4 stars A foreshadowing of all greatness to come. This is the beginning of the greatness that was the "classic Genesis". Steve Hackett and Phil Collins had not yet joined the band, but Gabriel, Banks and Rutherford were taking great steps in their wonderful journey to the greatest prog band of all times. Trespass is not a masterpiece, but is a fine beginning. Ant Phillips was a great guitarist also, and it would have been interesting to see where Genesis would have travelled without his stagefright making him leave the band. The Knife was the first of the Genesis epics, a great song that stands with their best. Stagnation is probably the best trrack on the album, comparable with any of Genesis' top tracks other than Firth of Fifth, Supper's Ready and the Fountain of Salmacis. Ant's 12 string in White Mountain is wonderful. The rest of the tracks are good, but nothing special. Not an essential album, but a very good one, and a must for any Genesis fan.
