"Genesis" is an instrumental track, being the first of four original compositions on the album, written by all four members of the band. It was the only single from the Beginnings album, failing to make any impact. This single featured the band in their first promotional music video.
Allmusic.com wrote "But the opening Genesis will be familiar to anyone who rocked out to the second album's Know Who You Are, proving that the band already knew a great song when they wrote one." Allmusic.com also wrote "The innovative Genesis as the first instrumental. Hearing Genesis alongside early Steppenwolf is a trip."
Allmusic.com spoke of the song in a review for the 2006 Salvo double remaster of the Beginnings album and the following 1970 album Play It Loud. "There is little here that will strike an immediate chord with listeners who know only the hits. Dig deeper, however, and any number of Slade classics are on hand, beginning with Beginnings' opening instrumental, Genesis."

Famous quotes containing the word genesis:
“Nature centres into balls,
And her proud ephemerals,
Fast to surface and outside,
Scan the profile of the sphere;
Knew they what that signified,
A new genesis were here.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“If only he would not pity us so much,
Weaken our fate, relieve us of woe both great
And small, a constant fellow of destiny,
A too, too human god, self-pitys kin
And uncourageous genesis . . .”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
“Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.”
