3 stars I`m not always in the mood to hear this album and others by Peter Gabriel, but I recognize that he is a good musician, always experimenting with new music influences. This album has a lot of influence from African rhythms, and in this album Gabriel made the African drums the focus of this album. This album, as the three before it, is also called "Peter Gabriel" in the U.K. and in other parts of the world, but the U.S. record label called it "Security", and in my country, the album was relased as "Peter Gabriel" in the cover but in the label it says "Peter Gabriel 4". My favourite songs from this album are in the Side Two of the L.P. : "Shock the Monkey","Lay your hands on me", "Wallflower" and "Kiss of life". The other songs are in better versions in "Plays Live" (also "Shock the Monkey" is better in this live album). This 4th album by Gabriel really moves the "primitive" factors of the listener`s mind.And sometimes is disturbing.I really imagine a "primitive tribe dancing around the fire" in some places of this album.
