3 stars 3.5 for sure

With So released in 1986 Peter Gabriel who was already by the time of this album was out on the market, a respected and world known musician, he become a megastar, loved and listened by everybody in that period. The album graced by mega hits of that era Sledgehammer, Red rain or Big times, shows Gabriel in a diffrent light then before, from the artist with a cult solo activity in one big star. I'm not a big fan of his solo career, I mean I like some of his albums, but I don;t embrace totaly his musical aproach, while I prefer this one over album IV for instance. This is more like art rock with great atmosphere thern a progressive rock release, anyway great musicians involved here kate Bush among them and helped by omnipresent Tony Levin on bass, the result is pretty ok, but to mainstream in my opinion, while far from being bad or unenjoyble. I usualy like more complicated prog, where arrangements needs to be discovered with repeted listning, this album is instantly enjoyble, you can sing along in the bathroom on some tunes. So, So 3.5 is the best for this one, a good and fan to listen release, but I prefer him in his teens when he was the master behind the mic in Genesis.
