4 stars The real progressive history of this band begins with Trespass and not with its predecessor (From Genesis to Revelation, which is a really a late 1960's type pop record). Looking for Someone, Visions of Angels, Stagnation and The Knife are outstanding material. Not their most consistent and cohesive material, but memorable vocals by Gabriel, twelve string work by Anthony Phillips and keyboarding by Banks are delightfully rich on this early effort. This album remains a sentimental favorite of mine. A blend of both driving, intense pieces and beautiful melodies, it is a flawed gem that sparkles brightly when viewed in the context of the limitations of early 1970s production.
