Album Review

Wind & Wuthering followed quickly on the heels of A Trick of the Tail and they're very much cut from the same cloth, working the same English eccentric ground that was the group's stock in trade since Trespass. But if A Trick of the Tail played like Genesis' attempt at crafting a great Genesis record without Peter Gabriel, as a way of finding their footing as a quartet, Wind & Wuthering finds Genesis tentatively figuring out what their identity will be in this new phase of their career. The most obvious indication of this is Mike Rutherford's "Your Own Special Way," which is both the poppiest tune the group had cut and also the first that could qualify as a love song. It stands out on a record that is, apart from that, a standard Genesis record, but quite a good one in that regard. [This version of Wind & Wuthering features a bonus DVD, including interviews and bootleg videos from U.S. and Japanese television.]

One of the Best

For many reasons, one of my favorite Genesis albums. Masterfully executed Prog at its unrepentant Proggy best. Unlike much of the Prog music available from the late 60s and early 70s, the sound is clean, the layering wonderful, the storytelling hammy and fun -- this music takes itself seriously even when the song is about something silly. Forget about the analog purists who long for the days of pops, snaps and muddy arrangements. I enjoy hearing every sound clearly, as I'm sure the band intended. Being Hackett's last album, this album represents a sort of swansong to the band's prog era. It's also the last time any of their albums would showcase both the power and beauty of the guitar.

One of my favorite Genesis albums remastered. Very sweet. Solves the sound volume problem that plagues a lot of old CDs when ripped to iPod. This remaster is crisp and clear.

You just don't mess with magic!

Remastered? Re-muddled is more like it. Sure, it's crisp and clean, and all scrubbed up and anti-bacterialized, but when I heard Blood on the Rooftops, I almost did jump off the rooftop! Where's the magic that naturally occurs with analog tape? The reverb during the chorus is gone, it's been cleaned and compressed and limited to high hell, and they lost the warmth that only analog can give you. The original Wind & Wuthering is one of the top-ten greatest pieces of modern music ever written. It should NOT be screwed with. End of Story.

Their roots go back to 1965 and a pair of rival groups,...
