3 stars The Peter Gabriel album that brought the world.

2 years later after his controversial decision to leave Genesis, Peter Gabriel brings the first of four albums to his name (self-centeredness? I think not), as well as a series of successful albums of his solid career.

I'm really happy with this 'lbum.Until then,my little contact with his solo career took the beautiful song "Down to Earth" that he composed for the film "Wall-e" (and he deserved to have won the Oscar for best instead of the silly song "Jai Ho") and fun "Sledgehammer" (the clip, as good as it was-and taste-which I did not deserve the MTV, but the video for "Land of Confusion").

In its entirety, "PG 1" (or "Car", as you prefer) is a fresh album, where there are already some of the influences of world music and strange elements that appear more strongly in the next few albums.

Now, a fact to be noticed is that while many complain that the output of the Genesis Gabriel led the decline, turning them into a commercial pop band, a few prog elements really here, then excused to say, he chose one way as easily as his former companions.Still, it is the kind of pop-rock that is worth hearing, without prejudice.

3,5 stars.
