Peter Gabriel – Lay Your Hands On Me

Post-Genesis, and pre-Sledgehammer; this track comes from his 4th album released in 1982, titled ‘Peter Gabriel’ ( as were the previous 3), but also known s ‘Security’. There are hints of what was to come, but this album covers a lot of ground; from the cold, Electro-Funk of ‘The Family & The Fishing Night’, through the energised Pop of ‘Shock The Monkey’ and the glittering chant fest of ‘San Jacinto’, onto tracks such as this one. Tribal drumming and oh so 80’s vocal chants nestle alongside sections that you will recognise from his later material; where it can be argued that his work became a parody of what he did on albums like this. Have a listen, see what you think.
