Genesis: Wind & Wuthering (Charisma) *****

Barbara Charone, Sounds, 18 December 1976

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Too much to digest on one listening. Overall album sound even better than A Trick Of The Tail. Less immediate but more substantial than previous album. More aggressive than melodic. Best recorded Phil Collins vocals to date. Heavier jazz influence – could this have anything to do with Brand X????? Sounds great. Spin it again.
