TRESPASS easily. I think all of tracks of this Album are perfect. and don't forget "Looking for Someone" and "The Knife" released in 1970.

What do "smooth" and "even" mean in this context?

I'll agree that Trespass is very under rated and smoother than NC.  And I'll agree that Nursery Crime is not as even, but Gawd Nursery Crime is my favorite Genesis album ever!Cool

Nursery Cryme, if for Salmacis alone!

Trespass for me. Very underrated album. Nursery Cryme was a stepping stone to Foxtrot and developing the bands sound further and I think this is reflected in the sound of Nursery Cryme in the recordings. However, the tracks from Nursery Cryme on the Genesis Live album, well that's another story...

Cryme but really its mainly for Collins , less about Hackett and a slight preference overall for the songs . Fountain Of Salmacis betters anything on Trespass imo.

Not sure... Tresspass I guess. I feel Nursery Crime has higher highlits (or rather Highligt... with The Musical Box), but it also has many songs I really dislike. While I actually like just about the whole of Tresspass, with no song I really dislike, and The Knife being a rather good song too. The band does sound more mature with Nursery Cryme, though.

Once again, I really like Trespass, but Nursery Cryme is one of my favorite works of all time.

Clap

I was fortunate to see the Canadian band "The Musical Box" last night, performing their "Foxtrot" show....interestingly, they performed "The Knife," "The Musical Box," and "The Fountain of Salmacis" in their set, along with most of Foxtrot!  God, they were excellent!  

Nursery Cryme for me.

Easily Trespass. 

NC is all over the place.

They're both terrific.

However, The Musical Box and Fountain of Salamacis do not quite compensate for Harold the Barrel.

Trespass has better atmospheres and no tracks that are less than good, so it gets my vote.

Trespass. The classic Gabriel Era dryness and pastoral-ness was not put to the best use on Nursery Cryme, so it suffers a bit compared to Foxtrot and Selling England, as well as Trespass's beauty. While the first side of NC is excellent, the second pales a bit, while Trespass is very good throughout. And "Looking For Someone" is the best track out of not just these two, but all of the first three Genesis albums.
