4 stars Now this is the album with the EPIC 22 minute SUPPER'S READY a fantastic journey as Genesis always do with at least one song in every album they make, but is the rest of the album as good as this one epic? well yes and no the inteo WATCHER OF THE SKIES is a briliant example of a song that is just as strong (in my opinion) as Supper's Ready, well not totally as strong but would be if Suppers Ready was cut down to about 7 minutes. Another great song and highlight for me is GET 'EM OUT BY FRIDAY basically all the longer tracks seem to be the strongest part of this release with the rest all bing the first time Genesis have used filler songs, so its really not as good as their first two albums, but Supper's Ready really makes up for it;

Watcher Of The Skies - 9/10 Time Table - 7/10 Get 'Em Out By Friday - 9/10 Can-Utility And The Coastliners - 8/10 Horizons - 7/10 Supper's Ready- 10/10

MY CONCLUSION? this is still a great Genesis album, and as i said the epic Supers Ready really makes up for the slightly 'filler' songs that really make the album.
