4 stars A fine album for the adventurous listener. I heard PG say in a radio interview years ago that he did the occasional commercial album so that he would have the money to do this kind of "serious" project (he was referring specifically to "Us" and "Passion" at that time). I was surprised to hear how dominant the electronics are here, at least for the first part of the album. Later, the world music all-star lineup gets in on the act, along with a number of classical musicians. I applaud PG for not resting on his laurels; he is definitely introduciing some new sounds into the mix, much like on "Up". Incidentally, this is essentially an instrumental album.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Ambient is PETER GABRIEL's instrumental soundtrack album Long Walk Home summed up in a word. Don't buy this expecting a repeat of Passion, although there are some sections that do build up to that level of power. It may be that this has to do with the musical stylings of the Aboriginal peoples that GABRIEL is working with here, but I don't know enough about the music of that part of the world to be sure. Rather, this is an album that you might almost put on as a background while reading a book, and it works well that way. Because of the repetitiveness that appears in some parts, I had to subtract a star. However, if you do like more ambient music like later TALK TALK or CHROMA KEY's latest, then you should consider getting this film score to the movie The Rabbit-Proof Fence.

While some of the tracks are more indistinct and rather unstructured (though still flowing quite nicely) and some seem like short snippets or themes more than anything, there were certain songs that definitely stood out to me. "Stealing the Children" is perhaps one of the darkest, most violent-seeming pieces, and very appropriate considering the horrible injustice it's accompanying in the movie: it's very much a mechanical intrusion upon a purer world and one of the most memorable segments. One of the most moving sections is "Running to the Rain", a glorious, sweeping track that truly evokes the vastness of the open desert landscape and sky of the Australian outback. One of the most developed pieces on the album is "Go Away Mr. Evans", which is followed by the excellent "Moodoo's Secret" which makes wonderful use of Aboriginal chanting, and builds into a more "Western"-seeming piece...if that can be truly said of anything on this album.

Certain tracks experiment instrumentally with themes that appear on Up, most notably "Sky Blue" towards the end of the album in songs like "Gracie's Recapture", "Ngankarrparni", and "Cloudless" (some of the best moments on the entire album)...but a snippet of "Signal to Noise" also appears in the beginning of "The Return". The choral parts for the "Sky Blue" theme are movingly sung by the Blind Boys of Alabama, a gospel group from Talladega that's been around for a very long time. I do apologize for not doing as in-depth a review as I ordinarily do, but it's kind of tough to do that for an ambient, instrumental album like this.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars "The Long Walk Home" was another album I got during the PG revival in 2003, the year that the great "Growing Up Live" DVD was released.

"The Long Walk Home" is actually music written for the movie "The Rabbit Proof Fence". As a soundtrack I guess it does what it is supposed to do: support the movie. As an album all by itself it was another small disappointment for me, just like "OVO". The best part of the album comes in the later tracks of the album as we hear some humming which is derived from "Sky Blue". (or maybe it was done the other way around?). All instrumentation is top notch again and this album surely has its moments. Nevertheless I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. If you are looking for a great PG album buy "SO", "US", "UP" or "HIT". Better stay clear of this one, unless you are really a PG die hard fan.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Symphonic Team
2 stars This album of the actual movie soundtrack for the Australian movie Rabbit-proof fence is quite a journey, just like the journey of the indigenous children in the film. The movie is stunning with powerful imagery of the outback as the children are hunted by a tracker and all they want is to be reunited with their mothers. The stolen generation is the theme of the film, how Aboriginal children were ripped away from their families and their cultures only to be turned into whites; appalling historical fact and the music seems to sum up the sadness, the heartbreak and the sheer emotional turmoil of the indigene.

I did not know at the time of seeing the film that Gabriel had scored the music and it is a surprise to hear he is tackling this type of music. Re-listening to this without the stark imagery is a test of endurance however. There are fascinating sections on didgeridoo and a ton of ambient keyboards but overall this is very stark, bleak music and nothing like Gabriel in his usual musical environment; it is not accessible at all. He jumps clear out of the box to produce some very unfriendly and rather electronic music. Percussion echoes are heard to enhance the mood of the children and there are long sustained keyboard pads and haunting sounds. The ethereal nature of the music does not have a rhythm at times, not even a melody; it is absolutely dedicated to the images on screen, but of course we do not see them making it difficult to connect.

At one point there are Aboriginal chants on Nganparnanni, the highlight of the album, and then a familiar tune to those who have seen the movie, continued on Cloudless, the main theme; I remember this scene as it was uplifting when the children ran back to their mother's arms after the long journey. I recommend the movie wholeheartedly but have reservations about this soundtrack. It is chilling, disturbing and at times rather tiresome. Unless you are into hardcore ambient soundtracks steer well clear of this. 2 stars only.

5 stars One of the most powerful soundtracks I've ever heard. This is an amazing, very powerful and emotional film--with an amazing performance from it's first-time lead actress--but the film is made so much stronger by the soundtrack.

5 stars This album stands on its own as a masterpiece; the fact that it is a sound track is incidental. There is so little to compare to. It is enormously rich in unfamiliar other-worldly and frightening sounds; there is so much, sonically, to comprehend. One should first listen to this album without readi ... (read more)
