5 stars AND IT'S ......

Splendid, magnific!... HOW DARE THEY BE SO GOOD!??

The best album ever, made by the best prog-band ever. Absolutely essential. Actually, THIS is the essence of progressive rock, and in a most acurate meaning, Supper's Ready from head to feet is the complete demonstration of how must prog-rock be. The finest music, the creative lyrics, the effects, the contrasts, the reprise of The Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man in the ending, and what an ending!, the most glorious ending that i've ever heard (including those majestic bells)... all these elements conform the best epic song in the history of Music, along with Close to the Edge, but if i had to choose between those two I would stay with Supper's Ready, because it gives the impression of being a most serious song. For the people who hasn't heard this song yet, and are trying to enter the prog-rock colorfull universe I tell them that this is the higher point in the prog music mountain. You will hear a lot of excellent bands and songs, but this is the creed of the prog fan. The structure of the song is perfect, the musical work is amazing, the greatest instrumental section (apocalypse) of the song is something that I never become bored of. There are so many things to analyze that the repetitive effect of this song never shows up, I mean, every time i listen to it , is like the first time!... it something very hard to get but being GENESIS is the only way to reach that point.

The rest of the songs of the albums are beautyfull too. They make this the best album ever. Watcher of the skies, the perfect beginningof the journey, the mellotron gives the aspect of a warm sound (for me) you cant imagine nothing but the sky with this song. Time Table is an adapted balad to keep this majestic album with its feet on the ground. Get'em out by friday is a great song, i like the organ in this one, specially in the beginning. Horizon's, a demonstration of the huge talent of Steve Hacket when playing classical guitar is the deal.

There is no doubt that this is the greatest progressive rock masterpiece of all times, I wish that it appears this way in the rankings....
