3 stars It's a beautiful album, but almost nothing beyond that. TRESPASS is a very airy, folksy album that is pretty different than the future classics other than the omnipresence of twelve-string guitar sections. While many progsters into pretty music might find this to be a pre-Genesis classic, I have to disagree. It's a very boring album.

The first three tracks are the most nondescript, sedated tracks to come out of the Genesis canon. It's perfect music for me to fall asleep to, not to listen at will. ''Stagnation'' is somehow an exception to this as a little life is pumped into the middle section, only to fall back to similar soundscapes in ''Dusk''.

''The Knife'' is the oddball track here, the only tune here other than parts of ''Stagnation'' I'm willing to get behind. Genesis goes insanely heavy here with distorted bass and biting organ, and the piece is filled with melodramatics. The middle gives the group breathing room before going on an all-out assault at the end. It's the intensity of a track such as ''The Knife'' that can turn a weak album into a decent/good one.

Sinusoid | 3/5 |
