Pre-Hackett or post-Hackett?

...And Then There Were Three

For some reason I can't seem to find my copy of TrespassAngry 
The poll made me want to revisit the old bugger - seeing as it's been years since I last heard it. I've heard The Watch's cover of Stagnation a few times though...

And then there were three is a new acquisition that I've only spun some 5 times, so no vote from me.

Trespass easily, has many great moments, whereas ATTWT is one of my three least favorite Genesis albums.

Not a fan of either tbh. Needs thinking about.

Two of my favorites from Genesis, I'll give the edge to Trespass.

Brilliant music on both albums, but I prefer And Then There Were Three.

Both great albums, but I gotta go with TRESPASS.

It's really a flawless album. Not a weak track on it and I can't say the same for WTW3.
The Ballad of Big is really one of my all time favourite genesis tracks....the budding of Neo prog.
Excellent song.

Trespass is one of my favourites. ...And Then There Were Three is mostly unbearable.

Trespass..."Visions of Angels" is a prog masterpiece.

Trespass is one of my favorite Genesis albums, very underrated, whereas And Then There Were Three is really boring to me

Trespass in a landslide. I no longer have my copy of And Then ... and I miss it not at all.

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.

ATTWT by a mile. Trespass is great(much better than Nursery Cryme IMO), but ATTWT is a better.

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. ;)

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.

I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

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