A slice of genius,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Peter Gabriel 1: Car (Audio CD)
There was much anticipation around the release of this, mainly among Genesis fans but in the music press generally. The first I heard of it was "Solsbury Hill" on the radio which had us running to the record shop. As another review noted, there is a sense of release on this album, Gabriel can do whatever he wants. The creative genius was unleashed. Some of the experimental stuff is not exactly easy listening and there is a continued desire to stay away from straight 4/4 rhythms. But even if that is not your thing, the quality of some of the songs is simply stunning. That's the composition and the performance. And now years later this CD re-package delivers the lyrics and other details for the collector and to my ears excellent remastering of the originals.
