Haven't heard this track yet. Are there any long guitar solos in this song?

Do the lyrics mean people are sitting around having supper together?

Surely you can't be so afraid of the internet that you're incapable of finding all this out on your own, right?

Are people so terrified of long songs nowadays?

But seriously, just dive in. That's some of the greatest material Genesis ever put together.

Supper's Ready is great and all, but Watcher of the Skies is the real jam when it comes to Genesis.

I will fight for The Musical Box, the solo section is godlike!

However we can agree that they were absolutely awesome

From Trespass to Lamb it's pretty damn hard to go wrong, honestly.

I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums.

What the hell is going on in this thread?

The musical box is their best song though.
