None of the three is a masterpiece, but I always thought that:
  1. Silent Sun
  2. Where the Sour turns to Sweet
  3. Am I very Wrong?
  4. In the Beginning
  5. A Place to Call my Own
Are all great songs for any band of the 60's, I'm sure that if Genesis would had never turned to Prog and with a good promotion, this album would had been extremely recognized.....But when Genesis released Trespass, the poor debut by a bunch of school kids paled.

The piano by Tony is brilliant and Peter's voice never sounded so clear, not Prog, but very good debut if you don't expect a Prog album..

My vote goes for the beautiful and extremely melodic "From Genesis to the Revelation".

This is one of the very few settings in which I would prefer Supertramp above Yes and Genesis.

Supertramp's debut is one of my all time favourite albums

Too bad it's so unknown and badly reputed , because it would've beaten that Yes debut flat out

Definitely ST. The whole album is surreal, homely, yet crimsonian. Really underrated.
Nothing to say here. Nothing at all. Nothing is easy.

From Genesis To Revelation, straight away. Brilliant! Followed by Yes then Supertramp - they weren't so good as debuts go, quite mediocre Smile

Yes got my vote.
I do love Genesis' debut album. I haven't listened to Supertramp's debut album in a really long time, never did much for me. I'll give it another chance though.
