“Trespass” by Genesis - album review

TJR says

Drummer John Silver left the band in the late summer of '69, and was replaced by John Mayhew. They were now free of their obligation to producer Jonathan King, and this marked the beginning of Genesis as a full-time concern, Anthony Phillips and Mike Rutherford being confident that they were onto something unique and special with their complex compositions. “Trespass” was the first fruit of their newly focused venture, arriving in October '70. They were: Peter Gabriel (lead vocals, flute, accordion, tambourine, bass drum), Anthony Phillips (acoustic 12-string guitar, lead electric guitar, dulcimer, vocals), Tony Banks (organ, piano, Mellotron, acoustic 12-string guitar, vocals), Mike Rutherford (acoustic 12-string guitar, electric bass guitar, nylon guitar, cello, vocals) and John Mayhew (drums, percussion, vocals). I struggle badly with this style of music, it seems pompous to me and generally deals in pastel shades up until the closing track, “The Knife”, which dares to venture into a deeper shade of purple. Alien.
