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.

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.

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...

Nursery Cryme, if for Salmacis alone!

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

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

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.

Not that Trespass is bad album. On the contrary. But it isn't on par with Nursery Cryme. I've always counted Trespass as a start album of their sound and compositions (after the first one FGTR), but the classic line-up and true Genesis songs style is to be found only at NC. Musical Box is one of their best songs they ever wrote and there are another great ones on the NC album (Seven Stones, The Return Of Giant Hogweed or Fountain of Salmacis).
My vote goes proudly to NC without slightest hesitation :-)

Well, they say that numbers don't lie. Wink

Nursery Cryme...no brainer.
Now if it had been between Nursery Cryme and Foxtrot, that would be a pickle
Thank you for supporting independently produced music
