5 stars With Foxtrot, Genesis at last develop their most fully realized sound and perhaps the pinnacle of their career. The songwriting and flow is the most consistent and thoroughly impressive display of their career thus far. From the grand mellotron introduction with "Watcher of the Skies" to the epic bombast of "Supper's Ready", there is very little to find fault with on this album if anything. The band has improved as a single unit and Peter Gabriel's vocals have certainly gained more confidence and strength when portraying the various characters he brings life to. The production and mastering is a lot more fresh and crisp than it potentially was on Nursery Cryme, though still retaining the harder edge that made that album very prominent in stature. This is the result of a fine-tuned band showcasing their strengths and putting it all out on the table for us to take in and enjoy. By all means, an essential masterpiece of the progressive rock genre.
Codera the Great | 5/5 |
