Trespass without a doubt. Genesis aswell as the majority of the older bands, at the time, became extremely mediocre.

ATTWT easily.

Trespass has some absolute gems on it, but none as good, in my opinion as Burning Rope, Undertow, The Lady Lies and Down and Out.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Trespass would be the best Genesis album for me if it was recorded better.

It sounds like it's been recorded in a swimming pool with the water in.

Yes man! I've always felt this way as well. Other than the LLDOB, I find Trespass to be Gabriel's best vocal performance.
Great album. Might be a tad underrated as well. ;)
I kneel to the alter of ARCAM.

Quite honestly, as with most of these favourite questions, it depends on the mood I'm in. I think 'And Then' is underated. Applying any kind of critical listening it is clearly far more the precursor and template for all the subsequent 'Neo-Prog' which followed than any of their early classic material. The concise songs, airbrushed production, jaunty but rarely melodramatic or virtuosic keyboard arpeggios, mix of personal and fantasy lyrics, back-grounding of the acoustic elements...I love 'Deep in the Motherlode', 'Say It's Alright Joe', 'Burning Rope','Scenes from a Night's Dream (What a simple but powerful guitar lick!) and 'The Lady Lies' more than the poppier stuff, although 'Undertow' is a fine surging ballad. Some of these songs had much greater punch live -'Scenes' and 'Say It's Alright Joe'in particular (Although long versions of 'Follow' don't half drag on...)
Guess these reservations maybe give Trespass the edge as there really isn't a track I don't like on it and love that Ant Phillips guitar.
