From Genesis To Revelation (1969)

From Genesis To Revelation (1969)

Genesis members were boarding school teenagers when they recorded their debut LP, 1968’s From Genesis To Revelation, and the lack of experience is apparent throughout these 13 tentative tracks. Producer Jonathan King guided the quintet toward faceless psychedelic-folk, saturating these pseudo-Biblical narratives with syrupy orchestrations and wimpy backing vocal choirs. Still, the album is illuminating in retrospect as a period piece, teasing the band’s blooming musicianship — from Peter Gabriel’s throaty croak to Tony Banks’ Romantic piano flourishes.
