2 stars By far the worst album from Peter Gabriel. Boring, not progressive, with lack of inspiration. Nothing to do with his predecessor Peter Gabriel I (Car), for me one of his best works. Maybe Robert Fripp in the production is one of the reasons. But obviously Peter was really uninspired at this time. The album has a good cover, agressive, but is not coherent with you can find inside. There is some good songs but with a bad sound or mixing. For example DIY and On the air, both too recreated in Plays live sound much much better in this album than in Scratch. The live version of On the air (Plays live album) is one of the strongest moments of Peter Gabriel all time for me. But the original version in PG II is just a mediocre track. Thanks God in his next works Peter found the way again. Only for collectors. 2 STARS.
