5 stars No doubt one of the best prog albums ever released. It however starts with pretty average tune Watcher Of The Skies but Time Table shows its brilliancy. This is a softer tune but with a lot of emotional package. Get Em Out By Friday one of the most important Genesis songs reminds me of Nursery Cryme album and its obviously a proggy masterpiece. I also like Can Utility which brings shivers up and down my spine at the end of the song. The opus magnum of Foxtrot is of course 23 minute long Supper's Ready. Personally I think it's the finest Genesis song and one of the progressive cornerstones. This brilliant epic tune is filled with emotions and sense of humour (like Jethro Tull's Thick As A Brick). Some parts are soft some really dynamic, Genesis at their peak and not such boring as Yes at the time.

A must have album for all progressive rock fans. I can't believe how much I was disappointed with their next release. But that's a fact. It's nowhere near Foxtrot.
