5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! 1 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a masterpeice of musicianship. Peter Gabriel is always great and with the addition of so many guests on this album, it truly is one of a kind. Robert Fripp's recognisable guitar playing on "I don't remember" is a joy and the wonderful "Biko" shows an indication of the world music Peter Gabriel loves. "Games without Frontiers" is just so much fun, but for my money, it's worth buying for "Family Snapshot" alone. 5 stars, no question.

5.0 out of 5 stars An album that was a hit before its release! 24 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download
When Peter Gabriel played three nights at Hammersmith Odeon in the spring of 1980,he was "touring" this album even though it was yet to be released. The start of the show gave a truly stunning indication of what was to follow, not just on that magical evening but on the album itself. When the lights dimmed the cacophony of noise that was the (as yet unknown)drum introduction to Intruder thundered through the hall. From the back of the auditorium came a handful of men all dressed in black, like thieves of the night, armed with powerful searchlights which they played across the audience. When, after several minutes accompanied by the pounding drum sequence they reached the front of the stalls, they climbed onto the stage located instruments and microphones and a chilling voice rasped out "I know something about opening windows and doors" and thus we were introduced to "Intruder" and "Peter Gabriel 3".

Ok so this is not meant to be a concert review but the beginning of those concerts exemplifies the originality and vitality of everything Gabriel was doing at the time. It is quite rare, I believe, for a whole suite of unreleased songs to be ecstatically received in the way the extracts from "Gabriel 3" were that evening - especially given that, as other reviews have identified, his previous two albums had been highly worthy but not outstanding.

When the album became available a short while after the concerts, I remember being blown away all over again. Progressive rock it wasnt, although it had occasional nods in that direction, but what was it? . For me it was indefinable; crossing styles and genres (hate that word)in a way that may not be out of the ordinary now but was almost unheard of back in the 70s/80s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly Timeless! 1 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
Revisiting this album after many years I am struck how this album and the next one, really caught Peter Gabriel at his most innovative in terms of the technology he was experimenting with and importantly his most accessible music.Often when listening to an album you haven't listened to for many years the experience can be a disappointment, this album does not do this! It still sounds current and fresh today which is why I feel this qualifies it for 5 stars. If you have never heard Peter Gabriel before this is a good place to start and if you, like me, hadn't listened to this album since it was released then I think a revisit is in order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gabriels best 14 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Edgy, innovative, moody. Gabriel was very much influenced by the punk revoloution in the UK, cleverly utilised the up and coming talents of the time (weller XTC Bush) Not forgetting old mucker phil collins brilliant drumming on no self control. Not a duff track on the album each track a joy and very different. It finishes off with the first Gabriel anthem 'Biko' Has not made a better album since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably my FAVOURITE ALBUM OF ALL TIME! 26 Dec 2004
Format:Audio CD
Peter Gabriel 3 is an astonishingly creative, intelligent and emotional collection of songs and atmospheres that has continued to inspire me for over twenty years. It could well be my favourite album of all time, and that includes ALL artists and ALL genres of music. From the dark and sinister opening of "Intruder" to the chant of "Biko" on the last track, every song on this album has substance, power and quality.
Musically, a wide range of styles are embraced with a number of contributions from other musical creative giants such as Paul Weller (punky thrashing guitar on "And Through The Wire"), Kate Bush (distinctive atmospheric backing vocals) and Phil Collins (crashing "gated snare" drum sound that was highly original at the time and an influence on much eighties music afterwards). PG 3 was recorded before Gabriel developed his "world music" sound. It has an incredible range of musical, emotional and lyrical dynamics not present in some of his later, more commercially successful (still excellent), albums.
Lyrically, Gabriel's haunting voice covers a massive range of basic human emotions here, many of them dark. Several tracks on this album can still make me cry even though I know them inside out. Other tracks have me bopping around like an idiot! Absolutely brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars crossing the frontiers 20 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the album that paved the way for Gabriel's super stardom. He finally left his past behind and joined ranks with the avant-garde (Bowie, Eno, King Crimson, Talking Heads), ushering in the age of world music. African rythms were to the fore, the drummers (including Phil Collins) ordered not to play their rides or hi-hats. It is still amazing how Gabriel managed to make his uncompromising issues so creatively and commercially successful, a magic trick seemingly impossible today. Starting with the (at first) tuneless sonic paranoia attack of Intruder, Gabriel tackles all sorts of difficult subjects from racism and alienation on Not one of us and Biko, to amnesia (I can't remember), war (Games without Frontiers - "we piss on the goons in the jungle") and murder, on Family Snapshot, one of his best ever songs in which a lone gunman (L.H. Oswald ?) merges with his victim. The list of collaborators is similarly impressive (Kate Bush, Fripp, Paul Weller, Dave Gregory from XTC, the marvellous Tony Levin and John Giblin on bass etc..)without ever detracting from Gabriel's complete mastery of his new, original art. The 4th album featured a slicker production and another set of great new songs before Gabriel became boring on "So", the first album with a title and a cover on which he did not rip, hide, melt or distort his own face - the phase of experimentation was over, all the worse for the listeners. Volume 3 is the real thing, uncomfortable, intense and weirdly, grippingly beautiful.

Yes it may be very innovative and creative. Doesn't alter the fact it's not very pleasant to listen to though. Where's the melody, harmony? On his first album, that's where.
