Found Link: The Tampa Tribune calls Peter Gabriel's new album "audacious"

It appears that most critics are generally confused by Peter Gabriel's new album of cover songs. I haven't given it a thorough listen yet so I can't quite comment, but the general feeling seems to be that of amazement. The rearrangements of old songs are apparently really bold and adventurous. Curtis Ross of The Tamps Tribune has gone as far to say that this album is even more audacious than The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway. Seems like a bit of an overstatement to me.

If you've heard the album and have a more balanced opinions, please share them in the comments.

Gabriel's latest CD goes beyond a cover album: "'Scratch My Back' may be the most audacious album Peter Gabriel has been involved with.

That's saying something, considering his last album with Genesis was 1974's 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway,' a sprawling prog-rock concept album about a Puerto Rican kid who … well, go listen for yourself."
