5 stars This is not a prog rock album, however this is a great one - Peter Gabriel shew himself both as a world music fan and an experimentator, interested in high-tech. This clash gave an album which can be listened to without watching the film (for example - I've never watched it, ) and still amazes the listener. I would call it ethno-ambient, but only partially. It has some ambient's features - it is produced using high technique and very relaxing, it doesnn't invade the lisener's mind. However, mos of he compositions are based on a strong, ehnic rhythm. I would say, that Dead Can Dance (they are still not added here, just like Cocteau Twins - shame on the webmasters!) had to listen to "Passion" while making a great record "Spiritchaser". The climate is very similar. But Gabriel's work sounds more modern, though it's much older. One more thing - the novels of Nikis Kazantzakis , when they are filmed, usually get fantastic soundtracks. Remind yourselves "Zorba the Greek!".
