  • Which early Peter Gabriel album was your favorite? The untitled one or the untitled one? :-P
  • I too listened to Peter Gabriel in my youth. I still get goosebumps listening to 'Games Without Frontiers' which to this day is one of my all time favorite (s/favorite/favourite/) songs of any artist. I was fortunate enough (although my wife would heartily disagree I'm sure - grin) to catch the 'Games Without Frontiers' video on MTV2 a while back (taped it of course) and whenever I'm in the mood I don't hesitate to pop-the-tape-in :-)
  • That's a tough call. My vote would be for the Biko album or Security. I love those albums and was deeply affected (in different ways) by both. It's easier for me to point out albums and songs I think were less successful. For instance, I never could get into Passion. Sue me. I think "Don't Give Up" is a little lame. I think "Going for the Big One" is hella lame. Maybe Pete was listening to Tom Waits then. Who knows? Although I liked Us, it didn't really break any new ground.

    Of course, what's not to like ab

    • I think Mr. Gabriel has flat out admitted putting songs on an album specifically for radio play in order to sell his "real" songs.* That's why you get songs like "Big Time", etc.

      I think the 'melt' album is his best, personally. Oh, and I listen to Passion if I want to fall asleep.

      *I have absolutely no evidence to support this. I simply recall him saying it in an interview sometime long ago.

  • the story of Ovo [amazon.com]. Jarkko and I saw the show when it was at the Millenium Dome and the music is an interesting departure for Gabriel. The last time I saw him do a show he didn't look well :(
