I downloaded Peter Gabriel's new album scratch my back
about ten days ago from iTunes.
Not many albums move me, but this one moved me a million miles. I've been restraining myself from playing it continuously. The first time in decades I found myself listening to the album in the dark.
This album is different from his other works in the respect that every song is a cover and Peter is only backed by a piano and/or orchestra.http://www.petergabriel.com/
A complementary track is available at his site here: http://petergabriel.com/flume/
Having said that, this album is true to form in the respect that through his music he is expressing a psychological and emotional topology rarely illuminated with radical interpretations of some classic and some less-well-known pop songs.
If you like Peter Gabriel's other works, or if you like orchestral arrangements or if you are into something a little bit different - give it a whirl.
Love to know your thoughts.
