4 stars Although I don't enjoy his solo work as muh as his endeavours with Genesis, Peter Gabriel has definatley had some excelent and creative musical adventures sence 1975. Shakinbg the Tree is a collection of some of Gabriel's greatest songs, including "Solsbury Hill", "I Don't Remeber", "Sledgehammer", "San Jacinto", "Shock the Monkey" and "Big Time", among others. The songs are immensely creative and varied. All the songs are played, sung, writen, and mixed wonderfuly. My only strifes are that some of the songs are edits, and, like most Greatest Hits collections, it does not include some personal favorites of mine, such as "This is the Picture", "Intruder", "No Self Control", and suprisingly, "In Your Eyes".

Favorite Songs: "I Don't Remember" "Seldgehammer" "Shock the Monkey"

This is an excellant album. It captures the complexity and differances in Gabriel's music. If you like good music, get it. 4/5
