Produced by Steve Lillywhite this third album saw Peter change his writing style; now the rhythm came before the melody and the songs were built up on top of the rhythmic sequences. The album delivered a top 5 UK single in Games Without Frontiers and Peter’s first overtly political song in the shape of totemic closer Biko. It also features notable contributions from Kate Bush, Paul Weller, Phil Collins and David Rhodes. Half-Speed Remastered and cut to lacquers at 45RPM, across two heavyweight LPs to deliver maximum dynamic sound range. Vinyl cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, mastered by Tony Cousins at Metropolis and overseen by Peter’s main sound engineer Richard Chappell. These albums really have never sounded so good! They also look amazing with the gatefold sleeves utilising imagery from the initial release, sourced and re-scanned from original artwork. Albums include download cards with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24/96k or 16/44.1k). Each are numbered limited editions - only 10,000 Worldwide.

I have the first U.S. vinyl pressing, and both the original and remastered CD discs. I've listened to this album many, many times and know its sounds intimately. The clarity of this high resolution release is stunning. None of the earlier releases can compare to the SACD remaster, which simply sparkles. The highs are crystalline, the mid-range more detailed and "in-the-room" than I have ever heard, and the bass is solid but not overpowering. And very importantly, there is no hint of the compressed, over-loud audio that is present on the CD remasters. If you can find the Gabriel SACD titles at a halfway reasonable price (hard to do right now, unfortunately), do yourself a favor and grab 'em.
The album is quite eclectic borrowing from new wave, world music, hard rock which was established in previous albums. The atmosphere is to die for, and he takes on multiple persona's to a much greater effect than when he was dressing up in Genesis performances. Again this album is all the proof you need to show that Peter needed to leave Genesis to artistically grow into this. Which benefited Genesis because they became more lucrative under Phil Collins that however doesn't mean they were as artistically inclined as this album.
