Closest emotional contact from actually being there
4 November 2000 | by kernelpanicSee all my reviews

Being a long time fan of Peter Gabriel (my favourite album in 4th grade was Lamb Lies Down on Broadway when he was in Genesis), I found this a wonderful perspective of Gabriels current works. As anyone who knows Gabriel's past, his music is not always just for aural enjoyment, but for emotional qualities. This movie captures Gabriel in one of his quintessential performances. Right before apartheid was abolished and the world was still in an uncertain turmoil. His musical journey through his older music before commercial success to his "breakthrough" album Security and his mid 80's success with "So" passes the energy through the screen to the viewer. My only complaint is the lack of footage of his drummer Manu Katche. (It's always been one of my favourite things to see with Gabriel in concert is how Katche, with his Off-Beat African themes, compares with Gabriel's previous drummer Phil Collins). During "Lay Your Hands on me" his pre-grunge stage-diving still brings goosebumps to my arms everytime I see this. I highly recommend this video to anyone who is interested in "World-Beat" music, well actually to ANYONE who is interested in music in general. You may not enjoy him as much as I do, but if you are not moved in anyway by "In Your Eyes" with the addition of Youssou N'Dour, you must be too young to remember a quintessential John Cusack scene in "Say Anything".
