3 stars The Genesis album Trespass is the first where we find the Genesis sound; not exctly as we know it, but more signposts that point the way than not. We are still looking for the classic Genesis band - we still have Anthony "Ant" Phillips(one of the original founders of the group whose influence will still be felt on Nursery Cryme) on guitars and John Mayhew on drums(his first and only album with Genesis).

Some of the cuts on this album point toward the future, both lyrically and musically. The most important of these cuts are The Knife, Stagnation, and Loking for Someone. Dusk, White Mountain, and Visions of Angels hearken back to the first Genesis, more poppy album.

This is a decent album and pivitol in Genesis' development, yet not a must have for all progressive rock fans.
