4 stars Peter Gabriel is one hell of a musician, fronting Genesis and having a rather successful solo career, the same can be said for Phil Collins except for the musician part. Anyway back to the point, Peter Gabriel's first solo attempt is much more popy then most fans of genesis would have hoped, but regardless is very progressive, and frankly quite kooky in some instances. No matter how weird this album gets it's still one of the best albums peter Gabriel has ever worked on, it has everything from a hit single (Solsbury hill) to epic ("Down the dolce vita" and "Here comes the flood") to plain crazy ("Excuse me") while flowing quite comfortably. This album is great for fans of genesis, while fronted by Gabriel, and especially fans of "The lamb". If this album were lost or stolen it would be worth buying a thousand times. An easy 4.5 stars
