Some of the songs are a little clunky in transition from studio to live arena- both I Have the Touch & No Self Control have a similar style in building up, though the conclusion of the former with Gabriel singing "I need contact!" is suitably wonderful. Family Snapshot is warmer than the studio take from the third album, pity he didn't play this track on the more recent tours Secret World & Growing Up (both on DVD). Nice to see DIY from the second album (though not including the great take of On the Air seems dumb!), which goes well with the experimental The Family & The Fishing Net and b-side I Go Swimming (which along with Games Without Frontiers is as new wave as Gabriel got).Read more ›
Anyways contrary to the RISIBLE report above this is the definitive PG tour- streamlined shows, only monkey make up and lights- and BRILLIANT songs- long before RHYTHM really took over and guitars were thrown out of the window...........
DIY is a total standout here- and presents a snippet of the second album live- along with ON THE AIR- which we are unlikely to hear LIVE again from the great man.......
I THINK NEARLY ALL THE SONGS ARE PRESENTED DIFFERENTLY HERE- compared to the studio recordings and nearly all of them are better for that- apart from NO SELF CONTROL and possibly BIKO- which are still at least interesting in a completely different style- the former and possibly more emotional- biko
PGs voice is superb throughout and h NOT ONE OF US, I DONT REMEMBER, INTRUDER AND MONKEY- are all superb on here.........
AND Gabriels detached inbetween banter? is brilliantly self detached and ironic- harking back to his gabble ratchet dayze..... 'the title of this- i don't remember', 'THIS SONG IS FOR THOSE WHO KEEP THEMSELVES CLEAN'- i go swimming- etc....
THIS IS AN ASTOUNDING ALBUM AND IS THE ALBUM I fell in love with and grew up with nearly 23 years ago-
secret world is poor in comparison..........
of Hope tour at RFK stadium in '86, just one year after LIVE AID, was one of the most compelling and hypnotic moments in rock'n'roll. There is a forcefulness in every syllable that really draws the listener in such songs as Family Snapshot, Biko, Lay you hands on Me and others. If you weren't there,
PLAYS LIVE allows you to join the festivites.

My first Peter Gabriel album was the double LP version of this album. That 5 star album resulted in me becoming a massive fan of the ex-Genesis front man's solo career. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Mr. Nigel Smith
