5 stars My first reaction after hearing this album was this: DAMN! seriously after hearing this album front to back the first time i couldn't believe what i just heard. I feel this is the quintessential Gabriel-era Genesis album IMO. Every track on here is just amazing. Watcher in the Skies is a great odd song that became a signature song even after Peter left. Time Table is a nice mellow song that is like a rest between Watcher and Get 'em out by Friday which might be my favorite track of the album because i love the way it twists and turns and feels almost like a perfect 8 min track. Can-Utility and The Coastliners is another good one but not as great as the previous ones. Horizons is a nice acoustic break by Steve Hackett who's song writing abilities were criminally underrated during his Genesis time. Lastly, Supper's Ready do i need to say anything about this track cause no matter what i say it's probably been said but i will come out and say it. Supper's Ready is overrated. Now that being said, it is a good song that really does symbolize Genesis in their Prog days but it's not the grand awesome song everyone perceives it to be. It has great parts in it but as a whole song it does kinda go on a little but is deserving of at least one listen. But i just can't stand the just constant blind praise of this song. I like it but not great. Overall, a GREAT album that any prog fan should have in their a collection. Must have. 5 stars. Highlights: Watcher of the Skies, Time Table, Get 'em out by Friday and Horizons
