Background: Released in 1986, So was the fifth solo album by Peter Gabriel, and the first to have a proper title, though it didn’t have much of one.

The album reached #1 on the UK album chart and #2 on the U.S. chart. gave So a 4 1/2 star review:

Peter Gabriel introduced his fifth studio album, So, with “Sledgehammer,” an Otis Redding-inspired soul-pop raver that was easily his catchiest, happiest single to date. Needless to say, it was also his most accessible, and, in that sense it was a good introduction to So, the catchiest, happiest record he ever cut. “Sledgehammer” propelled the record toward blockbuster status, and Gabriel had enough songs with single potential to keep it there. …Even so, those songs are so strong, finding Gabriel in a newfound confidence and accessibility, that it’s hard not to be won over by them, even if So doesn’t develop the unity of its two predecessors.
