I think the album Scratch My Back was a triumph. I was a little worried about this new effort. But then I saw Peter perform extracts on Jools and I was won around.
As usual with Gabriel's work, repeated playing just makes the thing get better and better. There's a quality here that is rare these days.
Aside from the lengthy atmospheric introduction to Solsbury Hill, which gets old pretty quickly, the whole album is spot on. How someone unfamiliar with his oeuvre would take to this is hard for me to say. But it just oozes quality from start to finish.
Very highly recommended, 10/10, you could buy it here.
