5 stars The fact that this album is currently rated here as 3.54 comes as a shock to me. I am a massive Peter Gabriel fan, and I happen to think that this is his finest album as a solo artist. Firstly, for any Genesis fans, this is Gabriel's only solo album that really reminds you of Peter's time with Genesis. There are several excellent songs to look out for on this album. The first is the infamous "Solsbury Hill" a beautiful acoustic sounding song written about Gabriel's time with Genesis, this is widely regarded as the best song of Gabriel's early solo career. Second is the awe inspiring "Slowburn", which some fans of more timid rock may be put off by, but most will find a cacophony of interesting and brilliant musical choices. Finally is the magnificent "Here Comes The Flood", my favourite track on the album and possibly my favourite Gabriel track all together. Never have I heard a rock song with such contrast, from it's beautiful piano based introduction to the powerful 80's power pop chorus, this song is guaranteed to blow you away. This album really showed the world that Peter Gabriel could stand on his own two feet, and that it was only the beginning of his musical career. 5 stars.
