4 stars I know every reviewer who knows anything about prog has reviewed this album, but I must put in my two cents anyways. I don't view this as a masterpiece, nor is it Genesis' best. Those titles belong to Selling England. Foxtrot, for me, is too heavy overall. I do like the heavyness, but after the amazingly beautiful guitar and organ work on trespass and Nursery Cryme, I expected more of the same, but it got overall a little to heavy for my tastes. Watcher of the Skies is good, but gets a little repetetive. Time Table is rather boring, interesting lyrics, but rather boring. Get'em Out by Friday is Great, awesome organ and acting by Gabe. Can Utility is a very interesting piece, it seems to pack a lot in to 6 short minutes. of course horizons is great, and obviously Supper's Ready is a masterpiece. The very best song the band ever did ( second only to Dancing with the Moonlit Knight). Foxtrot is great, but they needed one extra step to reach masterpiece.
