Visions of Angels is good. Over all I would say the best tracks are "the knife" and "stagnation." The only one that's not that great is "dusk."

What's interesting is, they literally got better with each release through their first 5 albums(imo). How many bands can you say that about? And I even like the first album, although it sounds very 60's.

Excellent album. I give it much more time then any of the Gabriel led albums up to the Lamb. No bad tracks here. For me The Knife is the track that sticks out but not in a good way.

Love it.  I love others more, but I still come back to this one again and again.  Stagnation is the pick for me.  The build into Peter's ferocious vocal is mind-blowing.

Regarding things ' like Trespass'......one of my favorites is Fantasy....especially the second one called Beyond the Beyond.

It is my favourite Genesis album; there is something so special about Trespass-an atmosphere all it's own.

Trespass was a giant step towards artistic maturity for Genesis. Side 1 is pretty good, side 2 reaches masterpiece level (Stagnation, The Knife). Compared to this one, FGtR sounded like a schoolboy album, a dragon launched too young.

You might give Camelias Garden a chance. It sounds rather pastoral in a way, thus reminding me of Trespass.

perhaps, Trespass is the best album of the band. Each song is very great!

I’ve always considered Trespass a great, classic album, mainly because of what it represents, the beginning of a great journey for a great, influential band, but also for the great music on it.

True. The only thing that lets it down is the appalling recording quality.
A TVR is not a car. It's a way of life.

It's a pretty strong debut album. I count it as a debut album in the same way I regard the Days of Future Passed by The Moody Blues as their debut album, which of course techncially it isn't....

Whatever..

It's the first true Genesis album, and you can hear the Genesis sound and style taking shape. It's a bit rough around the edges, and as musicians they were still learning, although I doubt I could have played the drums even as well as John Mayhew at that age.

The Knife and Stagnation are may favourite tracks, but it's pretty consistent start to finish.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Perhaps Big Big Train last albums (since the Underfall Yard, and particularly the English Electric ones)... though I guess they have more of a Steve Hackett era feel more than a Phillips era. Or Harmonium (specially the fifth season one... though I guess the first one could be considered too).

Yeah, as a whole it may actually be the most pleasant Genesis album I have heard... yet it lacks the highlights other albums have (the closest would be "The Knife"). However, if you like this, you may like Anthony Phillip's "The Geese and the Ghost" too, it sort of has a similar feel, but even less song centered. I guess other Phillip's albums would be advisable too, but that's the one I know.

I think the secret's out. It's pretty much caught on as one of the classics. Personally i think it's my favorite. Against the grain for sure but it has something that they lost with Philips. On the other hand Foxtrot and Nursery Cryme are extremely boring to these ears. I can't listen to them at all and don't find them interesting until Selling England. In fact i'd rather listen to the pop stuff of the 80s! Shocked

Top 2 of the Gabriel era. Fox and Tres are the strong ones.
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.
