From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars "Foxtrot" is the best album of Genesis for me (next to his successor "Selling England by pound") and is undoubtedly one of the masterpieces of progressive rock .Hundred of reviewers have commented this album, for better or for the worst.Then what can I say?

"Watcher of Skies" is a powerful opening track, the kind of music that the genesis boot to open your album: strong, powerful and magistral.This introduction with Mellotron(a mellotron darker and heavier than usual) is one of the best of all times.The bass of Mike Rutherford is beyond expectations.In the end, mellotron returns dramatically to an end apotheotic.

"Time Table " is a song ballad.This is sadder, but still very pretty.

"Get'out in by friday" is a sort of mini-epic.The music kicks everything from the beginning, but it seems to wane, when the voice of Gabriel enters with force then we have small sections melancholy (my favorite part of music), but the music alternates between a rock a little heavier and lighter sections.

"Can-utility and Coastliners" is a track underestimated.Her starts simple but then the guitar enters, accompanied by the mellotron.Lá 3:40 minutes, the music changes shape to a final more cool.My only criticism is in relation to the cries of Gabriel in the end, but nothing that spoils the song.

"Horizons"is the kind of guitar solo that I love (thanks, Steve Hackett!). Some say that this song is the introduction of the next track, but I do not see it.

And then it comes: "Supper's Ready".There is a consensus, almost universal, that this is the masterpiece of Genesis (that's what i think also, though I think she shares the post with "The cinema show "). This is a song composed by other music minor ("patchwork. ") But several themes are repeated throughout his nearly 23 minutos.Lirically the music speaks of the Apocalypse, but according to Hackett that was just for the money .

These are my words about this masterpiece of rock in geral.A album that should not receive less than 5 stars
