Peter Gabriel

So Classic Album BluRay

Review by Gary Hill

So was clearly the album that broke Peter Gabriel into the mainstream. This documentary looks at the process involved in creating that classic album. It goes into a lot of detail and includes a lot of insider interviews. I’d say this, like most of the releases in this series, is great. I mean, if you are a massive Peter Gabriel fan, you’ll probably wish they had gone into more detail or interviewed more people. Really, though, to please some of those folks, you’d need to make a five hour documentary. I think this does a good job of balancing the idea of getting in-depth and also creating something that flows well and doesn’t get tedious. There are over half an hour of bonus interviews outside the main film, too. I’d say this is a pretty great documentary, all in all.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2012  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.
