5 stars The best way to get the most of this "crossover" gone backwards Peter Gabriel's project, is to testify it without prejudices, as if it is really prog or not, or any other excuse you can think of. So, I'm going to try to recommend it, without any kind of referentials, even about, the author himself. If something has to be told about this trip, is that your are tavelling to the mid-western part of the world (of course if you don't live down there already!) , somehow not only through space, but also in time (this you can choose). If somehow you think that only "serious" central-european music song-writing and concepts, were the only "borrowed" fruits of the Prog-Kingdom, well in 10 seconds, you will be enlightened with the truth and in 3 minutes, if you have the disposition, this music will do the rest. This project, needs no apologies nor justifications, it stands by its own, as such! Because it is flawless, masterful and a perfect retribution to all the "unknown" and anonymous sources, that gave, give and will give fountains of inspiration, not only to the Prog World, but music in general. Another important fact to know about ' Passion",is that there are no lyrics, just hints of them, some voices and choruses here and there , in an electrified and electro/acoustic "mid-western" mostly, environment with added touches of not so 'mid-western" compositions, without faking it, but with lots of respect for that culture's musical canons, adapted to our "western" ears and ways of listening. If you prefer "rawer" less produced mid-western music, this album has a twin sister, which holds all the "sources" that eventually led to this final PG song-written project. (aptly titled Peter Gabriel "Sources" , also highly recommendable.) This record blew, blows and probably will blow my mind. Therefore, yes quiet essential for me, and a masterpiece, if you like this kind of trips, of course. *****5 PA stars.
