A very solid debut from Gabriel. Better and more consistent work was to come, but there are undeniable moments of greatness here.

"I will show another me."

An ambitious first album from Peter Gabriel. Incorporating rock, folk, and even barbershop music, it's an eclectic piece of work. Moribund the burgermeister, is a great opening track, and, modern love, is also a strong cut, but best songs are the excellent, Salisbury hill, and closing track, here comes the flood. A great start to a wonderful career.

Peter Gabriel have had his own voice even in Genesisi. This is fine debut album, althought little soehow uneven. Of course, Solsbury Hill is earworm but there are lot more songs with great spirit of Peter Gabriel. I recommend this album, 91/100 points from me.

Better than anything he put out with Genesis and just the start of his greatness.

En solo Peter cartonne avec ses premiers albums (en tout cas du point de vue d'un fan absolu de Genesis première période..) . Alors disons que cet album en 1 dans son oeuvre a cause du morceau final "Here comes the flood".

Good debut that set the tone for his next few albums. Solsbury Hill is one of his best songs.

Gabriel immediately establishes a gap from Genesis with this album. Very clever songwriting and a number of strong tracks, including Solsbury Hill - now seen as a trademark great. Humdrum, Flood and Dolce Vita are all better.

Gabriel found his voice immediately upon his first solo album with the aid of robert fripp and tony levin (among others). "solsbury hill", the best track, may-or-may-not be a departing ode to genesis.
