4 stars A great show of symphonic composition and exciting performances, Foxtrot is one of the few Genesis albums worthy of its praise and actually delivers on its reviews. The songs are finely crafted and feature lots of outstanding instrumental moments and vocal deliveries-- everyone here is on top of their game and playing as a very tightly as a group with no one member dominating. The seminole "Supper's Ready" holds up as one of the great prog-epics, and the energetic "Watcher of the Skies" and "Get 'em Out by Friday" fill the intersteces excellently. Most enjoyable perhaps are Gabriel's vocals and the group's laid back vibe. I've often said that Genesis' instrumentalists are boring and tepid, but here the group holds the mood and momentum together nicely. A near flawless buy for any fan of the classic progressive sound.
