A fantastic album, but I feel as though The Knife would easily win this poll, so I'll go with the other 5 very strong songs. I give it to Stagnation, a beautiful pastoral prog piece that always wows me.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Stagnation has always been my fav track on this mini-masterpiece.

First vote for it and not surprised considering how out of touch my tastes and theirs seem to be.

Looking for someone.. do doubt... loved that from first listen.  That connected very strongly.  I loved the sense of atmosphere in that one. 

Typical genesis album IMO.  Great moments.. the beginning and end.. and then you have the rest of album.  Sleep inducing

The whole album is wonderful.

Sleep inducing? I'd call it atmospheric.

Foe sleep inducing see any Keith Emerson solo.

This. Although I like the music of the whole album, this song stands out for me.

Yes to 'Stagnation' - such a GREAT song!  I almost feel that they threw "The Knife" in, as a way to appeal to the protesting sentiment of the time:  1968-1970 (Definitely an anti-Vietnam War period piece; but, whether it was in Britain at the time, I don't have a clue since I am an American).  You can see why the Italians rejoiced over the album (all but "The Knife," to be sure), since it was in sync with their classical sentiments and sympathies...

HERESY!  Burn the heretic!  (Sorry for the overly religious tones on your sentiment - but...)

OK, I'll be the odd man out on this one - Visions of Angels. White Mountain a near second.

The second ever Genesis album I heard (a Christmas present from my parents - some 40 years ago - on cassette) and I still love it.  I even like Daevid Allen's cover version of 'Visions'...

I'm going for Visions of Angels, but the whole album's superb.

Perhaps their most consistent work overall.

Stagnation is arguably the best earliest example of that classic Genesis sound, but I'm casting my vote toward the lovely Dusk, just because no one else has yet. A beautiful song, and the perfect lead to the more aggressive finale of The Knife......

Looking for Someone is my favorite on the album.  The Knife would place fourth for me.

That was the best thing about classic Genesis: they knew how to open an album. "Looking For Someone" is my top track from Trespass.

Stagnation just above Dusk. The others are somewhat behind.
