This isn't just too sick, it's three sick, maybe even four sick. But seriously, Radiohead, Talking Heads, Arcade Fire...on the same album, gotta love that. Glad there won't be world beat overkill, sounds like this'll be a really classy endeavor. Look forward to it.

Gotta love Peter Gabriel, even though I don't like a lot of the artists he's covering.

not so much even the covers, for me at least. but will they all be orchestral arrangements or just instruments? i def love peter gabriel, but honestly, this sounds like it might sorta kinda suck.

at the very least this sounds very interesting. the selection of acts to cover is very spastic, i wonder how it will all come together? peter is great and i assume he will do justice to these tracks, i for one cannot wait to hear it!

His shows have always been great. Secret World Live DVD is a good example. I think adding and mixing some of this stuff into a new set would make a sweet show.

F*ck off RealxGuy. Gabriel owns you and your mothers basement.

I am also hoping for a tour.

"This is the first album in a series that will find Gabriel and various other musicians covering each others' material"

I wonder who the other artists are in the series? Or am I misinterpreting that? Is Gabriel doing the series?

At first this sounds really really awesome but I have to remind myself that these kind of albums no matter who there by or the covers can seriously be hit or miss. This one has some pretty good potential though.
