3 stars In the begninng.

Genesis first album is what it is, we all know there aren't any great epics on it or that Genesis feel we are used to. But hilariously enough, this album makes a great late 60s poppy Genesis a la Peter Gabriel. The music is actually so easy listening, it makes it enjoyable. I always smile when i listen to this. It's like looking at an old photograph and thinking "oh where it all began!". The only real problem with this debut album is that it just serves as that which makes an album only good, and nothing more. A harsh comparison which i yet dare to make is to compare this album to every late Beatles album. Gabriels voice is yet so immature, which also adds to the happy slappy feel of the album, and i can admit i sometimes want to listen this album through.

Nothing epic of course, or great, but still a good and solid debut album. 3 Stars
