The greatest prog rock song and one of the greatest pieces of music ever created, as far as I'm concerned. The fact that all the band members were only 21-23 at the time of recording is mind boggling. With all other long and epic musical pieces I enjoy, I still need a break from them and spread out my listens so I don't get burnt out. But something about Supper's Ready is addictive. It remains wholly fascinating and moving for every second, and I will sometimes listen to it several times a day and not tire of it! The live performances were insane as well, with Gabriel going through several costume changes and occasionally flying in midair on wires during the last section.

Great song, start to finish. Only gets better with every play. And that ending!

This the best 20 min epic ever recorded with Close To The Edge. The ending is surreal.

If Supper's Ready was shorter (which I'm glad it's not), it would be hailed in the same way that Stairway to Heaven and Bohemian Rhapsody are today.

You know a song is top tier when you can flip a coin on listening to the studio version or a live version because you aren't disappointed with either result.

The last two sections are just plain classic. What a way to close an album.

When I think of Gabriel-fronted Genesis this is the first song that comes to mind. One of my favorite Genesis songs. Over 23 minutes long without being boring for one second. This one song encapsulates everything great about Genesis during this era.

This may be my favourite song ever. The mix of instrumental virtuosity, unpredictability and catchy melodies is absolutely astonishing.

At the forefront of genesis's pinnacle, "supper's ready" is a grand, artistic statement full of comedic twists and serious turns. It's a concept album unto itself, something Gabriel would invest in on an album-wide scale 2 albums later.
