All Music Guide - Jason Ankeny
Passion is in actuality Peter Gabriel's soundtrack to the Martin Scorsese film The Last Temptation of Christ, retitled as a result of legal barriers; regardless of its name, however, there's no mistaking the record's stirring power. Like much of Gabriel's solo work, the album is a product of his continuing fascination with world music, which he employs here to create an exceptionally beautiful and atmospheric tapestry of sound perfectly evocative of the film's resonant spiritual drama; inspired by field recordings collected in areas as diverse as Turkey, Senegal, and Egypt, Passion achieves a cumulative effect clearly Middle Eastern in origin, yet its brilliant fusion of ...

    Music of the East, Gabriel Style

    This is probably some of the strangest music by a major artist. Peter Gabriel was two years beyond his smash hit album So when he recorded this soundtrack to a long forgotten movie. He wove electronics and eastern sounds into an eerie tapestry. You have a sense of being in an ancient, dry, and dusty place. I have owned Passion on LP and then on CD since it was released and consider it Gabriel's most challenging, although not his most accessible, work.
