5 stars Here I must agree with the previous reviewer "Australian". TRESPASS definately competes for the crown of "Best Genesis Album of All Time". Every track on this monumental breakthrough record epitomizes what ProgRock would become. Dynamics, lyrics, variation, vocals, acoustic guitars, electric guitars, 12 string guitars, piano, organ, mellotron, loud, quiet, fast, slow, IT HAS EVERYTHING . . . . . .except great production. Well, it lacks great drumming as well, but that only slightly diminishes from the luster of this CD, but not from its profundity. GABRIEL, while less theatrical than he would later come to be, is far more raw and vulnerable on TRESPASS than on any other Genesis recording. He's young, he's angry, he's shy, he's a show-off, he's clever, he's had his heart broken, and he's hungry for success!!! That's always a winning combination. Also, these guys finally learned how to play their instruments. Those things, coupled with the other great musical genius in the band, ANTHONY PHILLIPS, makes this an album for the ages. There is no doubt that GABRIEL and PHILLIPS were the guiding lights of this band. Listen to the magic of their last collaborative effort!
