Funny, I went back to Gabriel's first few solo albums earlier this summer for the first time in years. I was a big fan as a teen and then drifted away from his stuff, but giving those albums a listen with fresh ears was really entertaining. A unique artist.

I have to say, that's exactly what I think when listening to early P.G.


Especially when I'm listening to III ... oh, just look at these song titles:

No Self Control
I Don't Remember
Family Snapshot
And Through the Wire
Games Without Frontiers
Not One of Us
Lead a Normal Life

Yes, nothing, but NOTHING, says entertainment like twisted, perverse B & E, the Kennedy Assassination and the brutal murder-through-beating of Steven Biko!

Badalatabatabapa! That's En-ter-tain-ment!

Eh, pardon me ... I'm grumpy from another thread on an another website ...

If you're enjoying dark material, you are entertained. It doesn't have to be tap dancing and kittens to be entertaining. I'm not self-flagellating when I put the album on. Jeez.
