Didn't want to start a new thread, since this one (and a few more) already exist!

I have So and love it! I have Us on cassette. Honestly I haven't listened to it too much but I do like the hits like Digging... and Steam. I find him strange, he's either total pop or completely experimental/world music kinda thing. There is no mid way!?

What's his most essential album? Melt?

Does anybody have Big Blue Ball? The sound samples were interesting!

I grew up listening to mainly U2 and Peter Gabriel.. the 4 albums with his same name have a great meaning to me. they are all very tied as they were a part of something bigger..

I strangely called them with the names of the 4 elements
1-Water
2-Air
3-Earth
4-Fire
they seemed to have a lot of refering to Water on the first, for instance, or to Fire on the 4th... just me!

Peter Gabriel is definitely on my list of artists to investigate,

I really know nothing about his stuff, apart from the Kate Bush duet which is played regularly on the Gold FM station here and which I love. And I liked the song that was included on the City of Angels soundtrack... "I Grieve" I think it was called.

So I finally got Up yesterday. I'm not going to say it's crap. Maybe because I didn't have to wait 10 years for it. Was certainly not his best though. And I still love I Grieve so that' s a big plus on its side

You should absolutely, totally and completely Netflix the "Secret World" DVD. You don't even have to know his music to enjoy it.

I love how in the interview in the bonus features for "Secret World" he mentions how he HAD the idea for ZooTv, then he went to a U2 show and saw his idea on stage Kinda cool though to know that no matter what, something like ZooTv would've happened.

Oh and Zoots, I just noticed your questions:

His newest album is "Up" It's semi-decent, but nowhere near his best. Melt's like..his third album? I can't remember, it's:

Peter Gabriel 1 < I think this one's Car
Peter Gabriel 2 < I think this one's Scratch
Peter Gabriel 3 < I believe this one may be Melt
Peter Gabriel 4 < I know this one is also called "Security"
So
Us
Up

As for BBBall, I haven't heard it yet, don't know if I'd be interested in it either, since there's not really a lot of Gabriel on there.

WHY did I read essential as recent

Ugh...anyways, yeah probably Melt, though my personal favorite happens to be Us.
