Cryme is simply a better album and a higher evolutionary phase in Genesis music that would be better realized on Foxtrot and SEbtP.

I have to go for Nursery Cryme here because (a) it has the better songs - Musical Box, Hogweed, Salmacis and (b) it was the first prog album I heard, I think it was the bizarre stories about killer plants and people cutting their toes off for tea that first intrigued me.
 
And Musical Box has the best ending to a prog song ever.

Trespass is my favourite Genesis album. It somehow does things for me the others don't. And by comparison, Trespass is a more cohesive record than Nursery Cryme.

Nursery Cryme fairly easily. Trespass is a great album, but NC is just a ste forward in quality and has Phil on the drums!
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Trespass is consistent. Nursery has about 3 mediocre tracks
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

I really love some of Genesis' music.  However, I think that a lot of their albums are overrated; that probably puts me in the minority here at Prog Archives.  I think that Trespass is definitely one of their best.
I am the funkiest man on the planet!

I think of Trespass as a "nascent" album.  Like "Time and a Word," it reveals a band in the process of becoming something, but not having arrived yet.  The songs are still held back by fairly conventional ideas and forms.

I've showered a lot of love on Trespass in a variety of threads in the past. There's nothing shameful in it not being the equal of Nursery Cryme. It's still a rare gem.
