4 stars With his third album, Gabriel started to use African drums, and did some experiments which are very good in this album. Some things are weird, of course! Several songs are like the soundtrack of an horror movie, with processed guitars, saxes and synths sound effects, drum kits played without cymbals, paranoid lyrics, social-political songs, etc.My favourite songs from this album are: "Intruder", "Not self-control", "I don`t remember", "Family Snapshot", "Games without frontiers" (the best of all) and "Biko". This is not an album for daily listening, really, but as an experimental album, it has a lot of creativity.
