Biography

The Genesis of the Seventies was a very different group from the Genesis of the Eighties and the Nineties - although not as different as some people would like to think.

Most of those who picked up on Genesis during the Eighties as their succession of hits encircled the globe had only the haziest idea of what had gone before. “In the later years there were people coming to our ... Read more in Amazon's Genesis Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Trespass Genesis Re-mastered CD 19 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
` I Once Remember Echoes of My Youth'

Initially I purchased the Vinyl Re-mastered version box set but gave it up as a bad job due to the Foxtrot and Selling England LPs being extremely poor pressings (surface noise, pops, clicks etc). However, the re-mastered vinyl version of Trespass was excellent in sound quality. Not sure why they did not sell the vinyl versions separately as with the CDs. I have the original 1970 vinyl version, which is now suffering from excessive playing.

I have been listening to this album since the early 70s and still believe these songs are very under-rated. The issue is that collectively the next four studio albums were stronger and live sets contained over this period more classics from these albums (with exception of the Knife). Even for me as a vinyl lover the stereo mixes on this re-mastered CD are excellent. They are crystal clear, fill the speakers with detailed sound and the stereo separation is interesting because it very different to the original vinyl with addition sounds added. Totally the opposite to the very poor quality release of the 1994 Definitive Edition Re-master which unfortunately I have been listening to prior to this release.

To me this album is very easy listening, beautiful melodies and interweaving of acoustic guitars with organ. The vocals are much softer than later albums. Most of these songs the band were playing and developing on the road before recording and I think you can hear this (being at ease) to some degree on the album. There is no other group that sounds like this early Genesis. The band admits during the interviews on the box set version that they took their musical influences at this time from groups such as Fairport Convention and Family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dusk 22 Aug 2006
By L. Hutchinson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Out of the early days of "Genesis", this is the album that has grown on me. I have always liked this album but have found it an effort to warrant it a listen. That is until now. I only recently listened to it again and found it an exceptional album. It may not be in the league of the albums that were to follow this but it is undoubtedly a classic, and the fact that this album was done by a group who had not even reached the age of 20 is staggering!

The album is a relaxing effort, with melodic pastoral moods, with only occasional loud outbursts. The album starts off with "Looking for someone". A song that makes you sit upright and realise that this album is indeed worth listing to, and reaches a wonderful peak with the denouement which is "The Knife". Certainly what one could call a poetic album: the changes of mood are subtle and this is certainly an album that rewards with repeated listening. Simply bathe in the wonderful images that this album conjures up with its soothing vocals, main and backing alike, expressive and detailed lyrics and subtle overtones of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars In The Beginning 19 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having previously released what was quite possibly the worst album ever created, Genesis got a new drummer and starting writing actual music. This result is one of the finest progressive rock albums you will ever here. This album is quite remarkable in that it has all the greatest trademarks of prog rock (extended instrumentals, strange lyrics etc) but does not sound dated. Maybe that's the result of the remaster but I think this album really stands the test of time much better in fact than some of the Phil Collins era pop.

The music on this album is incredible and each song is beautifully crafted and they each tell a story. I just haven't figured out what all those stories are yet. The lyrics are intelligent and poetic and Peter Gabriels voice completely devours them.

The style varies with each song but never falters in its excellence. Looking for Someone and White Mountain open the album with all guns blazing and you are launched into a mystical realm of mind-blowing guitar and keyboard solos. Visions of Angels is a more relaxed and contemplative piece written by Anthony Phillips who left after this album and went on to produce some of the most pretentious drivel I've ever heard. But never mind that. This song is given the Genesis treatment and becomes a masterpiece.

Dusk gives me shivers. It's almost spiritual and Peters voice is so delicate on this track it's almost awkward but not so much that it takes away from the beauty of the song. Stagnation is a very upbeat and fun track which ends with one of the best and most uplifting instrumentals they ever wrote.

The album ends with track The Knife. They used to do this in the encores and Gabriel would dive into the crowd. The energy is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trespass never sounded as good as this 11 April 2009
By J. Alan
Format:Audio CD
I had the LP, also the 'definitive edition' CD

The SACD version here blows them all out of the water.
For such an old recording, the clarity is astounding.
Not perfect, lots of mixing artifacts can be heard now, but that is because a veil has been lifted.
A must-buy for fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comparing four CD versions of Trespass. 4 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Trespass is a brilliant record. If you like early Genesis but never gave this album a try, don't miss the chance.
What is a little confusing is that there are four CD versions of the album - original UK CD, original US CD, Definitive Edition and the latest Remastered/Remixed version. I have listened to all versions (many times) on different equipment, to get a balanced idea (HiFi set up at home, car stereo and mp3 on my way to work). It's a fact the original recording/mix has limitations, so I think this album will never sound perfect. Every version has pros and cons.
The original Nimbus mastered 1985 UK CD is the closest thing to my original UK vinyl copy. There is a fair amount of hiss and it sounds muddy all the way. If you are conservative and think music on CD must sound like the original LP, this is your version. And indeed, many audiophiles consider this version to be the best one. To me, this version, like many original issues on CD is dull and calls for some respectful remastering.
The original US MCA version is my favorite. The sound is less muddy. A little brighter and clearer, but not harsh. The hiss is there but I don't bother, this version feels just "right". Maybe some EQ was used during the US mastering, but a judicious one. An interesting fact is that the MCA original CD sounds similar to my US ABC/Impulse LP. It would be interesting to know what kind of work was done on the american master...
The 1994 "Definitive Edition" is the album on a facelift. There is less tape hiss (heavy noise reduction applied), some equalization, but to me the difference is not huge, on casual listening the UK '85 and the DE '94 versions sound alike.
The 2007 Remix/Remaster is Trespass on "Extreme Makeover".
