3 stars Other than Gabriel's nice vocals, one might not be able to notice how potential this band is upon hearing this album. The songs are typical sixties pop and I read from Armando Galo's 1977 book on Genesis, quoting the band members, that the producer had screwed up the sounds by adding strings. But I can imagine the production without the strings. It would have more sounds of guitars and the keys. That would not have essentially changed the 'pop' structures-- but would have given a more sixties pop flavour. Compared to this debut album, the Yes debut album had better structures-- even though those did not represent what Yes was capable of. This album is an easy listen one. There is no reason to trash it or laugh at it. The Genesis at that time was all around 18 years. So doing something radically at that age and also at that late sixties period would have been very very surprising.
