3.5 greatclairvoyant | April 3rd 07

With his 1986 release, So, Peter Gabriel opened up a new frontier of styles to use from his ever-changing sound. From making progressive rock, to a dark emotional world music sound, he would now drift over to some 80s pop influences. But no one should go running from that dreaded term, because Peter Gabriel is able to do it differently. Unlike garbage from artists like Duran Duran and Lionel Ritchie, Gabriel was able to make intelligent pop music. This is clearly shown just by the albums opener, Red Rain. A take on nuclear warfare, this is one of Gabriel's best songs and the highly emotional ending shows that he has lost no emotion over the years. While most common people know of the smash hits (and incredible songs) Sledgehammer and In Your Eyes, there are other songs that should not be overlooked. Mercy Street is one of Peter Gabriel's darkest and most touching songs ever, featuring an incredibly atmospheric keyboard layer and some introspective lyrics. This Is The Picture is another standout track that is nothing like Peter Gabriel has ever done before. Any fans of Peter Gabriel or even 80s music should check out So due to its emotional aspects and stretching the boundaries of pop music even further than before.
