Peter Gabriel - Birdy (1985) Retail CD
Prog-Rock/ Art Rock
On Birdy, Peter Gabriel plunges headlong into the experimental moods and ambient textures he'd been toying with for more than a decade. It's a vibrant and absorbing effort. Though still falling back on snippets from his previous work, the compositions here give clear signs of a maturing taste for the non-Western instrumental concepts and tonal resonance that would later explode with 1989's Passion. The quiet pulse and lush production that open the foreboding "At Night" pulls strange splashes of melody into "Floating Dogs." The track then metamorphoses into a series of tribal rhythms and sinewymore…, melting minor-key chords. While the record is a departure, some of the best material here reworks thematic elements from past recordings. The use of "Not One of Us" from Peter Gabriel (third album) makes "Birdy's Flight" a standout, providing a midrecord burst of jolting, propulsive prog-rock before turning back into the surreal and trancelike mist. An engrossing and atmospheric dreamscape. --Matthew Cooke
