This album is perfect Genesis!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Foxtrot (Remastered) (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!

Had this album taped in '72 or '73 and over the years dis-appeared like a sock in the washing machine--thats what happens when you dont pay for what you get.Bought it just recently and it sounds as good as it did all those years ago.
