4 stars Passion, is an Original Soundtrack of The Last Temptetation of Christ, one of the most controversial films, i think its an excellent movie, and this album makes the movie more special, it is an excellent soundtrack.

It is not in the same style of Peter Gabrielīs works, if you are looking for something like Shaking the Tree, Biko, Red Rain , you wont find it here, this is something totally different. Ethnic music, african and middle east oriented style of music, you wont find lyrics here, in some songs, the beautiful Gabrielīs voice making some soft sounds , extraordinay african singers like Youssou NīDour and Baaba Maal, collaborate here obviously with their great voices, there are a lot of guest musicians, the most of them associated with Real World and Peter Gabriel, the ambient , the mood, the landscape and environment are great, all the sequence of the album is perfect, and the music with a mix of lots of instruments such as violins, african percussions, synths, cymbals and all the guitars and bass makes this something reall beautiful.

I think this is one of that albums that you have to listen carefully and with a good humor, maybe it can makes you feel more relax and happy, i do, almost always when i listen to it i enjoy it and i get excited and relaxed at the same time, if you like ethnic music and that kind of african moody, this cold be perfect for you. Talking about progressive rock, this is not completely progressive rock, it is beacuse of its mood changes and the mix of instruments and great passages, maybe you might say it is some ambient art rock electronic album, i dont know, but im sure that it is not truly a progressive album.

But im sure you will enjoy it, because at least for me its a great album, absolutely beautiful in every way, lots of great arrangements and creativity, thats why i fell the need to recommend it to you, maybe the first time you will say "oh, good album", but listen to it several times and it will wrapping you until you love it. Great, 4 stars!! For me 5 stars, but it isnt a masterpiece of progressive rock.
