iTunes Review

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.

Thirty Years Later - Still Great

I owned this CD back in the time it was big, and loved it. Recently I downloaded it here, and it is even better than I remembered. Absolutely no throw-aways, though "This Is The Picture (Excellent Birds)" is more of a poetic chant than a song. Long ago I skipped over some songs and just listended to the hits. That was a mistake.

As the leader of Genesis in the early '70s, Peter Gabriel helped move progressive rock to new levels of theatricality. He was no less ambitious as a solo artist, but he was more subtle in his methods. With his first eponymous solo album in 1977, he began exploring darker, more cerebral territory, incorporating avant-garde, electronic, and worldbeat influences into his music. The record, as well as its two similarly titled successors, established Gabriel as a critically acclaimed cult artist, and...
