3 stars 4: The debut album of Peter Gabriel, after his departure of genesis with several problems, including a difficult pregnancy of his wife, he decided to began a solo career. So, he began to work with bob ezrin, who assembled a team of musicians that includes Robert Fripp for this new album. His single Solsbury reached top 20 in UK and 68 in Billboards charts. Lyrically, it contains the classic references of Gabriel to the bible, having somethings interesting to hear, but nothing too deep. Vocally, we never going to have complaints about something sung by Peter Gabriel, so as always very good job. Musically, I considered a good album, however very little prog is found here, most of the song are only really good pop/rock songs and others not so good, but acceptable. I am very disappointed, i was expecting to hear something better because of the involvement of some members of King Crimson. Finally, a good pop rock album with little prog, but that is not going to satisfy to more than one.
