3 stars Peter Gabriel continues his descent toward the pop music world, pretty much headed in the same direction as his former group, Genesis. This release has even less prog credentials than his first album. Sure he mixes up the time signatures on D.I.Y., and, to a lesser extent on A Wonderful Day In A One-Way World , and some of his lyrics are not bad, as in Mother Of Violence. At least he hasn't sunk to stealing world music rhythms, or writing songs with sexual innuendos in order to gain popularity.

I'd give this one two and a half stars, higher than any of his subsequent studio pop albums. It's too bad, he was okay in his previous group.

Evolver | 3/5 |
