Peter Gabriel

by

The great thing about the early solo output from the former Genesis front man is the way that his majestic arrangements rose above the ’80s proto-digital production, and still does 30 years later. His latest album, Scratch My Back, is an interesting covers collaborative project, but it air-balls more than it should; he’ll doubtless do better tonight with his own material than with the Arcade Fire and Magnetic Fields tunes.
