Color: Yellow
FAV TRACKS: Here Comes the Flood, Moribund the Burgermeister, Solsbury Hill, Waiting for the Big One, Down the Dolce Vita
LEAST FAV: Humdrum

Peter Gabriel's first solo effort after his departure from Genesis is a rather inconsistent affair, but when the highs do come, they come on strong.

Loved: Modern Love, Slowburn, Here Comes the Flood
Liked: Moribund the Burgermeister, Solsbury Hill, Humdrum, Waiting for the Big One, Down the Dolce Vita
Disliked: Excuse Me
