5 stars 10/10

I think I can add nothing about it, just my personal feelings on each track it, that is surely my favourite album and my favourite band. And Genesis on this record seems to me as the ultimate band, perfect performance, interplay, flow... So we go to the individual songs:

Watcher Of The Skies - 9/10

Archetypical "electric band song", summarizes the essence of Genesis, each of the five men shine, and, plus, Hackett is very present and easy to recognise, extra points for that.

Time Table - 8/10

Still good balance and band experience, some more focus on piano and acoustic guitars.

Get 'Em Out By Friday - 9/10

Just as fantastic as the first one, so complete. I can't choose which I prefer the most.

Can-Utility And The Coastliners - 8/10

When you think the well has run dry, another gem shows up. It goes through acoustic, Mellotron, electric... Everything they could do.

Horizons' - 7/10

A short song with only Hackett on acoustic guitar. Simple, nothing wrong with it.

Supper's Ready - 10/10

Well, what can I say about it? What else would want from it? The ultimate Genesis experience, just listen to it.

The system I used to rate the songs is like: 10 - The best song on the album; 9 - A highlight; 8 - A great song; 7 - Average song or a different format; and lesser rates which don't apply to this particular album.

The only problem I can identify on it is that Banks still overshadows Hackett, as he does in most of Genesis. Anyway, that's it, the best album ever, for me (and many other I guess).
