Even the worst are pretty good. Which makes the Genesis album unique in the 80s era of pop horrendousness. But Wind and Wuthering has One For The Vine which sneaks it just ahead. Oh and it's the only one to have Steve Hackett on guitar. Trespass is a beautiful album though.

Wind & Wuthering, then Trespass, but the self-titled one isn't too rediculously far behind... it's not exactly the same kind of music, but it's really good at being what it is.

Here we go, Roop's vote goes to the "Yellow" one again...
with "Trespass" as the 2nd and W&W the last.
Why ? I think that "Genesis" is a very good pop-album,
while the other two cannot really live up to
"Trick of the Tail" and the classic-line up's albums.
W & W is dying in its beauty.

Wind and Wuthering. Trespass a distant second.

Trespass easily, as you could guess from my picture. Then Genesis. I have never been at all fond of Wind and Wuthering, even the Genesis album I'd put far above Wind and Wuthering.

Yes, I wonder if he was reading Goethe's Werther at the time. Sorry, obscure literary joke.

Curse you!Angry I was going to post this:

W&W for me, but Trespass lags not far behind.

(Another obscure literary joke: The original version of Shelley’s Ode to the West Wind ended with, "When winter comes, spring lags not far behind". Luckily he changed it to "If winter comes, can spring be far behind?").
He say nothing is quite what it seems;
I say nothing is nothing

Easy, Wind and Wuthering! Love "One for the Vine"
