Which do you prefer: Script by Marillion or Trespass(considered the first proper album) by Genesis.

Trespass !! (The drumming doth not make this album)

Trespass. Maybe I tend to underappreciate Script a bit.

Script for a Jesters tear, honestly. Feels weird to vote for the knockoff though!

haven't heard the album besides The Knife, but the vote i guess is for Trespass in that case.

UPDATE: first time i heard it in its entirety; not what i was totally expecting, i thought it would be more folky than what was put there. at least, in other words, i thought there would be more acoustic stuff on it.

I like Script, but it's the poorest of their first 5 albums.

Trespass is close to being the best Genesis album.

Trespass is fantastic, but not that fantastic i think. I would take W&W over it. 

For Marillion - Script is the second best album of theirs, behind Clutching For Straws for me.

For me, it's got to be Trespass.

Script is my least favorite Marillion album. They had not quite gelled yet and seemed to by trying too hard to be something they were not (they got there soon, though). I have always enjoyed Trespass and prefer it overall to something as highly rated as Foxtrot. No question or doubt about it.

Script for me. As far as I know them, it's my favourite album from them so far, and the title song is one I can't help but love. Tresspass is perhaps the most cohesive album from Genesis, and the only one in which I can say that I don't hate any song, so overall it may almost be my favourite album from them... but it's not got any higlight such as the ones they would later release (except maybe for The Knife).

Genesis' Trespass by a million miles. Don't like Marillion and can't stand Fish.

Mmm... strange, since whatever I dislike from Fish is just about the same things I dislike from Gabriel.

I'd take Gabriel at his lowest point even when Fish was at his highest point. In other words, Gabriel is IMHO a better musician and his voice is certainly more tolerable than Fish's constant yammering.

Script for a Jester's Tear By Marillion

Both equally. Trespass for being the first real prog album by Genesis, my favourite band of all time, and Script for keeping thr prog flag flying in the early 80's in a very respectable way.

It's also the only Marillion album I really enjoy..

Script. 
I don't listen to Trespass all that much. It has a few great cuts like Stagnation and The Fork, but greater things were indeed to come.

You got it wrong, it's The Spoon........

I prefer Spoonful from the days of Clapton's drug-fuelled adventures.

I like script and its a 5 star album IMO BUT Trespass is a exact masterpiece(IMO again!!). I think there are a thin line between "5 star  albums" and "Masterpieces" (IMO!!)

Well, the thing is that I don't really like this kind of singers, so neither of them sound particularly better or worse to me. I would say that I like the music on their bands in spite of the vocals.

Trespass. It's a milestone, it's intricate, delicate, ornate, sophisticated, soulful, fairy tale-like, and there's nothing else like it. Script is quite good but not a match for Trespass.

It seemed like I recall you liking Steve Rothery, though, or am I mistaken?

Marillion, Script for a Jester's Tear.

Trespass. Never cared for Marillion in any of its incarnations.

Script is quite good, but Trespass is a masterpiece.
