5 stars It doesn't come any better than this. Peter Gabriel's haunting "Love Can Heal" is a true masterpiece. 55 years in this business, and he STILL has things to say - and does so in a way that STILL move boundaries.

He played the song live in 2016 on the "Rock Paper Scissors" tour with Sting, and again on the 2023 "i/o" tour, and now a studio recording is finally available.

The song is his reaction to the brutal murder of his friend Jo Cox, MP and mother of two small children, who was killed by an English Fascist - emboldened by the Pro-Brexit discourse of hate.

Only Peter Gabriel could create something so beautiful and uplifting on such an awful background.

I had the pleasure of hearing him play it live in May and that was even more moving than the studio version. Here's to hoping that the "i/o" tour has been professionally recorded so we may see a live release too.

"i/o" reportedly will contain 12 tracks. 9 of them have been released so far, and many of the are excellent; none less than good. This is one is truly essential; I have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars.
