3 stars From 'From Genesis To Revelation' to Genesis-revelation

Even though From Genesis To Revelation was the first Genesis album, Trespass can be seen as the first real Genesis album. It was the first progressive one, anyway. It is harder to get into compared with many later Genesis albums, but over more listens I have grown to like it more than I used to. Indeed, The Knife is one of my favourite Genesis songs of all time. It rocks harder than anything else on this album. The rest is a bit more mellow. Such important members as Steve Hackett and Phil Collins had not yet joined the band at this time. Guitar duties being handled by Anthony Phillips (who, after having been replaced by Hackett, wouldn't be heard from at all until his solo debut in 1977).

Trespass certainly contains some very good music, but it is generally not up to the standards of what came after it. It is certainly not the place to start if you don't know Genesis.

For fans and collectors of Genesis (like myself) this is, of course, an essential addition. But for everyone else it is probably not.

A good album - no more, no less!
