Heart of the Matter
4 stars I just can't think what more can we ask from a live album by a major prog artist such as Mr. Gabriel here, who in addition counts as founding member and iconic voice of one of the truly sacred cows in the golden age of the genre, the band Genesis.

Gathered here we find well-known classics, but also some more obscure (but not less valuable) material. All presented by Peter in great vocal form, played with taste, expertise and no excess by the band, seasoned generously with soul & ethnic touches adding a fantastic ambiance of world-music, and, last but not least, with the best possible sound for a live recording.

As it's not easy to think of live albums as "masterpices", I must resign to four, but in a live ranking, it's a five.

Heart of the Matter | 4/5 |
