  • Peter Gabriel's third self-titled album pushed the boundaries of recording technology (it was among the first to experiment with gating acoustic drums, an effect Phil Collins used later in his song "In The Air Tonight"). Gabriel's mix of electronic sounds and alienated lyrics created a mood captured in the eerie single "Games Without Frontiers."
  • The song "Biko," which became a Gabriel standard, concerned the death of South African activist Steven Biko during interrogation by police. The song inspired Little Steven to start the Artists Against Apartheid project.

Mojo (Publisher) (6/02, p.126) - "...His masterstroke, unmatched even by SO. Writing from beatbox rhythms, he pulled every element of sound and lyrical impact into the dramas he'd imagined..."
