2 stars As a fan of early GENESIS, I also used to enjoy solo works of Peter Gabriel. He was capable of producing very interesting, sometimes avant-garde, sometimes artistically relevant pop/rock albums. But his sophomore effort is not one of my favorites. Excellent "White Shadow" and Fripp-penned "Exposure" aside, the tracks are somewhere in between New Wave and semi-developed art pop rock songs, with some really stupid tracks like "DIY" or "In the Air". And his voice is very muted and probably his worst ever! Gabriel was obviously searching for his proper solo expression, which would surface finally with two masterpieces "3" and "4". This one is really only for devoted fans of his solo career.
