3 stars One thing should be stated right off the bat. There is absolutely no such thing as a 5 star compilation, bceause there is almost no chance that you will agree with every song on the recording. With that being said, I want to mention that "In Your Eyes", one of Peter's most sentimental and popular songs that just about everybody has heard, is suspiciously absent from this compilation.

Other than that personal gripe I have with the recording, this is truly a fine collection of Peter Gabriel songs. All of the major songs are here, such as "Solsbury Hill", "Sledgehammer", "Shock The Monkey" and "Games Without Frontiers". All of the albums from Peter Gabriel up to Passion are on here, with the most popular albums being represented more heavily, however.

Once again, there is no such thing as a 5 star "best of" collection. This comes very close, but too many hugely popular tracks are missing, and some of his better albums are not represented as evenly. All in all, not too shabby of a collection for beginners, but I would look elsewhere for a complete introduction to the Peter Gabriel sound.
