EDITORS’ NOTES

Inspired by the possibilities of digital technology and the audacious rhythms of Brazil and Africa, Peter Gabriel invigorated pop music with 1986’s So. “Sledgehammer” is a James Brown groove reinforced with juicy synths and hard-hitting drum machines. While that song highlights Gabriel’s most soulful singing, his husky voice materializes like a beam of light through the roiling pulses of “Red Rain.” The dueling currents of tension and comfort merge on “In Your Eyes,” a love song so pure in its intentions that its intricate machinery becomes almost invisible.

This is truly art worthy of MoMA induction!

It's fantastic! So is an essential addition to any 80's collection or serious collection of music. Nominated for Album Of The Year in 1987, So is Peter's masterpiece. Every song is excellent and you will feel his emotional voice throughout every song on the album. 'So' can actually change your life for the better (really). It's very inspiring!!! Pure art!
