A Trick of the Tail ist das siebte Studioalbum der Rockband Genesis. Es erschien im Februar 1976 und war das erste Album der Band nach dem Ausstieg von Sänger Peter Gabriel. Mit A Trick of the Tail wurde Schlagzeuger Phil Collins zum Sänger und Frontmann von Genesis. Nach langer Suche nach einem Nachfolger für Peter Gabriel entschied man sich schließlich für Collins, der bereits auf früheren Genesis-Alben den Background-Gesang übernommen hatte. Auch auf A Trick of the Tail spielt Genesis noch Progressive Rock. Der Stilwechsel zum "herkömmlichen" Rock sollte erst nach dem Ausstieg von Steve Hackett 1977 erfolgen. Mit Rang 31 in den nordamerikanischen Albumcharts war A Trick of the Tail das bis dahin erfolgreichste Album der Bandgeschichte.
