5 stars OH WOW! This record is a true improvement compared to the previous one! How can they change so drastically? One will not complain! They changed for the best! Honestly, I find "Trespass" quite better than "Nursery Cryme"! "Trespass" is better made, more consistent, much more catchy and addictive! "Trespass" is among the best Genesis' records, obviously after "Selling England by the pound" and "Foxtrot". The songs are quite elaborated and rhythm changing. There are many subtle, mellow and delicate parts. I like the combination flute-bass-piano-mellow guitar: it is very pleasant to hear. The choir-like mellotron parts are excellent, and Anthony Phillips' guitar is OUTSTANDING, especially the acoustic one. Steve Hackett is not on this record, and Phillips really does a great job! The drums played by Mayhew (not Collins) are not as coarse as on "Nursery Cryme". Rutherford plays very well his elaborated bass. ALL the tracks are at least EXCELLENT! There are no fillers! Banks' keyboards are excellent and efficient, and surprisingly he does not make very complex arrangements. Gabriel's voice is loud, present and moving. Usually, the guitars used are acoustic, except on the track "Knife", where Phillips has an incisive electric hard rock sound: impressive: he has nothing to envy from Steve Hackett! 5 stars is well deserved for this gem!
