The album is just called Peter Gabriel but since PG did the same thing twice before it was confusing as hell. The fabulous cover by Hipgnosis, however, gave this great 1980 LP its lasting nickname: Melt.
PG3 is my favorite Gabriel solo album. It merged the somewhat poppier style from his first solo LP with his hardcore prog work with Genesis. And the merger/marriage was a great success artistically. PG’s commercial break through took a bit longer, but this album contains some of his best songs including The Intruder, Not One Of Us, Family Snapshot, and I Don’t Remember.Melt also brought the plight of Steve Biko to international attention. A great LP with great cover art .Jeez, I sound like Tony The Fucking Tiger.
Here’s the cover for the first single from the album, Games Without Frontiers:
