This remastered version of Peter Gabriel's 'Best of' collection is simply outstanding in its clarity of sound. Older tracks like 'Solsbury Hill' and 'Games Without Frontiers' are so crystal clear in how you hear them, it sounds as though they've only just been recorded yesterday. When you listen to this collection, you'll find that there is much more clarity in the listening quality - particularly at the bass end of tracks.
Its incredible to listen to the classic hits 'Sledgehammer' and 'Shock The Monkey' with the volume cranked up as loud as possible with that extra kick added to the sound thanks to the very latest digital remastering technology right behind them.
An absolute MUST for any Peter Gabriel fan, no matter how big or small.

For those of us who remember Peter Gabriel's solo career all the way back to "Solsbury Hill," this album is an excellent compilation of his work with one glaring exception: "In Your Eyes" is not here, and for those of us who consider this his best song our consolation is that we already own "So" (or the score from "Say Anything"). One of the things I most appreciate about this collection is that the songs are not simply arranged chronologically; there is an attempt to mix and match the songs to form a cohesive album. Certainly you do not want to hear another song after the haunting last track "Biko."

A good retrospective of Gabrile's work , although Rhythm of The Heat is conspicuous by its absence. Also falls in the the typical best of trap by included an "unavailable" track in the excellent title track "Shakin' the Tree". An excellent introduction.

Peter Gabriel has had a varied career using his fame to bring political wrongs to the fore.
I think he has done far more to help the oppressed than any charity, writing songs that raised awareness on every level, skiting with trouble in different countries but winning by force of right.
He is no saint but if you NEED a friend then Peter Gabriel cannot be beaten.
These songs work on so many levels, and quietly SCREAM about oppresion and the flaws of humanity
Essential listening

This is a decent overview of Peter Gabriel's early solo career (1977-1990) although, as is often the case with compilations, one can quibble with several of the selections - for instance, I would have chosen the powerful 'Intruder' from Gabriel 3 rather than 'I Don't Remember' whilst I agree with other reviewers that the original version of 'Here Comes The Flood' is far superior to the version served up here. Generally though, this is a very well-conceived album and it is great to hear the likes of 'Solsbury Hill', the marvellous 'Family Snapshot', 'Red Rain', 'Sledgehammer' and the gorgeous 'Don't Give Up' on 1 disc which offers comfortably more than 60 minutes entertainment. This is a solid introduction to what were arguably Peter Gabriel's 'glory years' and is definitely worth investing in if you haven't heard this material before.

this compilation is a classic must have, but this refer's to the normal audio cd. this sacd is not worth paying extra for, as there is no remixing to 5.1 as one would have thaught.

I purchased this CD 2 days ago as iv had this before on tape and decided id get the CD, Im so glad that I did all the songs I remember and probably you will to, My husband asked me 'why' I wanted this album as he couldnt really remember more to Peter Gabriel then 'Sledgehammer' and early Genesis, As soon as it played he knew 'why' and he remembered all the tracks he had forgotton Peter Gabriel sang. The CD is now in his car as one of the great driving music albums, if you are unsure of buying this album then I can reasure you that it wont be a mistake if you do. There is not a poor track on the album and each track has its own mark of Peter Gabriel, the ballard he sings with Kate Bush can be heard on many a programme as a sign of enccouragement, We all have our favourite classic albums such as Sting with 'fields od gold' well this is Peter Gabriels and its a great addition to any CD collection. Im not saying you will play this everyday, every now and then it will collect a little dust amoungst your collection, but then it will catch your eye and be re-born through your speakers for a few months then it will be allowed to sleap again for awhile like all great classics.

I'm a big PG fan, so I bought this new edition just for the remastering--which was well worth it! They clearly took great care in bringing the best out of all the songs. It's particularly great to hear some of the older material sound so fresh, full and clean. The only thing that disappointed me was that the songs that were slightly cut for the original release (Mercy Street and Zaar) are still cut for this new edition. No big deal. Most people probably wouldn't notice. I probably shouldn't either, but I can't help it. I can't wait for the rest of 'em to come out!
