Peter Gabriell has famously been involved with creative lovely singer/songwriters in the past, such as shown on this video;

Quite a time ago I saw Kate Bush live, she was superb, then later saw Peter Gabriel live at a huge venue and was not so impressed as he was pretty well established by then and pretty full of himself! Eeker

As has been said he hasn't made an album for seven years, so he can't have needed the money and if this release is for artistic motives and not a money earner then I will give it a listen but won't be holding my breath with excitement. Wink

In the meantime, I look forward to seeing young "up and coming" singer/songwriters like DAR WILLIAMS tomorrow and a lass named Regina on 3rd December! Roll Eyes
