I'll be the minority and vote for Trespass. I feel like they were pushing too many boundaries with NC and it doesn't all run as smooth as Trespass does. Plus, The Knife is my third favourite Genesis song while the hugely overrated Musical Box is like twentieth.

Easy vote for Trespass. I feel a lot of emotion in those songs, all of them, whereas Nursery Cryme feels a bit over poked to me. I think Hogweed is ideal for that kind of exaggerated delivery, but the others, though fine songs all, just don't resonate as much as the average Trespass song. Of course, The Musical Box is also a classic piece of musical drama, but I've kind of maxed out on it over the years and don't feel like listening to it as much any more.

I like the musicians on both albums, but the songs are stronger in my opinion on Nursery.

Well you all know my choice, but I just wanted to know why more people prefer Nursery Cryme to Trespass. The addition of Hackett and Collins of course improves the overall musicianship within the band, but I think the melodies on Trespass are more serene and effortless, with the aggressive moments from The Knife done better than The Return Of The Giant Hogweed. The lyrics and narratives are also more interpretable, plus Rutherford and Phillips make a killer combo in creating a strong atmosphere (along with Mayhew's fitting drumming, even if it is pretty below par). The keyboards are less developed on Trespass, but the guitars occupy the space just as well. If you do prefer Trespass though, also say why. I'd love to know what the albums mean to you, and what puts one above the other/what more you could possibly want from either of these masterpieces Big smile

Anyway, thanks for any feedback!
