Greetings!
 
I have been re-visting all the Genesis albums after a very long rest, and what a joy it has been! In particular I've been blown away (again) by the brilliance of Trespass. What an album!
 
So how do we feel about it?
 
Many seem to conclude that Foxtrot and SEBTP are the peak of Genesis - but for me Trespass is where it's at!

Seems to me a gap in choices between "finest hour" and "good in parts", and my answer would fall in there.  It is one of my favorite Genesis albums, so I'll go with the former option.

Not their finest hour, but somewhere in the middle part of my list of Genesis albums. Voted for option #2.

This album starts well and it ends well. Something is lacking in the middle ...

Option 2.
Fantastic album, but SEBTP stands out as their finest for me.

Oh look, ANOTHER Genesis poll. We haven't had one of those for a whole 10 minutes!

And your missing the rather obvious option of "Good album all the way through, but not their best".

Trespass is somewhere between "finest hour" and "good in parts". My favorite is Selling England by the Pound but I love all the Gabriel albums.

A very good album. Flawed in places but with an amazing atmoshphere. How can something sound ancient and yet 'fresh'..? That's how my ears interpret it anyway.

Stagnation is my favourite song on the album.

3.5 - 4 stars.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I'd have to give it another spin, since i didn't listened to it anymore since a long time ago. Anyway my fave was "Looking For Someone", listened to this track many times. However, Trespass didn't become my favourite, on the other hand The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway I consider my favourite for these more than 20 years since I first listened to it.

There are some good songs but it never is going to be really good because the production is so bad---

I love it but it is not their finest hour, so I will opt for the curator's egg.

Sometimes I think it might be their finest hour, so I've gone for the first option.
