Peter Gabriel-fans do not need any reviews by any critics. I welcome positive critics, but those who want to play the cool-man by dissing Gabriel can - let me say it friendly - move on. If you don`t understand what good music really is avoid writing your negative crap.
"Street Spirit" is my FAVOURITE track on "SmB" - it is that track giving you the most space for imagination, the real magic of "Street Spirit" is kept secret and gets revealed after a while. If you give this track a chance by sitting back and listening to it, you will get the full joy out of it.

I've listened to Street Spirit a load of times now and it is still a stinker to my ears. It is still a great album though.
I'm not sure why you think only positive criticism should be allowed. It would get very dull very quickly if every album review in every magazine and website was written by fans of the artist.
I for one welcome negative comments as long as they are written well and not just an obvious hatchet job.

After all. . .music is an art. . .it's all in how one may interpret the piece of art.
Critics are people, just like us. Some will dislike this album, some will love it.
After all, it really doesn't matter what the press says. . .in the end it all comes down to personal preference. . .
If you like what you hear, listen, if you don't like what you hear, don't listen.
I still don't have the CD in hand being that it hasn't yet been released in the States. Having heard most tracks via you tube, etc., (couldn't wait any longer). . .not the bonus tracks yet. . .I must say. . .
What I've heard so far is fantastic, wonderful, brilliant. . .I've never doubted the SMB project for a moment. History does tend to repeat itself and in IMHO, mostly everything that Peter Gabriel touches, musically speaking, eventually turns to gold.
If SMB sounds this good via you tube, etc., I can't imagine how GREAT it will sound on a decent stereo system. . .not to mention LIVE AT RADIO CITY!!!

IL agree MAK, each one his own taste. I don't mind if some don't like SMB. The main thing is that i like it myself
