One of the best albums....EVER!!
Jessica West
He's an artist in the truest sense of the word, and also a man who deserves respect not only for his musical productions, but his other accomplishments as well.
Kristin J Currier
The remastered album (both cd & vinyl) sounds great.

1986's "So" was Peter Gabriel's big commercial breakthrough, and it's not difficult to see (or hear) why: "So" has all of the power & passion of Gabriel's previous efforts, but it also has a great warmth to it's songs, as Gabriel's past albums may have sounded a little too dark and serious for the masses of record buyers. "So," however, with it's lighter mood, was welcomed by the public with open arms, and finally catapulted Gabriel out of cult status & into superstardom.Quite simply, every single song on "So" is a masterpiece. Gabriel's singing has never been better, his songwriting here is phenomenal, as is the production, and the marvelous playing of Gabriel and his supreme team of session players, including the reliable Tony Levin on bass and David Rhodes on guitar. Many of these songs are FM radio staples, and have been widely covered by other artists: the thunderous "Red Rain," the smash hit "Sledgehammer" (with Gabriel cutting loose with a big, brassy R&B throwdown), the gorgeous duet "Don't Give Up" (w/ Kate Bush), and the outstanding "In Your Eyes" & "Mercy Street." There's also the great pop-rockers "Big Time" (another big hit), and "That Voice Again," with Gabriel hitting a long high note that is guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. "This Is The Picture" is a terrific, light-groove collaboration with Laurie Anderson, combining singing with spoken word, and the funky guitar of Nile Rodgers. And finally, there's "We Do What Were Told," the song that sounds most like Gabriel's earlier, darker material. It's brief, lyrically simple, but very, very haunting.Read more ›

Where are all the B-Sides and alternate mixes? Couldn't the live stuff be marketed separately? And finally, my biggest problem with this package is a familiar issue with many immersion sets of late, AND I finally have a solution! Here it goes:

It's called "Build Your Own Box". It would be a several step process on the artists' page of selecting the content you want AND on the media that you want it on, not unlike building your own PC at Dell. It's really quite simple; Do you want vinyl or CD? Do you prefer Blu-ray or DVD? The only redeeming quality here is that you are given a 24 bit download code for ALL of the audio in the box.

A lot of work went in to the DNA CD so props for that. Though it would have been nice for some full alternate takes or demos. I can't express my disappointment enough with the exclusion of B-Sides (Curtains, Walk Through The Fire, Across The River, Don't Break This Rhythm, Ga-Ga I Go Swimming) and alternate mixes, especially the special extended mix of In Your Eyes which to my knowledge has never been released on CD, only vinyl. They could have even included Out Out from the Gremlins soundtrack which came out around the same time.

Finally, live stuff is great but had this live stuff been sold separate (and on Blu-ray), it would have freed up more space for studio stuff which, I believe, the really hardcore fans wanted. Half the content here is live. It should have been called "So/Live 25".

As someone who has been a big fan of PG since my youth, I'd really love to hear what others think about this set. Are you as disappointed as I am?

For a long time Peter Gabriel and the idea of a commerical breakthrough seemed polar opposites. With So Gabriel suddenly demonstrated that there was a market (again) for intelligent and well crafted songwriting. Although not necessarily PG's best, SO functions as a snapshot of the artist in top form.This edition of SO differs a bit from the original US release. The songs differ both from the original album, cassette and CD releases with In Your Eyes as the final track. On vinyl the last song was We Do What We're Told which made sense both artistically and musically. The CD release duplicated the line up of the cassette release featuring Gabriel's collaboration with Laurie Anderson This Is The Picture (Excellent Birds)as the final track. Reportedly, the track order here was the way the original album was intended to be released. Due to the limitations of vinyl sonics, Gabriel rearranged the line up to the traditional previously released version. The album's original smooth continuity suffers on the remastered edition. The final track (In Your Eyes) is a classic to be sure but putting the chilling We Do What We're Told in its new position robs that powerful track of much of its power. I certainly appreciate the fact that SO is now as its maker intended but there was really nothing wrong with it to begin with.The sound quality is stunning with considerably more depth, clarity and definition. This is particularly noticable on the album opener Red Rain and the two outstanding ballads of the album Don't Give Up and Mercy Street. The latter which is probably one of PG's greatest ballads has more warmth in the sound than ever heard before. SO stands (along with Melting Face aka Peter Gabriel 3) as PG's most compelling and powerful collection of songs.Read more ›
