Genesis: Wind and Wuthering (1976)
Wind and Wuthering is the final Genesis record to feature Steve Hackett. And, so another Genesis era comes to an end. This is a solid record, though this is one that didn't get that many repeated spins from me. I think it's probably an underrated record from Genesis, and maybe I should listen to it more frequently.
I never really warmed to Your Own Special Way. It seems a bit too saccharin or something. Eleventh Earl of Mar, Wot Gorilla, and ...In That Quiet Earth are all really solid pieces. I'm not sold on Blood on the Rooftops or Unique Slumber for the Sleepers.
