5 stars Seems like favourite album to me. Both to public prog rock community and also to me. But it's not so good feeling that my review will probably be to no use. There is already hundreds of them, so what difference can I make ? (I know, I've read "even 210th review can be useful). So I'm gonna say some personal feelings about this album, because it should be original. They're mine in the end.

It's strange how I realise bass guitar right now in "Watcher of the Skies", after many listens. I used to listen to this album almost every day, untill I started to be fed up with it. Especially "Timetable" intro. But not now, little bit time and everything is allright, same as with Dark Side of the Moon. "Coastliners" are remarkable track with great guitar solos. After few songs, each of them with it's on story we are confronted with epic tale - Supper's ready. How typically English. It's interesting to look for example on wikipedia to story of this track. It's written to every detail and explanation is long here.

And to rate Peter Gabriel's vocal style is meaningless. Love it or hate it, I like it. A lot. 200 words ? Could be worse. Yeah and why 5 stars ? There's reason, really. I can explain it. But when talking about this album, words are meaningless. Almost. Most of us know this album, so what.
