Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.7/100, a mean average of 81.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.9/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.0.

This album isn't just Supper's Ready. The opening track is full on with a fantastic introduction. Time Table is a beautiful song. The only track I don't really like is Get 'Em Out By Friday, I've never really taken to it. Coastliners is up there as one of the best Genesis tracks. Horizons beautifully showcases Steve's talent. As for Supper's Ready, well it deserves all of the plaudits. For me and without doubt it is the best piece of music ever written by a rock band. It is my favourite track. The musical pieces within it are truly astounding.

This is their best work overall. It's a little underrated, and I get it, it's only 6 songs. But Supper's Ready is truly superior: the best prog rock song ever I would say. Watcher of the Skies is specially good, and Get 'Em Out by Friday also superb. Time Table and Can-Utility and the Coastliners aren't my favorites, nor is Horizons, but they compliment the album well enough.

Supper's ready is an artistic statement by itself. It feels like the rest just paves the way, but there are plenty more moments of greatness here.

The album that proved that Genesis would be prog masters. Everything gels together so well here. There's hardly a moment where you're uninterested. Watcher of the Skies is a perfect opener and a contender for Genesis' best song, and of course Supper's Ready is fantastic as well. Get 'Em Out by Friday is an underrated gem that's more than worth your time. Those three are essential, everything else is strongly recommended. Perhaps even more importantly, Foxtrot began a four-album run that remains unmatched in true progressive rock (unless you count Pink Floyd's Dark Side-WYWH-Animals-The Wall as true prog).

This is the best Genesis album by far, just for having Suppers Ready alone! Every other track is just as good, with Time Table being just slightly less impressive than everything else. Despite that I still consider this one of the few perfect Prog Rock albums. Suppers Ready is an absolute masterpiece and the band could have quit right there if they wanted to, and still be legends going out on top. I think Horizons is a severely underrated track, serves as a great preparation for Supper's Ready, and sounds like something Bach would have composed for guitar if he could.

El segundo mejor disco de Genesis en mi opinión. Un disco fundamental en una colección de rock progresivo y yo diría de música rock en general. Watcher Of The Skies y Supper´s Ready son dos temas formidables.

I really like this album because it is just so epic, beautiful, and inspiring. I think Supper's Ready is more accessible than any other sidelong epic ever made, yet it is still extremely complex and in my opinion the most epic of all! This is music you can really feel.
