  • PETER GABRIEL: PETER GABRIEL 1 CAR: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: IPOD: ART ROCK: Peter Gabriel’s first solo album- self titled- known as Car- due to the album cover. He would release three self-titled albums in total in the first three years of his solo career. I am not a big fan of Genesis- with Gabriel or post- Gabriel but I am a big fan of his solo career. The lead single from this album is my favorite Gabriel song- ‘Solsbury Hill”

  1. A good one to be sure…may end up on my blog tomorrow (not sure, I have a list of topics for most days and sometimes don’t know which are going to be used until that morning depending on how much time I have available) … I think ‘so’ is my favorite album of his followed by #3 but his work was pretty great through and through in 70s and 80s. Also one of the better live shows I’ve seen (that was on the ‘so’ tour)

  2. Haven’t listened to this album in ages. I agree, “Solsbury Hill” is the highlight on this one. I also like “Humdrum”. Both are on the excellent “Play Live” from 1983. I saw Gabriel live once – in Cologne, Germany during his tour in support of the “So” album, which I think remains my favorite.
