Peter Gabriels Black Swan!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (Audio CD)
I have never heard this album till now. Not many people even talk about the Gabriel day's of Genesis. I have allways liked his voice & his solo songs but i wanted to know about this album because i heard things like this is his best genesis album. So i listened to a few songs on youtube then went ahead and bought it. Now that i have it all i can say is that this album is Brilliant & Amazing! I wish i bought it years ago. And this remastered album sounds so great on a big powerful stereo system. If you know the Black Swan Movie you know the Drama & Amazing performance she pulled off in the movie. Well this is how i feel about Peter Gabriels performance on this album with the same ending. In the Movie her death at the end is Peter Gabriels last note & him exiting from the band. Just Brilliant! From the moment of the opening title track i'm more then halfway sucked in but when Fly on a Windshield starts & Peter say's " And I'm hovering like a fly, waiting for the windshield on the freeway " I'm in all the way through the move into Broadway Melody of 1974. You can say this is Peter Gabriels Swan Song All You Want! But For Me It's A Step Beyond & More Beautiful To Call It His BLACK SWAN!
