5 stars According to me, this is one of Genesis best albums. It's their last truly progressive recording and reportedly their most complex. Even if complexity doesn't matter this is as said good! It starts of at top rate with "Eleventh Earl of Mar" and continues with Tony Banks masterpiece "One For The Vine". "Your Own Special Way" is the weakest and most poppy track, but the ballad isn't that horrible and it fits quite well in the album. The short instrumental "Wot Gorilla?" comes next and by this point, one really is into the moods of the record. From here it only gets better and better. (Didn't think that was possible.) Yes, "All In A Mouse's Night" do have silly lyrics but what the heck, do I care? No! Last out is, of course, the final suite of "Unquiet Slumbers for the Sleepers...", "...In That Quiet Earth" and "Afterglow". Six stars of five possible! "Unquiet Slumbers..." and "...Quiet earth" is Genesis instrumentals at their best (Most instrumentals by Genesis is astonishing, so that says a lot.) and Afterglow - In contrast to "...Mouse's Night" have splendid lyrics. And of course a splendid melody, Genesis have always been good at final tracks.

Wind & Wuthering is an album you have to own. Don't download it, buy it from a record store! It's a complete package with cover and all. Everything on this album fits with the mood first sensed when you look at the beautiful Hipgnosis sleeve. An essential superlative release by an essential Prog Rock group. Get your hands on it now!
