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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Trespass has been enjoying a bit of a renaissance - it used to be passed over as a transitional album before the "real" Genesis took off.  I like it but it's recorded so poorly, a problem I had with most Genesis recording right up to Trick.  ATTWT is a fun record, but it's also a transitional album but the future that laid before Genesis following Trespass and following ATTWT are very different paths.  That's a reason why one would prefer Trespass....it points to grander things and ATTWT points to......pop ballads.  Still, I love ATTWT - it's an underrated record that deserves a reassessment along the same lines as Trespass.

^^ Gud assessment there.,
Still prefer Trespass though.

How is this even a question? Trespass is an ambitious and exciting effort by a band that has not yet fully matured but clearly has a vision. ATTW3 is a lazy and bloated offering from the remnants of a once-great band that has reached its sell-by date.

Trespass (my other favourite Genesis album is And Then There Were Three)
