In the pantheon of legendary drum fills, few songs come close to the legacy of Phil Collins’ solo debut single. But In The Air Tonight is about more than just a drum fill: The song is a perfectly crafted slow burn, patiently building up an overwhelming atmosphere before finally delivering on the implicit promise made by its slow crescendo. So let’s talk about it!
