PROG REVIEWER
3 stars As for the "Record Day" special releases this 10 track: Rated PG (2019) was Peter Gabrielīs offering.

A compilation of songs written or co-written or only performed but not penned by him (That'll Do written by Randy Newman & The Book of Love written by Stephin Merrit), specifically for some movie projects, except of course the world wide famous - In Your Eyes- which was already published in his So (1986) but previously unreleased as this film version.

The good news is that some of these tracks see the light for the first time beyond their respective soundtracks and all of them can stand without their movie context and they also work together as a kind of best hits album. The not so good news is that not all of them are essential and the bad news is a couple of expendable ones.

To set this compilation in one of the sonic fields he has sown through his career, I could connect it directly to his So/Us years.

What is good is good but as an album it is really not essential.
