2 stars Sorry, but IMO the best thing in this album is the cover design: mysterious, weird. This album is not better than his first album, and I think that in 1978 Peter Gabriel was still looking for his "real" style and identity as soloist after leaving GENESIS. Having Robert Fripp as producer didn`t help him, because Fripp`s musical experiments influenced this album. Maybe Gabriel and Fripp shared some musical ideas, but Gabriel`s solo style and identity were still developing, and in his next album he clearly found them. The best songs in this album, IMO, are "On the Air" (the lyrics of this song mention a character called Mozo which was part of a not used idea for a soloist concept album a la "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway") and "D.I.Y". I prefer the live versions of both songs which Gabriel released in his album titled "Plays Live".
