4 stars Get 'em out by friday apart, I'm afraid the first five songs don't do too much for me anymore. Foxtrot does, however, contain one of the greatest songs of all time, Supper's ready.

Get 'em out by friday is along similar lines to Harold the barrel lyrically, with Gabriel doing the police in different voices, and some great social observation alongside emotive style: the mood of the music fits the lyrical theme amazingly.

Supper's ready is, as I have said, one of the greatest songs of all time. Loosely based on the book of Revelation, and generally on the topic of the Judgement, this is among the highlights of modern music. The lyrics are definitely the best in English-language modern music. The opening in itself is a masterpiece. The rest of the songs let these two down, however.
