All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
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 ...

It stands out on a record that is, apart from that, a standard Genesis record, but quite a good one in that regard.

    The Last Progressive Rock Work of Genesis

    This is accordin to me the Last Progressive Rock Work of Genesis. There is the influence of the late Steve Hackett with his tonal guitars. Very good project, the music is orchestrated with emphasis. Also good the Phil Collins Vocal approach....not as Peter Gabriel but anyway an honest job. Recommended!!!

    "Daddy, you promised!"

    It's unfortunate that this lp has so many labels attatched. "Post-Gabriel", "Collins-led", "new Genesis" etc. I hate them all! "Wind & Withering" is an lp that the band that recorded it could be proud of & Peter could be jealous of for not being on it. From the start "Wind & Withering" takes you on a musical voyage to the imagination that lives within all of us. "Eleventh Earl of Mar" opens the set with build-up & drive. Even when the music slows tempo it retains it's momentum. Lyrics definatly are a focal point to much of the lp. "All in a Mouses Night" begs you to put yourself in script & wonder "what if...?" This indeed is my favorite Genesis lp without Peter. Good music, good lyrics, good lp!

    For a long time this was my favorite Genesis record, and it still ranks among them. I first fell in love with Genesis when I saw the "That's All" video back in late '83 but it was backed up by my passing familiarity with my father's older records, including this one. It took a bit to get into it, but W&W contains rich treasures, especially the opener, "Eleventh Earl of Mar," telling the tale of a failed Scottish uprising in a rousing and evocative setting, and also the long instrumental passage "Unquiet Slumbers for the Sleepers...in That Quiet Earth" (a quote from _Wuthering Heights_) that leads us to the closing song (the concert staple "Afterglow"). "One for the Vine" is another transporting longer piece with emotional highs and lows, dominated by piano and synthesizers. The only song I find tiring is "Your own Special Way," but even that has its charms. Buried in this album is a suite of sorts, as themes from various songs, such as the opening phrase of "Eleventh Earl," keep popping up in various places. It's sad that this album was Steve Hackett's last with Genesis as his battle to establish his voice within the Banks/Rutherford-dominated environment was starting to yield tasty fruit.
