It was always one of my favorites. And thankfully one of my wife's favorites as well.

The section of 'Stagnation' that was built into the 76-77 live versions of 'I know what I like always puts a bit of a lump in my throat.. Great to hear Los Endos doing that version recently.

Good points made - I also picked up on the 'Stagnation' bit that Los Endos played during the Seconds Out set and it brought a real smile on my face and some hairs standing up on the back of the neck! I'd forgotten it was in that version of 'I Know What I Like'!

I think it's over looked too although maybe not by most hardcore Genesis fans. I think because it didn't have Steve or Phil on it is why. Also, I give it bonus points because it was released the year I was born. Smile

Hmm..perhaps familiarity breeds contempt? Or maybe some boredom, but Trespass is an absolute prog classic.

I mostly play modern stuff lately, perpetually catching up with new releases from bands reviewed here, but ya, this is one of my long time favs .

I think the next few albums are better, but this one just feels easier to listen to.
Off the top of my head, i think Visions of Angels is probably my favourite track.

I've always thought it was one of Genesis's top 4 or 5 albums.

Good album and I also don't play it enough......so with that in mind I'll play it as I do the house work since the wife is actually at work.

Even a regular diver back into the Genesis back catalogue like myself still overlooks Trespass more than I should. While it has a naivity and rawness to it of a band finding its feet and a low-fi production quality (this is the album Steven Wilson should have a go at remixing to give it that extra kick), I am always pleasantly surprised by its charm, pastoral feel and song quality.

The Knife is an obvious favourite (you could have knocked me down with a feather when it was played on the 1980 Duke tour at the Manchester Apollo). I'm sure Marillion had this in mind when they produced Market Square Hereos. I've seen 'White Mountain' performed superbly by the UK tribute band - Los Endos too. However, I think Stagnation is a fantastic track and is the clear forerunner to The Musical Box and Supper's Ready, and I often keep forgetting it is Ant playing rather than Steve at times.

I'm not trying to raise it above the classic albums that followed, but, with the slight reservations I've mentioned, is it an album that you revisit from time to time and enjoy? If so, do you have a favourite track?
