Peter Gabriel i/o (2023)
Peter Gabriel released his first new full length album in 21 years. It has immediately jumped on all the “best albums of 2023” lists. From The Telegraph…
"I fear that Gabriel, at 75, has become a lost giant of popular music, a neglected colossus whose status has eroded with his unwillingness to stay in the frontline cut-and-thrust of pop culture. In the 1970s, he was the mercurial master leading Britain's most inventive progressive rock group, Genesis. In the 1980s, he was one of the architects of a rich sound drawing together sources from all over the musical world. After decades out of the spotlight, I wonder will i/o be afforded the attention it deserves? Because this ranks with the very best of Gabriel's work, which means it is very great indeed. Peter Gabriel is a genius. i/o is a masterpiece. That is all ye need know."
