4 stars Can you believe it's the last Genesis record that I purchased for my collection? I even got a taste of Invisible Touch before this one. I guess I feared a poor album with lame sound and performance. Well, the sound could be better, but the performance is loud and proud. THESE GUYS ARE GOOD. Even compared to todays standards (Stolt, Morse, Echolyn, Anglagard, Dream Theater), the determination to create a world and a sound, providing innovation and irreverence to "easy music", is flagrant.

I said this before, but none of these guys were over 20 when this was written. Trespass is delicate, fragile, romantic, innocent, pastoral and has a graveyard feel to it. I just like the mood of the album. The cover by Whitehead is the icing. Perfect for heavy, cloudy days dreaming you're a young adventurer looking for a quest (or romance, why not?). So mature, yet so young. Once again, moody and somewhat not totally achieved. The "whole" sound is not mastered, Collins subtle drums are missed.

It's actually the beginning of a fantastic journey with Genesis...and this ain't no false start.
