3 stars One of the better Genesis albums.

And that's coming from a non-fan, so it must mean something (or maybe it doesn't). Other than SEBTP, this might be the next best Genesis album. Of course, the best quality might be that there is no Phil Collins. Trespass feels the most artistic and perhaps the most genuine. While others I have found to be a bit overblown and too bland sounding, this record feels much more sincere and the musicianship is still there.

I'm sure I'm also one of the few who cares nothing for The Knife. It's the heaviest track on here and the one I like the least. It sounds more like the later Genesis outputs as well, while the other 5 songs have an innocence about them that makes them sublime and beautiful. The Knife, for me, sticks out like a sore thumb among a bunch of other really good tracks.

A good output by one of the most revered bands in prog rock. A bit different from the works of their "classic" lineup, but I've found it to be a very good listening experience. A great little bit in the early history of progressive rock.
