Editorial Reviews

Finally! The second Genesis album is out on CD, the one whose supporting tour remains perhaps the most theatrical rock show ever mounted! With the original line-up including Peter Gabriel (and no Phil Collins).

Customer Reviews

In the year 1969, Genesis released their debut album, "From Genesis to Revelation".
Count Dracula
In a way Trespass reaches the pureness of Genesis, there is what I consider one of the best progressive rock and no prog rock album ever made.
Alessio
A lot of people say KNIFE is the stand out, and it is very good, but I think the other songs are just as good.

Genesis debuted in 1969 with "From Genesis To Revelation," and although it's a good album overall, it's tarnished somewhat by producer Jonathan King, who smothered most of the band's songs with horns & string arrangements, making them sound more like an orchestral outfit than a rock band. But with new producer John Anthony onboard, Genesis totally shifted into high gear with their second album, 1970's "Trespass," and delivered their first real masterpiece---they truly became a band with this one. "Trespass" has been somewhat overlooked by record buyers over the years, as it doesn't feature Phil Collins on drums or Steve Hackett on lead guitar, but fear not: guitarist Anthony Phillips, in his second & final album with the band, is an amazing player himself (and for further proof of this, check out his wonderful catalog of solo albums), and John Mayhew, in his only album with the group, is no Phil Collins, but his drumming here is certainly good (if it wasn't, I don't think the band would've hired him in the first place), and he gets the job done. The classic Genesis line-up with Collins & Hackett were still one album away, but the "Trespass" line-up of the band still deliver the goods in tremendous fashion. "Looking For Someone" is the incredible opener, starting with Peter Gabriel's unique voice breaking through the silence, with the rest of the band later joining in to create a rock piece filled with wonderful drama & atmosphere. "White Mountain" is appropriately titled, starting with Tony Banks' lone mellotron giving one the feeling of being in the snow-covered mountains somewhere.Read more ›

Whether pre or post Gabriel, pre or post Hackett, this is remarkably overlooked as one of the real touchstones of the classic era of progressive art rock. Guitarist Anthony Phillips, acknowledged by the other original members as the band leader, left after this recording due to serious bouts with depression and stage fright.

Rock criticism has always had contempt for anything that was not completely proletariat. 3 chords and a gob of spit could get you a Village Voice rave. Thus, anything high concept or classically influenced was lambasted as pretentious, pompous, or bombastic. Sadly, they just don't make bands (or albums) like this anymore. Don't miss it.

In July 1970, Genesis released it's second album, "Trespass." Like their first album, "From Genesis To Revelation," it too vanished without a trace. However, all was not lost. "Trespass" was important for three reasons:
1. It got the attention of the British Music Scene, especially in London (bands like Yes, Pink Floyd & Humble Pie were taking notice).
2. The album officially put Charisma Records on the map (even though the Nice's fourth album, "The Five Bridges Suite" was before it.
3. 'The Knife' was not only a hit but would become a stage favourite for the early years.
Just as Genesis was signed on Charisma Recors & before this album was released, Guitarist 'Ant' Phillips was not celebratory at all. Due to his stage fright, he would later resign. His lead guitar work on 'Looking For Someone' & 'The Knife' wasn't the greatest but it seem to be perfect in the right spots. John Mayhew wasn't bad either. His drumming was okay, more basic & his background vocals was decent. Mayhew would comment later on some stiff profound statements after he was fired. Genesis would find the final missing ingredients in Phil Collins (June, 1970) & Steve Hackett (Late December 1970) in their next album.
If you look closely at the album itself, you can see all 6 songs on the cover & the back. Let me describe: The couple looking out at the scenery, they're 'Looking For Someone.' The mountains in the picture ('White Mountain'). The Angel behind the couple ('Vision Of Angels'), The scene is in 'Stagnation' & the time of day is 'Dusk.' 'The Knife' in the back of the cover.
Trident Studios were kicking out execellent, well-sounding, high quality albums.

Trespass is certainly an overlooked album in the history of Genesis. Recorded in 1970, and just after recording it, founding guitarist Anthony Phillips left the band and drummer John Mayhew were replaced with Steve Hackett and Phil Collins respectively. The production is pretty good considering the technology of it's day and being the band first real studio album.
Trespass is a album that is leaps and bounds better than their first album From Genesis To Revelation. On Trespass they have set a superb foundation for what would follow in the next several years. The standout songs are Visions Of Angels, Stagnation, Dusk, and The Knife.
Classic elements such as Tony Banks sweeping mellotrons and organ, Mike Rutherford's 12 string guitar and Peter Gabriel uniquely inflected singing and accompanying flute would establish the signature sounds for the future of Genesis' music.
There are two versions of this album availible, a remastered edition that is part of Virgin's Records catalogue and a first CD editon on MCA Records in the US and not part of Atlantic's remastered catalogue. Get the new Virgin release.
