To do[edit]

  • Fairlight CMI
  • 25th Anniversary Edition, New Blood and tour
  • "Sledgehammer" video

  • Some reaction from fans at the time might be appropriate. Speaking as one, I loathed this record when it appeared, and still do. Despite its popularity, I find it inexcusably poppy and characterless, compared with his previous work. In other words, a broader survey of contemporary critical reaction is lacking. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.62.218.233 (talkcontribs)

Changes[edit]

  • The Uncut source still has not been fully cited—it needs the title of the piece, the author (or interviewer) and the date of publication! Quotes should generally not be used in the lead of articles, and so I've incorporated these rather useful ones into the Composition section, where they fit best.
  • There is some discrepancy among using Discogs as a reliable source, but it does include pop rock as a genre. So I've added that.
  • The quotes in the Critical reception aren't formatted correctly and too long, so I've trimmed them. However, they really need to be properly cited to be included. This means they need the title of the piece, the author (or interviewer) and the date of publication.
The dates of publication are already mentioned in the cites, as these are monthly publications. Rodericksilly (talk) 04:04, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
That's fine, but the author/interviewer and the title of the piece are crucial. —JennKR | 12:37, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
  • The 1001 Albums... and Petridis' comment aren't true reviews of the album, they discuss the album in terms of its standing in popular music and Gabriel's discography, and so should be in the legacy section. —JennKR | 21:33, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Impression on other labels[edit]

In Echo & the Bunnymen (album) there's this bit that says "According to Will Sergeant, the band were under pressure from Warner Music chairman Rob Dickins to produce an album that would replicate the success of Peter Gabriel's recent multiplatinum hit album So: "I couldn't believe it when Rob Dickins brought us into his office and played us Peter Gabriel's album: 'I want you to sound like this!'. This makes me think So had a bit of an impression on other record companies to make bands have albums that sound like So (even bands that don't sound at all like Peter Gabriel), or at least in this instance. Quite an impressive bit of influence I think. Could something like this go in the page?--90.214.81.21 (talk) 17:13, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
