Has the band's sense of whimsy ever amused more than on All In a Mouse's Night? Doesn't Eleventh Earl of Mar or One For the Vine deserve to rank next to any of their other dramatic, theatrical songs? Doesn't the drumming on Wot Gorilla? absolutely rule? This album is just a joy from beginning to end, and I'm glad Hackett stuck it out in the band long enough to give us this before departing for his solo career - a split that would change the Genesis sound forever.
Warthur | 5/5 |
