It was and remains a brilliant album.
    Itís astonishingly good. Gabriel has produced some brilliant stuff over the years, but ĎMeltí is the only album of his I still play regularly. The sound is near perfect throughout.

    I have seen him 4 times

    Last time was 2014

    His show opened with two Icelandic women on keyboards and violin

    Very impressive

    They then came back on with the rest of the band and one of them did vocals on don't look back

    Again very good 👍

    Less so with Phil Collins, odd good song

    Peter Gabriel's solo stuff is very good
    I love the Genesis stuff up to and including The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. Not keen on the post PG stuff. I remember buying Duke at around the same time as PG3/Melt and thought it appalling....especially Misunderstanding. Flogged it back to the record shop within days.

    Shock the Monkey is brilliant. Just going back to Womad yes it is still going. Womad 82 was a financial disaster so PG had to get his old Genesis band mates to do a concert a few months later to make up for all the financial losses. Another one of my favourites Mark Hollis and his band Talk Talk were the support act.

    It’s a very intense, raw album. Steve Lillywhite did a great job on it. I prefer it to So

    So was where he hit the mainstream but even so ......lol .....it was a great album

    I liked his use of different cultures in his music

    I personally don't think anything beats him belting out Biko live before he leaves the stage

    People call him and his like snowflakes etc but you have to have passion to write a song like that

    I did my best to avert it, but I'm afraid this thread has now descended into a bunch of granddad-rock nostalgia

    No seriously, I really don't give a shit for what anyone on this thread thinks. Genesis have about as much musical value as steps.

    If they float your boat then great, ain't your life a bowl of cherries, but some of us aspire to something more musically.

    That doesn't address what B.Oddie said though.
