3 stars Percussive melodics and very condensed songwriting. The direction Gabriel takes on this album is clearly developed and this is one of his more coherent albums, not all is actually beautifull, but also the not so good songs have a place on this album, without detracting from the musical experience. at times the pop-focus becomes a bit too far upfront, but overall the music is highly enjoyable, and I love listening to this.

Highlights are the Xylophone melodics of No Self Control, with great vocals from gabriel, the slow builder but very energetic Family Snapshot, and of course the fabulous Biko, with it's intense percussive final.

A great improvement compared to his previous album, and one of the more enjoyable albums Gabriel created. Worth a spin, maybe you will like it.
