It's nearly impossible to get an overview about stuff he has written and recorded. We try to bring some light into the dark with this series of Recording Compendiums.

The fourth album also took him two years to finish. With the growing confidence within his own style, Peters reputation also increased as well as his approach to work with different people. In addition, Peter developed an interest for world music, which also had an enormeous effect on his output.

Not only the album So became his most successful album to date, there are also an awful lot of remixes and edits of the stuff from that period. That's why part 5 is the most extensive part of the compendium ... so far.

It was about time: FInally, Peter Gabriel released his next studio album after So - the album US. During the following years, he also released a live album, two CD-ROMs and he got involved again in various projects.

After Peter Gabriel had finished his Secret World Tour, it took a while until a new album came out. And this was a rather unexpected one.

The new century quickly delivered fruther releases after OVO. After a long time of silence, the output was suddenly impressive, not only in terms of quantity.

The Real World Recording Weeks were legendary: Beside little snippets and outtakes, nothing really saw the light of day - until Peter released an album called Big Blue Ball.

Peter Gabriel's orchestra project turned out to be unexpectedly successful - at least at a level which caused yet another distraction from working on a new album. Meanwhile, Peter was also quite creative elsewhere.
