I voted for entangled.

This is my favorite Genesis album from start to finish. It used to be Selling England but I realized after a while that "battle of epping forest gump" is kind of a mess and "you fooled me" isn't really that great either.  Smile

It surprises me that Entangled got the most votes. Other than a nice melody there really isn't anything particularly  proggy or special about the track.

I was not expecting my favourite to be #1 but so far it is.  For me it's all because of the last few minutes, which are a total bliss-out.  Second to Entangled would be Squonk.  Love the way one leads to the next

Entangled is fabulous!! The combination of the 12 string guitars and mellotron is absolutely haunting and extremely proggy!!
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Voted for 'Ripples'.

This is probably my least favourite LP from classic Genesis era. I prefer 'Wind & Wuthering' over it.

"Dance on a Volcano". While "Entangled" is certainly a beautiful acoustic song and one of my favorites, I think "Dance on a Volcano", and "Squonk" as well, set a tone and sound for post-Gabriel Genesis that proved they could still make astounding music without Pete.

Been listening to Genesis from the beginning and bought Trick when it came out on vinyl......I always thought Wind was a better LP. ...and Entangled just doesn't do that much for me.

^ the main chorus of ENTAGLED doesn't do a whole lot for me. It's the deeply melodic Mellotron solo that grabs me and hits me pretty hard. It's very beautiful. You just gotta go through half the song to hear it though. ;)

My spelling errors...I do this a lot. You know I meant Entangled? I hope.

Man. This album still does it for me. Anybody else feel that other than Seconds Out, this is Phil Collins's best vocal performance with the band? I do. ;)

I could never get into this album. The band lost it's grit and every song on the album has this cheesy "smooth" sound to the playing and production. 
The softer songs, to me, are just really awkward sounding ballads coming from this band.
Though, Dance on a Volcano is probably the song closest to being an actual progression from the Gabriel-prog to Collins-era without failure, But even then, it just has this sound to it where it's like every note is a silk pillow.
