Bold, decadent, ambitious and sometimes of questionable taste, there is no better symbol of the Eighties than the rise of the music video. With the launch of MTV in 1981, extraordinary music was suddenly matched with daring film-making in a medium that had budgets to blow and no existing rules. The Music Videos That Shaped The 80’s is a celebration of the ground-breaking music videos of the decade and the explosion of London-based talent that contributed to them.
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 ancient and modern musics ultimately transcends both geography and time. Remarkably dramatic, even visual, it is not only Gabriel's best film work but deserving of serious consideration as his finest music of any kind; equally worthwhile is Passion – Sources, which assembles the original native recordings which served as his creative launching pad.
