This very first Genesis album has very little to do with the rest of the band's output. The music found here is very much a child of its time, which is the 60's. And comparing this with similar bands such as The Beatles, The Zombies, or whatever, it does not stand up very well. We have here a large number of three to four minute, rather mundane Pop tunes. There is not so much as a hint of what was to come on Trespass and later albums.

I really think that for all purposes other than stilling your curiosity and completing your collection, Trespass should be considered to be Genesis debut album. Let's just pretend From Genesis To Revelation was made by some other band and move on to Trespass!

This album is recommended for completionists only and for them it is really only either a collectors item or a historical document rather than an enjoyable listen in its own right.
