5 stars 5 stars all the way!

Foxtrot and Selling England are perhaps the only truly essential Genesis releases...Selling England was a masterpiece for its consistency, its beautifully arranged music and its relevant political message. On the other hand Foxtrot is a masterpiece due to a more virtuosic type of playing, a more grandiose sense of theatricals and....Supper's Ready!!! One of the truly perfect epics...and there are not many! I'll briefly list the standout tracks

"Watcher..." is the perfect opener, very theatrical and a classic mellotron intro...chilling! "Get em out..." showcases Gabriel's multiple talents in acting several characters...the old lady that's being evicted is a classic! Horizons is a BEAUTIFUL acoustic track...on par with "Mood for a day" by Yes! And finally the epic to end all epics..."supper" is truly a song for the ages...the timeless battle between good and evil, straight from "six saintly shrouded men" on your lawn all the way to the apocalypse (in 9/8 no less...THAT is prog...ending the world NOT in 4/4)

A must get for any prog fan
