5 stars In the beginning I must say, I do not like the world music. I mean the term. This is often, very often, nothing but an obscure cloud wherein pseudoartists without their own ideas use to hide themselves and play great magicians. But not Peter Gabriel. If something deserves to be named a world one, it is exatly this album. I remember, I was a big fan of Genesis as a student and Gabriel (still I am, I mean a fan not a student). however, I have not listened to this music very very long time, and now, when I am going through my old cassettes and make an order, I am re-discovering a plethora of great stuff. Of course, not everything what I liked I still do, but this album I find an absolute jewel. I know what I like. It is, to tell it in one word, an intelligent music. You can feel the heat of Africa, voices of the jungle, songs of chinese rivers, murmuring of the highest mountains, silence of unknown icelands, a sigh of a girl behind the wall (where I was living at that times too). And all that is performed in a very relaxed, smooth and so-called english way. Although absolutely different, I hear here something of Tresspass. By the way, Peter Gabriel made a great dicision living Genesis. Had he not we would have hardly heard Wind and wuthering, had he not we would have been without this masterpiece of art.
