3 stars On a day, Jonathan King created Genesis, and he saw it was good... Actually, he was the manager of the group and created the name Genesis for them. Four boys, named Anthony Banks, Michael Rutherford, Peter Gabriel and Anthony Philips wanted to write songs for other people. The problem was that they couldn't find anybody to perform them, so they decided to perform the songs by themselves.

With drummer Chris Stewart they recorded their first single 'The Silent Sun' and soon, the LP 'From Genesis To Revelation' was released, with drummer Jonathan Silver, who replaced Stewart. Thirteen beautiful songs were recorded, with Peter Gabriel's vocals and the other members backing him. Acoustic guitars, bass, piano and percussion were added to complete the music. Although this is the very first Genesis-album ever, the music is very different compared to everything the band did after this album. This recording never has been very succesfull anyway, but soon, Tony Smith signed them to his Charisma-label and they recorded the great 'Trespass' in 1970.

The songs on the record are always melodic, subtle and sweet and full of different music-genres. It doesn't really fit in the Genesis-catalog, but overall, it's a good album. And it's just that. The world of Genesis began.
