4 stars 4.25: the third album by Peter Gabriel and their most acclaimed in the community. This album includes the collaboration of Phill Collins in the drums The distribution for this album in the United States had a lot of problem, mainly because Atlantic Record didn't consider it the it would be a commercial success, arguing that it has too many experimentation and some African music influences. Other curious thing is that there is other version of the album with German vocals and some minor modifications in the music. Musically it has a lot of experimentation with different rhythms, but if I have to classify it, I will call it pop Progressive. Lyrically, it has not a main concept is a collection of songs with interesting things to say and almost poetics verses, and in the other hand some liberal and politician messages and anti war declarations, but nothing too deep. I considered a excellent addition to any prog collection, although it will be too pop for some tastes.
