4 stars Now yes, this is how it should be. "So" is really a step forward towards self-titled debut album by Peter Gabriel and is so far my favorite album of the singer - although I'm in the middle of his career.

The sound here and more pop and world music influences than ever before - and even more accessible than their earlier, it is easy to see why the commercial success of "So." But the experimental character of Gabriel is still present here, and this is evident in the last track, "We Do What We're Told (Milgram's 37)," and bonus track, "This Is The Picture (excellent birds)" . Ironically (or not), these are the two weakest tracks on the album.

Rest of the album is nothing less than excellent, although not all tracks are on the same level. My favorite is "Red Rain," "Sledgehammer" (of course, I love this song and your clip!) "Do not Give Up" (even Kate Bush's vocals are a bit annoying) and "Big Time" .

4 stars
