3 stars Peter Gabriel's first solo album was a huge success to me personally. Lyrically, 'Peter Gabriel 1' is another noteworthy accomplishment. This album is a step away (not necessarily forward or backward) from Gabriel's previous sound with Genesis. Gabriel, I think, was being more creative and experimenting a bit more on this. He tried a bluesier tune (waiting for the big one) and barbershop style (excuse me), and a very poppy song (Solsbury Hill). The other tracks are nice (for the most part) and vary to keep it interesting. The album concludes beautifully with one of Gabriel's best songs 'Here Comes the Flood'. There is a piano version as well (not on the album), but I find the instrumental a bit more powerful. Great album overall, good for an introduction to prog, methinks, and definately to the Gabe's solo works.
