5 stars Hey, I haven’t reviewed this one yet. Gonna do right now!!!

“Trespass” had one of the first GENESIS songs that I fell in love with immediately – “White Mountain”, almost 7 minutes of bliss for me, a Prog newbie 5 years ago. “Looking for Angels” with Gabriel’s opening (sounding like Ozzy Osbourne to my ears!!!) had some incredible places as well, but I had to grow up to appreciate it in its full beauty. More gentle pieces like “Dusk” and “Vision of Angels” made almost in a pastoral manner, played mostly on acoustic instruments. Two main album’s epics, “Stagnation” and “The Knife”, balance on polar sides; the first one is a half-acoustic mellotronized ballad with pompous coda, while the second one is an unquestionable highlight of early concerts, dramatic and catchy battle sketch with awesome instrumental section.

Despite some average moments (every album has its own lacks), this is still a solid record, which entered a way for GENESIS to The Top Prog League. I simply can’t understand people who prefer band’s debut to “Trespass”! It’s a Must, an essential record, not to be missed!!!
