4 stars In spite of somewhat subdued production and poor sound, which may be attributed to a low-quality vinyl press of Yugoslavian release that I had listened, Gabriel's debut is an excellent work. It is filled with many varied-style songs. If uneven, the album contains many of his best moments in the entire post-GENESIS career. From the opening "Moribund" experimental, via chart-topper "Salisbury Hill", through the symphonic remnants of "Here Comes the Flood", Gabriel made a definitive "post-progressive rock" album, anticipating his later pop avant-garde works and even the world fusion trend of the 1980s. Listening to this music, it is obvious where the most of creative energy of the classic GENESIS albums lied, especially when compared to "And Then There Were Three", which appeared the following year.
