Peter Gabriel - Reissues album review
Vinyl revivals for 1986-2002 solo albums.
If in 1986 – peak 80s – you’d suggested that So, Peter Gabriel’s biggest-selling and most MTV-promoted album, would be enjoying a vinyl release in 2016, you’d have been laughed out of town. Yet the resurgence of the most inconvenient medium imaginable continues, with Gabriel, something of a digital pioneer, praising its “warmth and presence”. His three albums as a card-carrying international superstar – released across 16 years – now arrive remastered on heavyweight 180-gram LPs: So is spread across two, Us and Up across three each.
