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.”
