Boosted by the success of Trespass and Nursery Cryme, prog legends Genesis release what would become one of their most celebrated works.

The Good: Supper's Ready is easily one of the greatest songs ever recorded. Each movement oozes perfection and seamlessly flows for 23 minutes which seem to pass in an instance. The lyrical content, though somewhat bizarre at times is also engaging and typically excellent of this Genesis era. The album opener is also a favourite of mine with the timeless mellotron introduction performed by Tony Banks. A special mention goes to the superbly intricate Can-Utility and the Coastliners.

The Bad: Whilst the remaining three tracks are far from bad, they still pale in comparison to the rest of the release. I find Horizons in particular to be just a bit bland.

The Verdict: Outstanding, but not consistent enough to be considered a masterpiece in my mind.

Starhammer | 4/5 |
