4 stars I have seen Peter Gabriel solo many times and every concert was a wonderful visual, musical and emotional experience, this man is so pure and so creative! But I had problems with his studio albums, I enjoyed it far less than the concerts, especially the second and third album. But on this fourth album I enjoy the ethnic and emotional touch. Peter Gabriel had went through an intense psycho-therapeutical process, the result was that he succeeded to sound more direct from his heart and feelings ("Lay your hands on me" tells about the poor emotional bonding with his parents). People from the venomous musical press in the UK blamed Peter Gabriel that he integrated the African sound because of his feeling guilty about 'the way Britannia ruled the waves in the past' but in my opinion this is rubbish! Peter Gabriel is a very curious, inventive and creative personality who discovered that the African sound was ideal to blend with his musical ideas and personal feelings and emotions. This resulted in impressive and very compelling songs like "The rhythm of the heat" and "San Jacinto". And "Shock th emonkey" is a mirror for the whole human race!
