1 stars The first Genesis album. Released in 1969, this sounds more like something from 1966. This isn't even proto-prog. Most of the music here sounds like 60s Bee Gees. Clearly this is the work of teenagers who are not sure exactly what they are trying to do. There is nothing here that gives you a hint of what they will sound like on Trespass.

"In the Beginning" and "In The Wilderness" are in the league of decent songs. The former has some great feedback at the beginning, while the latter has the only good use of orchestra on the album. "The Serpent" has some good electric guitar and organ. "The Conquerer" is one of the better songs. At the end of "Fireside Song" you can hear a preview of "Twilight Alehouse". The best song is "One Eyed Hound" which is the b-side to "Winter's Tale". It may be a bonus track but it's the best thing on the whole CD.

This is only for people who want everything Genesis did. This is the worst studio album they ever did. The work of amateurs with no sense of direction. Awful production to boot. This honestly does not deserve anything more than 1 star.
