critics' view

Lucid and driven. Peter Gabriel’s third solo album sticks in the mind like the haunted heroes of the best film noirs. With the obsessiveness of The Big Sleep (or, more aptly, Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless, since Gabriel is nothing if not self-conscious about his sources), the new LP’s exhilaration derives from paranoia, yet its theme isn’t fear so much as overwhelming guilt. If rock & roll is capable of comprehending original sin, then Peter Gabriel might be the man for the job.
