Thematically, Gabriel tackles obsessive and voyeuristic behavior ("No Self Control", "Intruder"), as well as political torture and assassination ("I Don't Remember", "Family Snapshot"). The two best known songs here are of course, "Biko", a touching memorial to South African human rights activist Stephen Biko, and "Games Without Frontiers". Musically this is a very well realized album, with contributions from Jam/Style Council leader Paul Weller, King Crinsom godhead Robert Fripp and backing vocals by Kate Bush as well as drums by aforementioned former Genesis bandmate Phil Collins.
The importance of this album is vast. It has influenced many an artist and the way that technology can be used to make good music. Arguably the best Gabriel album ever.
5 out of 5.
