Prog Reviewer
5 stars There are too many reviews about this album, but I just want to tell my personal sensation when, in 1975, I heard it by the first time. I put the vinyl, side A, in my record player and... upsss! I was involved in an incredible mellotron opening the album, soon in a softly emotional piece ("Time Table"), I heard the most fascinating and emotive Gabriel's voice in "Get' Em Out By Friday" and, at the end, the beautiful melodic energy of "Can-Utility and the Coastliners". In the middle of my ecstasy, I put the side B, supposing I never would listen anything so perfect again, but when the acoustic peace of "Horizons" finished and "Supper's Ready" started, I understood I was in front of a magical masterpiece. I didn't believe music could be so fantastic! Well, time goes on, but I heard this suite again and again by almost 30 years, and each time is more fresh and exciting than the last. Beside "Selling England By The Pound", "Foxtrot" is -IMO- not only the quintessence Genesis' music; it's one of the most important chapters in the whole progressive rock history.
