Genesis ‎– From Genesis to Revelation (1969)

From Genesis to Revelation is the 1969 debut album from English quintet Genesis. Recorded in 1968 while the teenage members were still enrolled at Charterhouse boarding school, the album was produced by eccentric pop maestro Jonathan King. Mood-wise, the album ranges from orchestral melodrama (“In the Wilderness”) and lithe romanticism (“One Day”) to haunting suspense (“The Serpent”) and anthemic glory (“In Limbo”, “The Conqueror”).
