This album helped me become a prog rock fan. Love every track of this album, especially supper's ready which contains some of the best sound I've heard in my life.

Supper's Ready is still one of the best songs ever written. At the least in top 20.

Much better prog than the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. I really like the acoustic guitar solo Horizons. It reminds me of one of my favorite operas, the Barber of Seville!

From Peroon
One of my favorite albums of all time. They really made something special, something groundbreaking with this album. Supper's ready is surely one of the best songs ever written, with its extraordinary lyrics, music, complex structure and magnificent ending. The peak of progressive rock, along with Close to the Edge in my opinion.
Other songs are great too, there are no fillers, Get 'Em out by Friday and Can-Utility are my favorites besides Supper's Ready.

More accessible, consistent, and well-produced than its two predecessors and two successors, Foxtrot remains the peak of Genesis' catalogue. It just barely edges out The Lamb in my opinion, because unlike that album, there is absolutely zero filler here. Nothing but brilliant arrangements, lyrics, vocals, and instrumentation throughout. Best prog record of 1972; maybe the best prog record of all time. There are very few albums that come close to this one, and even fewer that surpass it. The ultimate artistic statement of this lineup
