Also, Genesis were moving away from the barbed pop of the first LP and returning to elastic numbers that showcased their instrumental prowess, and they sounded more forceful and unified as a band than they had since Foxtrot. Not that this album is quite as memorable as Foxtrot or Selling England, largely because its songs aren't as immediate or memorable: apart from "Dance on a Volcano," this is about the sound of the band playing, not individual songs, and it succeeds on that level quite wildly - to the extent that it proved to longtime fans that Genesis could.
Listen to A Trick Of The Tail right now. Released on 2 February 1976, it was a record that saw Messrs Collins, Banks, Hackett and Rutherford following their best instincts. It’s as strong as it ever was, Banks told Melody Maker as A Trick Of The Tail emerged, following that with a bold statement. If it isn’t, we won’t play again. If it’s not as good, there’s no point in playing. The closing ‘Los Endos’ was the only other track ascribed to all four members, but Banks emerged as the most productive individual: two of the others were by the keyboard player with Rutherford, one with Collins, another with Hackett, and Banks wrote two on his own.

It was not, however, the first Genesis song on which Phil Collins sang lead. That was "For Absent Friends" from the album Nursery Cryme in 1971. This song was written by keyboard player Tony Banks. His lyrics were based on William Golding's 1955 novel, The Inheritors. He recalled: "It's about a race who were on earth before man and it's the story of the last survivor of this race.

A Trick of the Tail" is a song by the progressive rock band Genesis taken from the album of the same name. It was written by the band's keyboard player Tony Banks and was the first Genesis song to be accompanied by a promotional video, which features the band gathered around a piano performing the song and directed by Bruce Gowers and it was the first single of Genesis featuring Phil Collins as the band's lead vocalist (he was previously their drummer). The majority of the song was written in 1972 and was originally intended for the Foxtrot album. The song's rhythm, according to Banks, is heavily influenced by The Beatles' "Getting Better. The lyrics are inspired by the book The Inheritors by William Golding. Like much of the album A Trick of the Tail, the song's lyrics focus on a specific character: the "Beast" who leaves his own kingdom and enters the world of humans.
