Ex-Genesis frontman records a touching tribute to Brian Pern who died suddenly in a tragic Segway accident.

What a pleasure it was to hear 'Games Without Frontiers' and 'Biko' for the first time in donkey years , definitely reminded me what great songs they both are.

The rest of this album is pretty good also , especially track 1 'Intruder' which IMO is a good as any on the album . Musically there's some interesting stuff such as track loops , xylophones , whistling and Phil Colin's drumming .

If you are a music fan I can't recommend this album more highly .

This is so good! Not as lush or full-sounding as So, but terrifically written. I love it.

Very ambitious album. Personal favorite Peter Gabriel album. I like the fact that Peter Gabriel told the drummer to not use any cymbals

Absolutely brilliant... this is the reason PG left Genesis.. this is the album he intuitively knew he had in him and would not be able to birth while still with Genesis.

Peter Gabriel's first masterpiece. He's finally found his solo voice after two slightly ambitious and uncertain albums. Here though, is the start of the Peter Gabriel sound, these are the kind of songs you associate with him. Great songs here, games without frontiers, family snapshot, and, I don't remember, are all excellent. Closing with the superb, Biko, this is the true start of Gabriel's solo career.

This is (obviously) a massive favorite of mine. I've listened to it regularly since the day I pulled it off the new release rack at my local record store

So is my favorite but this one is so close. I love Peter Gabriel. This album has many exemplary moments why. It's experimentation is mature but still daring. Political, but not staunch. Many great pop moments but they even push the envelope. A true genius and a great album.

Antes de llegar a este disco tuve que oír primero So que se convirtió en uno de mis favoritos, posteriormente me encantó el Peter Gabriel (Car) que sonaba muy parecido al último disco que hizo con Genesis, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, aunque un poco más pop y menos evidentemente progresivo. Mi paso siguiente fue escuchar Peter Gabriel (Melt) que en un principio no me gustó tanto como los otros dos que mencioné, pero de eso tiene ya algunos años y el tiempo, como sabemos, suele cambiar la perspectiva en que comprendemos las cosas. Este año he descubierto la música de Kate Bush más a fondo (ya que antes sólo conocía sus discos The Kick Inside y Hounds Of Love), lo cuál indirectamente influyó a que escuchara de nuevo el tercer álbum de Peter. Esto fue debido a que me enteré de que Kate Bush había colaborado en dicho disco contribuyendo con coros en un par de canciones, así que me tomé el tiempo de escuchar con más atención y de pronto me di cuenta de lo brillante que es "Melt". Ahora que soy mayor y comprendo mejor las letras de las canciones me doy cuenta de su genialidad. Todas las canciones tienen algo de oscuridad alrededor y sonidos cautivantes y tenebrosos, aderezados de un poco de paranoia y locura. Definitivamente se ha convertido en uno de mis discos favoritos de todos los tiempos. Mis canciones favoritas son, por supuesto, las dos en las que colabora Kate Bush: No Self Control y Games Without Frontiers, también me gustan mucho Intruder, I Don't Remember y Biko (esta última me eriza la piel con sus gaitas y sonidos tribales).
