5 stars This is the one that started me on prog. Prior to this, the only Genesis album I owned was "Invisible Touch' (*shutters) and upon telling my friend that "Domino' was the best song I had ever heard at that time he proceeded to play "Can-Utility and the Coastliners' to me. Well, that did it. "Watcher Of The Skies' has one of my all-time favourite song intro's. Banks' captivating mellowtron sucks you in immediatelly. Then that morse code bass-line kicks in with the drum accompaniment, you can't help but crank that stereo. 'Time Table' is an excellent pop ballad (sort of) that proved that Genesis was capable of putting together superb short songs. 'Get 'Em Out By Friday' besides being tons 'o fun to listen to, has Rutherford's best bass work ever. I feel that 'Can-Utility' is probably their most underrated song, but that could be simply because of the effect it had on me personally (as stated above.) I love Hackett's beautiful little 'Horizons' which I feel is far from simply being filler. And then of course, 'Supper's Ready' My favourite song of all time!!
