4 stars This is a very delightful album from Israel.

It starts as a very funky, jazzy album and then proceed to touch base with both the symphonic prog, the neo-prog and the jazz/fusion scene. Well, mostly symphonic prog although it starts as an almost fusion album at the opening seconds of Creatures Of The Night. But it turns more into a commercial neo-prog song with some ELP influences too. This kinds of sets the standard here. Other songs also has some folk-rock and GENESIS influences. Most songs has a strong jazz influence too. This album is an open minded church, if you get my drift. It is also pretty much influenced by the GENESIS album which has given the name to this band. Parts of this album is pastorial. Other parts is more ELP and other parts is jazzy again. Everything is down to this excellent keyboard player Gil Stein. A man whose work cannot be praised highly enough on this album. He also does the guitars and even they are excellent. Keith Emerson; you have got company.

The music is very beautiful and haunting symphonic prog on Troya and Orpheus Suite and commercial neo-prog on City Lights. The first two are excellent. The last one not so good. This si an album I thoroughly enjoy both now and very probably in the future too. This album has hidden layers I have yet to explore, I believe. I have also just got their second album and I am looking forward to that one too. I think TRESPASS is an excellent band. Both they and this album is most definate worth exploring.
