If someone were to declare So to be the greatest album ever made, I wouldn't object an ounce.

Some of the finest music ever created and gathered onto one album. There isn't a weak track on here, and the story behind "Mercy Street" is just incredible.

Heard this album for the first time in 1986 short after the release. it still stands the
test of time. Definitely his best album. Favourites are: Red Rain, Don't give up and Mercy Street.

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.
