Peter Gabriel new album – ” A thing of beauty”.

Scratch My Back by Peter Gabriel

 

Peter Gabriel’s album is gathering stunning reviews and show that he is still, very much, an artist to be reckoned with.

We’ll be offering an exclusive 24-bit FLAC version of the album on March 2nd.

BBC Music describe Scratch My Back as a stunningly realised pop covers collection. They say “the pop world has finally caught up with the WOMAD founder’s open-minded approach to music from near and far and, as such, it’s surprising, fitting and pleasing that one of the most essential albums of early 2010 is his.”
The Guardian describe how the lush string arrangements “emphasise his voice’s oft-overlooked soulfulness” and argue that “you’d be hard pushed to posit Scratch My Back as evidence of declining creativity.”
While The Telegraph state that “it’s a thing of beauty.. adding up to a dark, tender and powerful opus.”

    Peter Gabriel’s latest is brooding, majestic, intimate and, as more than one reviewer has said, stunning. The high definition formats now available bring a whole new level of directness and intimacy with this music and “Scratch My Back” makes good use of the space created. There may be one or two clunkers in the collection, but the vast majority of the songs more than outweigh the questionable choices. “Listening Wind”, “My Body is a Cage”, “Mirrorball” and “Heroes” are classics.

    Many thanks to SoS for making this amazing album available here!
