4 stars When Peter Gabriel landed the task of scoring The Last Temptation of Christ, he assembled a vast team of musicians from the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and a sprinkling of Europeans and Americans in order to produce a piece of true "world music". Seeing the potential in the material produced for the film, he worked on it further over the subsequent months until he was ready to bring out this classic album. Hovering in realms ranging from the ambient to traditional music to world fusion, in an odd way this album reminds be of Brian Eno and David Byrne's My Life In the Bush of Ghosts - but whereas that particular album focused on driving, pulsing, energetic rhythms, this is a gentler and more contemplative piece.

Regardless of your opinion of the film that spawned it, there's something genuinely moving and unique about this piece - certainly, it stands out amongst Gabriel's solo discography as something quite unlike anything he's done before or since.

Warthur | 4/5 |
