The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.

Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

Product Description

Foxtrot marked a decisive point in Genesis's career. An emerging art-rock band who were building up a growing cult following with a busy touring schedule, this album was an artistic and commercial landmark; it was their first album to chart. Including the classic "Watcher of the Skies" and Peter Gabriel's whimsically compassionate slice of life, "Get 'Em Out by Friday," the album's highlight is the ambitious sidelong epic "Supper's Ready." Comprising seven linked subsections, it was inspired apparently by a frightening experience where Gabriel's wife, Jill, felt she was possessed, and is a story of two lovers and the struggle between good and evil. Certainly it was the most innovative and entertaining piece the band had produced to date. The relatively rough production values could be seen as either detracting somewhat from the impact of the album or adding a pleasantly rough edge to what might otherwise be a somewhat prim sound. --James Swift

4.0 out of 5 stars This album is perfect Genesis! 21 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Foxtrot was the album that catupulted Genesis into the spotlight,and followed on from the good work produced on Nursery Crime. It contains some fantastic pieces of brilliance,and well crafted Peter Gabriel lyrics. 'Watcher of the Skies' is a powerful opening track,followed by the beautiful 'Timetable' and the sing-a-long 'Get Em Out By Friday.' Gabriel brings power and thought to his singing,balanced well by Phil Collins,who provides crisp and solid druming. 'Horizons' is a beautiful instrumental,conjouring images of a quiet and serene paradise,with atmospheric acoustic playing by Steve Hackett. The epictrack of 'Supper's Ready' has several brilliant moments... the fun of Willow Farm and All Change,a great Hackett electric guitar solo,the lyrics,Tony Bank's keyboards,the great rythmn section of Collins and Rutherford,and the line about Narcissus...'a flower?' Foxtrot is worth buying for all this and much,much more! Buy it NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 30 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the album where Genesis first showed what a talent they really were. Not one track is throwaway here and the best ones include "Watcher of the Skies". This classic is superbly atmospheric and its opening sounds like modern trance music. Gabriel's voice has clearly matured and provides some in depth character performances on numbers such as "Get 'em out by Friday,". "Time Table," is suitably melodic and has some great piano riffs in it. "Can utility and the Coastliners," has some great guitar solos from Hackett and has stood the test of time well. "Horizons," acts a melodic filler before the superb "Supper's Ready," which features great work from all the band members and is as good as any other equivalent prog-rock compositions of its time. An essential recording by Genesis - one of their best, if not the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds absolutely fantastic 29 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have to disagree with the previous reviewer. This sounds several times better than the previous edition.

I, too, own the definitive edition from 1994. I only bought it a couple of years ago. Compared to more recent remasters from my other favourite prog bands like Yes and Jethro Tull, I always thought the definitive editions sounded very thin. Not only that, but there was audible hiss and distortion on all of them (particularly nursery cryme, the musical box sounded horrible in parts) to some degree.

These recent reissues do sound much better. Though there are some issues with compression, the improvement is absolutely phenomenal. In particular, Gabriel's voice and Collins' drumming are crisp and powerful. These songs actually sound like they are being played by a ROCK AND ROLL band, if you know what i mean. A very important part of the genesis sound is the contrast between etheral melodies and a sort of dark menace. Here, the menace hits harder than ever before, and makes the songs all the more palatable.

If you got the recent remaster of Trick of the Tail and were horrified at the compression, fear not. This is way better (as are all the 1970-1975 remasters) and worth your pretty penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered: Remarkable! 15 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
I hestitated purchasing this, mainly as a consequence of some of the comments already made about the audio results of the remastering process for this recording. After all, I have the LP on vinyl AND the first issued cd. Why would I want to buy it again?

Well, curiosity overtook me and in a moment of weakness I ordered it.

I'm glad I did.

Yes, it's still a muddy sound. All the way through I wanted to turn the trebble up and delve deeper into the mix as other remastered albums allow, but I assume the original recording of Foxtrot makes that difficult.

Having said that, there is more than enough extra detail exposed in this recording to marvel at that was criminally hidden in the original mix. I'll not go into specifics track by track as it's worth exploring that for yourself, alone in a darkened room, without being prompted.

It is sufficient to say that

1) Gabriel's voice is clearer and his phrasing can now be heard (unlike the original) which lends added vigour/sadness/emotion/interpretation to the songs. I now know why I've always found the post-Gabriel Genesis to be lacking in something

2)Individual instruments can be identified within the soundscape, opening up all sorts of interesting goings-on that have only been vaguely hinted at previously

3) Although I liked the album a lot before, I have discovered greater depth, enjoyment and greater appreciation (if it's possible)of the band's musicianship by listening to this remastered version.

There are faults (I would have liked to have greater clarity of Collin's drumming, for instance), it's not perfect, but if you like the original album you'll like this a lot more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great prog rock masterpiece 9 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album illustrates quite simply some of the best prog-rock songs ever created, and culminates in the 20-minute masterpiece that is 'Supper's Ready', a fairy-tale/adventure story which is broken up into a number of different sections, of quite markable contrast (my personal favourite being the head-twistingly impossible 'Apocalypse in 9/8 (Co-starring the Delicious Talents of Gabble Ratchet)' , which sees the band cruising along effortlessly in a 9/8 time-signature in perfect synchronicity as if they were playing 12-bar blues!).
My advice; if you're looking for something challenging, or fancy diversifying your record collection a bit, then buy this album. It's definitely a "sit down and listen to in one go" type of album; and its quite possible that your first listen might leave you saying "huh..? what the heck?", but it seriously grows on you and reveals something new on every listen. Now how many albums can you honestly say that about?
