5 stars There is very little to add to PG3 other than the fact that Peter Gabriel came of age with this album. Surrounded by sheer class in terms musicians he delivered the genuine epic album. Intruder is menacing and basically violates your psyche from the first note. Phil Colllins adding drumming second to none. No self Control probably the most accessible single on the record. John Giblin on bass, well who can fault such a diverse versatile bassist whose biggest claim to fame IMHO was his contribution on Simple Minds, the Verona tour and Street Fighting years era.Biko hit home when world guilt was truly at it's most aware, thank you PG for reminding the world of how dire oppression was in South Africa at the time. A politician deluxe and Real World began to flourish. For me the album is strong from beginning to end but No Self Control, Intruder and I don't remember are the best of a classic offering. Yes he went on from here with ' Security', ' So' and much more but never would he scale the heights of completeness with PG3.
