Peter Gabriel: Plays Live. Gabriel's studio work leaves me cold, generally. I'm not sure if it's because it sounds too slick or too technical or what, but his live stuff is completely different. I guess the live band just has more "feel" to it. Nowhere is that more clear than when I listened to Plays Live today back to back with the fourth self titled album (aka Security). Tunes like "I Have the Touch" are stilted and rigid in the studio but are funky and really pop on stage. Such is one of the hallmarks of a true artist, I think.
