Overview

Gathering choice tracks from Peter Gabriel's Real World recording weeks of 1991 and 1992, it focuses less on collaborative efforts than on Arcane. There are hits and misses among the 16 tracks, all of a subjective nature depending on the listener's perspective. The disc plays it safe from a Western perspective -- Van Morrison's joint venture with the Holmes Brothers falls into this category, as does the conventional soul/R&B of Carole Rowley, Simon Emmerson, and Raw Stylus. Peak moments come from Laplander Mari Boine's astounding circular breathing, traditional joik song style, Ashkhabad's soundtrack to some Middle Eastern desert convoy, and the heavily percussive Toto La Momposina y Sus Tambores.
