4 stars Along with other Peter Gabirels Genesis albums, "Foxtrot" tells stories. The instrumental Genesis - not virtuous but not banal and too characteristic - is found throughout the course of the album.

I'm giving only four stars because i think the first side of the vynil is kind of boring and a little part of the theater magic of Genesis is lost.

But there are a lot of interesting things on this album: The bass line on "Get'em out by Friday" is just spetacular, Horizons shows Steve Hacket and his erudi knowledge at its best, "Can- Utility and the Coastliners" is one of my favourite Genesis songs and the giant "Suppers Ready" is a 22 minutes song that i can act and laugh all the time - the funniest suite of all time!

This album is a must just because is a Peter Gabriels Genesis. But don't be flustered, it is not a masterpiece.
