This is quite simply Peter Gabriel's masterpiece. It encapsulates all that is magical about his music; his love of rhythm, his ear for melody, his love of all musical forms, especially those of Africa. The music is eery and passionate, quiet and immense, bold and beautiful. No home is complete without a copy of this work; I bought it on vinyl in 1989 and then again on CD a few years later. It still moves me when i hear it today like it did 14 years ago.

This piece of work from Peter Gabriel is fine to listen to and to use as a remembrance of the film "The Passion of the Christ". The individual tracks have been crafted with very carefully researched musicality, which we expect from Gabriel, that will either leave you thinking "what is this passage, and how have they made it?" or "what on earth was going on in the film at this point?" For example, during the betrayal of Christ in the Garden, the background theme makes you think of a bubbling cauldron, ready to consume everything, followed by some sort of beastly apparition. Frightful.
There are also sections of great peace and stillness, where we imagine a calm water, or sunset stretching out before us, ending with a simple blue and red line conveying a complex abstract landscape of music- perhaps like Christ's own mind, before the storm in the cup. Not at all easy to listen to. But what do you expect?

So unexpected from a rock artist. Gabriel has surpassed himself. The music carries a theme throughout the album, yet each track has its own individuality, even though they often run into the next one without a break. Such a smooth understated beginning to Track 1, but wow, how it continues! A promise of the fantastic musical experience to follow. The driving rhythms, the off beat 'vocals', the sudden change of tempo; so easy to imagine the Holy Land and visualise of the story of Christ.

In my opinion this is PG's best album apart from PG4. Gabriel steps back from the commercialism of 'So'.
It is a purely instrumental album, and provides the music for Martin Scorcese's film 'The Last Temptation of Christ.' As with PG4, it combines world music with Western electronic music. The album features the Armenian instrument the duduk, which has been featured on the score of most epic films ever since. eg Gladiator. Come to think of it 'Passion' has been a heavy influence on the scores of nearly all epic films over the last 20 years (most especially John Debney's music for Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of the Christ'). Don't the composers have any ideas of their own?

Distilling Eastern music for European ears. Peter Gabriel is a pioneer in the field of electronic and avant-garde music; here he created a masterpiece which helped to launch both his Realworld label, and became an essential album for many an 'ambient/electronic/world/eclectic' listener.

Sound-checked by both white label and established electronic artists [I can think of the Future Sound Of London offhand], this melds alternate-scale vocals [of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Youssou N'Dour among others] with his beloved [Nord] synths, awesome percussion [listen to the low-pass filters ending 'A Different Drum' without the hairs on the neck standing on end, I dare you] and abstract samples. A similar approach can be found on Damon Albarn's wonderful collection 'Mali Music'.

My personal favourite is the delicate melody of 'Of These, Hope', but this whole album flows as a journey, and easily surpasses any description of "soundtrack". I still haven't seen the film, and I won't; I luckily got to this first, and I don't intend to spoil things.

If you don't enjoy the cinematic intensity, the superb layered arrangements, the cross-cultural references, and the sheer musical talents on offer here, then I would suggest you need to listen once more with the lights down!

Of all the albums in my music collection, I regard Passion as the most important in my musical journey. I don't say this lightly and by this I'm not saying that it's "the best album ever" (I'm of the opinion that such titles are essentially meaningless, just profile-raising devices). Everything has to be regarded within the context of each person's experience, and for me Passion, which I've the great fortune to have known since it was new, has been the single most pivotal album of my life. A masterpiece in itself (I understand that Peter Gabriel considers this to be his finest work), but perhaps more importantly for me it acted as a beautiful doorway through to a world of fantastic music.

Passion is the music that Peter Gabriel composed for Martin Scorsese's film The Last Temptation Of Christ, it is a powerful, coherent body of pieces by itself and watching the film is not a prerequisite to appreciating it (I saw the film in the early 90's, hoping that its effect upon me might be as profound as the soundtrack, but for me this album overshadows the film by a long stretch). Peter Gabriel's vision for this work was very ambitious: epic soundscapes peopled by musicians rarely experienced within the cosy confines of the typical movie soundtrack, and far beyond the scope of the vast majority of popular music.

Here Peter Gabriel played an array of synthesizers and other electronics, including the Fairlight sampler, provided occasional, discreet vocals, a little flute and piano, and percussion.
