Following the extraordinary album "Peter Gabriel, Volume 3" must have been a rather daunting process. Especially with the hindsight that most people consider that certain album to be the best that Peter Gabriel has released. Or perhaps, it would have been rather daunting if we were commenting on the works of a lesser artist. With his fourth solo album Peter Gabriel simply steams ahead with his welcoming risk taking to craft an album that is undeniably one of his best.
This album is the first in which Peter Gabriel brings the world rhythms and instruments into the forefront. This is clearly demonstrated with the powerful driving beat of the drums in the opening track, "The Rhythm of The Heat". To say that this rhythm has my soul would truly be an understatement. This continues with the following song, "San Jacinto". It is the wonderful blend of the simple lyrics, warm but dark vocals and the powerful driving beat of the songs that make this album truly wonderful. All of which are clearly demonstrated in the two opening tracks.
The feeling of the album is lifted somewhat with the song "I have The Touch". A song that simply describes the basic emotion that is the yearning for human contact. The dark, scary sound in which first started this album and covered the entire previous album ("Peter Gabriel, Volume 3") returns with the song "The Family and The Fishing Net". A delicious song that describes a wedding in a somewhat sinister tone: "a warm flesh cake" is a fantastic way in which to describe a wedding cake. We have all experienced the disgustingly warm wedding cake, in which the icing does indeed feel like flesh. As Peter Gabriel's description of the wedding cake makes you want to vomit, so does the actual wedding cake. Unlimited vividness in his use of words.

This was the last of Peter Gabriel's self-titled albums and I consider the climax of the first stage of his career before a change in direction brought us a whole new Peter Gabriel style. This is a late at night/early hours of the morning album. There's not a single weak track on here and every track plays with a different emotion than the last and tells a different story.

Rhythm of the Heat is, perhaps, the finest opening track of Peter Gabriels career. The eery mystical opening flows brilliantly into a frightening climactic ending with layers of tribal drumming increasing in volume, speed and power until it reaches its' terrifying crescendo... then stops. The silence does not last long for the spine-tingling ringing of San Jacinto has begun already. This song is, in my humble opinion, the finest on this album and one of the finest Mr Gabriel ever wrote. It tells the story of a tribal initiation in which a man is guided to the top of a mountain and bitten by a poisonous snake. Though the music rarely "takes off" in that it stays fairly consistent throughout, it has an almost spiritual and incredibly powerful feel to it that fantastically supports Mr Gabriels soaring vocals that perfectly portray a feeling of desperation and fear with a chilling, almost a cappella end to the song.

I have the touch changes the tone slightly. The music is more upbeat and a heavy drum beat (drum machine I think) guides the songs unfalteringly on. Mr Gabriels lyrics shine on this track and his manipulation of words and syllables is impressive.

The Family and the Fishing Net is a prog classic. It is apparantly about a wedding though it doesn't sound like any wedding I've been to.

This is an album which it took a few listens to get into, but, as is usually the case with PG, the journey is always worth it in the end.
I got this when it was originally released, and immediately latched onto the last track 'Kiss of Life'. As time passed, I got to know all the songs, and discovered the secrets contained therein.
The album opens with Rhythm of the Heat - a song about a tribe reacting to the intrusion of outsiders. Ends with a thunderous drum performance by the Ekome Dance company.
Album then moves into San Jacinto - complex 7 beat timing which lulls you into a false sense of security before moving into the loud and emotion charged ending.
'I have the touch' concerns a disfunctional individual who needs physical contact.
'The family and the fishing net' is probably the darkest track on the album, and concerns the ritual of the tribal wedding. This is possibly the track you will warm to least at the first listen, but this is now my favourite on the album, so stick with it.
'Shock the Monkey' concerns animal vivisection, with PG courting controversy as ever by bringing things like this to public attention. One of the most memorable experiences of seeing him live was him playing this track.
'Lay your hands on me' contrasts whispered lyrics with shattering drum playing to marked effect.
'Wallflower' concerns someone who is clearly being held and questioned - you don't quite know what for, but there is a sense of optimism about their situation, despite the fact that "They don't see your path to freedom".
The album ends with the fast-paced 'Kiss of Life' featuring superb drumming and percussion throughout.
This album is without fault - buy without reservation.
