5 stars Foxtrot is the album that introduced me to Genesis. From the start to finish it leaves me astonished. The thing with Foxtrot, is that a single song makes it a lot better that it could have been, even if the other five songs are great too... Of course im talking about Supper's Ready. The story behind this song leaves me speechless, its evident that they had a lot of influence over bands of the time and contemporary bands like Dream Theater, The Mars Volta and Spock's Beard. Rush took some out of them too. And even though they are in the same genre, Yes and Genesis couldnt be more far apart.

Watcher of The Skies is a strange song at first (like most of Gabriel era Genesis songs). But after 5 or so listens, it instantly becomes part of your head, only to realize that its become one of the most played songs in your playlist.

Time Table is a beautiful song about old kings, and it gives you the exact mood it wants you to get in to.

Get Em Out By Friday is another of Genesis great epics, and only a listen could explain why it is.

Can-Utility has a great bass line in the middle followed by brilliant keyboard playing that will forever be copied by guitarists and keyboardists..

and of course Supper's Ready, ... i cant give you details, because it could spoil it if you havent listened to it, but you must do it..... The Frog was a prince!!!

9.5 out of 10.0
