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?
Some are mistakenly considered only the soundtrack of 1988's Martin Scorsese's "The Last Temptation of Christ", but Gabriel himself makes us realize that this is not the case already from the cover of the album, which does not include the classic matching lyrics to the film, only inside the booklet is cited the movie as a subtitle (Music for ...), it is about the project discussed with Scorsese since 1983 and some pictures are shown.
Like the great music of Bernard Herrmann, who can also live without the images of Hitchcock, Welles, Truffaut or Scorsese itself, although they inevitably make them remember, these beautiful music can be heard with great pleasure even without the help of the pictures of the film, which is now rare also seen the crisis of the record market which almost exclusively allows for the theme music. The soundtrack must first be functional to the images and the narrative imaging of the film itself and surely it can be said that the music of Peter Gabriel in Scorsese's movie has been very successful and Gabriel's big bet is here: making those music which can also be used without the film itself, undoubtedly difficult but also largely successful.Read more ›

Some beautiful - and surprising - music from Mister Gabriel on this soundtrack for one of Martin Scorcese's weirder - and weirdly boring - movies. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Dominic Palmer
An interesting piece of work, not up there with his very best music but nonetheless a welcome addition to the collection. Some genuinely moving pieces.Published 18 months ago by bill palmer
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". Read morePublished 18 months ago by Dr J Smalhouse
