One of the best, not a single weak track.

From Sandrof1969 02/17/2018 09:36
Enorme il Peter Gabriel solista di metà anni ottanta a confronto di quanto aveva realizzato con i Genesis dieci anni prima. "So" ha un trittico iniziale da infarto: l'intensità di "Red rain", il crescendo, con un incredibile uso della voce, della famosa "Sledgehammer", l'ammaliante "Don't give up", in duetto con Kate Bush. Bastano, per me, queste tre meraviglie per fare di "So" un disco irrinunciabile

So is a wonderful combination of Peter Gabriel's art and pop sensibilities. "In Your eyes" is one of the best love songs ever.

This is great. He outdone what he did with Genesis (and that's a lot to be said). Amazing album. Underrated.

Mixture of good and so-so (ahem). Sledgehammer and Big Time the standout tracks - couple of them are just too laid back for my liking. Good 80's album, but give me Graceland every timeover this one.

I have already commented on this album but one thing I neglected to mention is that the tracklist you see on this page is indeed the one I fell in love with but I highly recommend anyone (no matter their respective opinion on the album) listen to the 25th Anniversary Remaster with In Your Eyes as the closer, the way Gabriel intended to begin with. Not only does it provide a much better closer, but it enriches the previous 2 tracks which are underwhelming as closers on this version.

I love that this record embraced some of the sounds popular at the time (namely, synths and African percussion) but doesn't sound dated. He navigated the quirks of the 80s very well here.

This album is So good (pun intended). In Your Eyes, Sledgehammer, and Red Rain are incredible songs and the rest are great - well, not a huge fan of the closer but it's an okay track.
