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.

Gabriel's 4th solo foray finds the former Genesis frontman moving into the deeper, somewhat darker territory of 'world music' and, although there are some powerful songs here, this collection struggles to live up to the more immediate qualities of the superb Gabriel 3. However, the African rhythms displayed on 'Rhythm Of The Heat' get things started in a highly effective fashion and 'San Jacinto', which follows it, is classic Gabriel. 'Shock The Monkey' is probably the catchiest track here and the gorgeous ballad 'Wallflower' is, for me, the highlight of an album which certainly grows on this listener with every play.

It seems incredible that this album is now twenty three years old. Overlooked at the time of its release, not least because of the success of his third album (which had the advantage of a big hit single), it still sounds fresh after all these years.
Not as immediately accessible as vol.3 (Gabriel's first four albums where originaly all called Peter Gabriel) it has less of the edgy electronics, but more of a rounded and warm feel.
The opening Rhythm of the Heat brings in the African influences that suffuse the album. It is an effective opener. San Jacinto follows in a similar vein then I Have the Touch (which could have been a hit if they hadn't taken the bizarre decision to edit out the middle eight on the single version) livens the pace before The Family and the Fishing Net delves into frankly sinister waters. Lead single Shock the Monkey opens the second half and works better as an album track than it did as a single. Lay Your Hands on Me is a joyous rhythmic affair. Wallflower should have been a single and is one of Gabriel's finest ballads. The closing Kiss of Life is in some ways out of place on the album, being far popier than the bulk of the album. But it is a great song and deserves inclusion, coming at the end it feels like it was added as an extra.
His third album probably had the better songs, but this one works better as an album.
If you fancy hearing something really different, try the Deutsches Album, which is this record sung in German. Taking the focus away from the lyrics onto the music, it is worthwhile for any PG fan, though obviously the album works best in your own language.

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.
