5 stars "Trespass" is the album that marks the true beginning of Genesis.Forget "From the Genesis to Revelation": This album shows the band in its true progressive rock.

For his year (1970), this album is highly desenvolved.Although that do not have Phil Collins on drums and Steve Hackett on guitar (they would be members from the following album "Nursery Crime") then the members in these positions, Anthony Philipps and John Mayhew, has nothing to dever.I prefer the Mayhew´s battery here than Collins in "Nursery Crime".

Most reviewers think "Visions of Angels" is below the first two songs, "Looking for Someone" and "White Mountain. " I think the opposite: these two songs are for me the weakest of album.Not that are weak, but they do not strike me as the others. "Visions of Angels", by contrast, is fantastic: a quiet music, which starts with the piano of Banks, before growing up to reach its powerful chorus.The instrumental section...oh my God! It's beautiful! When the music is repeated, this time with Banks using the mellotron (the first time he does this in the history of the band), I'm listening amazing.The songs from "b" side, "Stagnation" (pride) "Dusk" (pastoral) and "The Knife" (fantastic) complete this wonderful album, but I think only "Stagnation" is the height of "Visions from angels. "

Unfortunately, "Trespass" was not well in the sales question.But to me the only explanation for this is that this album was ahead of its time.
