2 stars Is this really the same Trespass that is supposed to sound like Genesis and Marillion ? Have I got the right CD ? The CD says I am listening to the German band named Trespass and not the Israeli band named Trespass. The Israeli band sounds like Genesis though........

This album consists of three songs. One long and two short ones. The sound is good on the long song and pretty muddy on the final two songs. I don't get the feeling that the same record studio has been used throughout this album.

Genesis only shows up on the two final songs Luna Walk (in particular) and on Beggars Of Paris. The forty-four minutes long main song Crew Of The Orion contains a lot of references to the likes of Pendragon and Saga (the Canadian pomp prog band) and hardly any references to Genesis. And Marillion...........well...... no. This song is a total overkill which does not get any better after ten listening sessions. It is a pomp prog & neo prog pastisj..... of nothing. The two mercifully shorter ones Luna Walk Beggars Of Paris is slightly better though.

It is the order of the nature that some organisms is good and some is at best mediocre. This album is in the latter category. This is not a good album and it is only saved by the two short songs. The long one is more a torture instrument than a proper prog rock epic. This is not for me, I am afraid.
