Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 6% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.6/100, a mean average of 76.4/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.1.

A big step in the right direction for what would soon become one of progressive rock's defining groups. Although a little uneven in spots, you can tell that Genesis plays with a lot more confidence than on their debut, and it shows on standout tracks like White Mountain and especially The Knife, one of the best songs that Genesis ever made. It also helps wonders that Genesis' production value skyrocketed between From Genesis to Revelation and Trespass. This is truly where the legend of prog Genesis began. The two aforementioned tracks are essential listening. Everything else here is recommended.

I am so glad to see others acknowledging this album as a criminally underrated classic. It's in a weird place of history for the band, and served as a transition into what they would be known for, and people seemed to write it off because they assume it was just the band testing the waters of progressive rock. That's not true at all, this is a great progressive folk/rock album in it's own right, with a wistful and beautiful caressing feel to all of the songs, with the exception of The Knife, which is the bands first real banger and is still one of their best songs ever. Anthony Phillips really proved himself here as a guitarist, and I think the band still could have achieved most of their success if he never left. This is not a diss to the great Steve Hackett in any way, just saying Anthony was incredible as well. Please listen to this album fellow skeptical Genesis fans, it's still better than the Phil Collins era albums, and it's just as good as Nursery Cryme at the very least IMO.

Yes, that's correct Streakynuno. Number one falls within the top 10. My chart whole chart is definitive (though it periodically changes), by the way.

While this is a pre-Hackett precursor to the great Genesis that was to come, it is still an outstanding album in its own right and an excellent representative of the classic prog era. It deserves to be rated higher than it is, both overall as well as relative to some other Genesis albums.

Excellent album which should be a bit higher up in this chart than where it is currently sitting. Excellent production and musicianship. 'The Knife' is a true prog journey which twists and weaves like a snake yet it is a track rarely mentioned in prog reviews.

Many others before me have said this but I'll chime in to - underrated!! Very pretty and melodic, folky with a progressive flavour.
