4 stars The 12 string guitar sound of GENESIS began, in my opinion, in "From Genesis To Revelation", which, for me, it wasn`t a whole 60s pop album. Their first album also has the seeds of their original style, which developed more in "Trespass". It seems that Charisma Records gave them more confidence and freedom to do what they liked. "Trespass" was a more clear step to Progressive Music. Peter Gabriel`s theatrical vocals started to be present in this album. For me, Peter Gabriel is an actor/singer, and despite he is not one of my favourite musicians (as I prefer Genesis without him, between 1976-82, and sometimes him without Genesis), I respect his talent. "Trespass" has very good songs. There are some things that I don`t like very much. First, I don`t like the drums. John Mayhew, as Banks and Rutherford said in some interviews in the 80s, played the drums as the other members of the band told him. He did a good job, but I prefer Phil Collins.Another thing that I don`t like is the quality of the recording. But Anthony Phillips`influence and importance in GENESIS are clear in his two albums with the band as a composer and as good guitarist. Tony Banks`s style developed a more secure sound, using the mellotron. "Trespass" is a very good album.
