Official Site :

@allmusic : Produced by Steve Lillywhite and released in 1980, the album established Gabriel as one of rock’s most ambitious, innovative musicians, as well as one of its most political — Biko, a song about a murdered anti-apartheid activist, became one of the biggest protest anthems of the ’80s.

@last.fm : He created one of the more innovative videos of its time for the song Sledgehammer, with the then-fledgling Aardman Animations studio.

@Discogs : As well as becoming a multi-platinum selling albums artist, he was the founder of the annual Womad music festival, owns one of Britain’s most in-demand recording studios, Real World Studios
