Less Celt please...,
By A Customer
This review is from: Volume 3: Further In Time (Audio CD)
A dense production, rather typical of Peter Gabriel. Yes, technically brilliant, yes innovative, but no advance on Vols 1 & 2. And there must be a limit to the Celtic band-wagon. Think The Corrs and River Dance meet Graceland, without Paul Simon's genius, and you get the drift. For me, tin whistles and fiddles do not enhance or even fuse well with African rythmns de novo. Ok, so I'm not a musicologist, but this really only works well in American folk music where these cultures have naturally blended.

Agreed that this is pretty similat to the previous two albums but so what. At least it's not similar to what anyone else is doing. But to say that the Celtic and African styles dont mix is absolute b*****ks.
