Prog Reviewer
5 stars For me, this is GENESIS`strongest album with Peter Gabriel. As "Close to the Edge", also from 1972, this is one of the best Progressive Rock albums that I have heard. "Foxtrot" is full of imagination, fantasy. It creates a "world", with a lot of mystery. "Watcher of the Skies" has a very good mellotron/organ introduction. "Time Table" is nostalgical, and here the piano is the main instrument. "Get `em out by Friday" is a futuristic story, with also a social comment, as previous reviewers wrote, about some non ethical businessmen."Can- utility and the Coastliners" is one of the best songs in this album, with very good 12 string guitars, and Banks` "orchestral keyboards", plus "dramatic" bass pedals, and a very good final section. "Horizons" shows Hackett`s skills as classical guitarist. "Supper`s Ready" creates "sound atmospheres", being the best parts of this song "Apocalypse in 9/8" (with a great organ solo and drums), and "As Sure as eggs is eggs", with a very good mellotron and several lead guitars by Hackett.
