The first of Peter Gabriel's solo studio albums to have a proper title 1986's So was a watershed release with its perfect marriage of the artistic and the commercial. The album, produced by Daniel Lanois, features intriguing collaborations with the likes of Laurie Anderson, Kate Bush and Youssou N'Dour and contains some of Peter's most recognizable and popular songs such as "In Your Eyes," "Red Rain," "Sledgehammer" and "Big Time."
"There is always wisdom from hindsight. And because ‘So' was my most successful record, I think that a lot of people, particularly in America, think that it was designed to be that. From the other end of it, you never really know which records are going to do well...You know certain songs have a better chance of getting on the radio when you do them, for sure, but I think part of the reason that ‘So' works so well was that the band was really firing off each other and we had a great sound and production team. It was compact in the process and the way it was put together." - Peter Gabriel
