5 stars "Passion" however is an amazing soundtrack. There was a sticky rights issue and they couldn't use the title of the film, so hence "Passion" seemed an appropriate title, as the music is entirely passionate and emotive. The Last Temptation Of Christ was a controversial and provocative film about Jesus. I tried to watch it but stopped early in the film because it was just too bizarre, that's all I remember about the film.

Look at the list of credits on this recording; it looks as though GABRIEL was intent on getting a true middle-eastern atmosphere in place on this album, he succeeded, and extraordinarily so. The percussion is what makes this entire album. Its eerie, eventful, and as attention grabbing as the film it supports. The host of other instruments played a huge role in making all this happen as well, although it's the percussive instruments that make their presence known in a big way throughout this evocative musical transcendence. This is debatably the best work that Peter GABRIEL has ever created. Those of you that are looking for his music with vocals are in for a big disappointment, both albums are entirely instrumental. If you do however appreciate the progressive nature of instrumental world rock music, you are in for a special treat.

Muzikman | 5/5 |
