I must agree with jafant. As an early Genesis fan I have the remastered versions of everything from "And Then There Were Three" back. My remastered versions are older so I can't compare to the new releases. I felt they sounded a bit compressed and over emphasized in the high end although probably not as bad as you describe. I researched various forums and noted the recommended older versions of each album. I was very fortunate to run across one seller who had the entire collection so I bought them all. These sound much closer to the vinyl that I used to have. I will tell you that while the "Trespass" CD sounds better than the remaster, one poster on the forum emphasized that there is no "good sounding" CD version of this album and I agree. Bottom line, you should find the original versions much more to your liking than any of the remasters in my opinion.
I have those you refer remastered version on sacd, and even Genesis is one of my favorite band, is hard to recognize those sacd are the hardest to listen. The main reason I still hear them from time to time, it is because phil collins voice sound soo real! is like being with him in fornt of me, but the rest of instruments are very loud and compressed.
