3 stars This album really is good. I have heard many say that this record will sound dated in 10 years, due to the over-the-top futuristic (for 2002) production. Well, that may be true, but the same goes for nearly every Peter Gabriel record. His productions have always pushed the sonic envelope, usually to great effect, as on the excellent "3" album.

Certainly, there are a few clunkers here, but the only one really worthy of mention is "The Barry Williams Show", which is on the verge of being a cool pop song, but falls into the Atrocious category instead. Mr. Gabriel is always, to me, teetering on the brink of contrived schtick while flirting with true artistic genius.

All in all, this is a worthy album for Peter Gabriel fans, but really not one that I would recommend to the uninitiated.

AN ASIDE: I am certain that this is not the place to do this, but this is a desparate plea for some help with this site. I cannot confirm my forum registration! I have tried dozens of times to have the system send me a confirmation email, and an email never arrives in my inbox! My apologies for writing this here, but I have simply found no other means of communication with anyone connected with Prog Archives. If anyone can help me, please email me at

feel free to delete or edit this review. THANKS!
