Oh, Wow

This article makes me happier than happy.

As many of you know, I simply love Peter Gabriel too much. And as someone who's written for a lot of indie magazines, it's quite amazing to me that Magnet is featuring the man.

Let's just say that magazines like Magnet, internally and in print, have never been not too kind toward prog rock, always lumping the excesses of bands like Emerson, Lake and Palmer into the same stories about great acts like Gabriel and Genesis.

With all that said, I agree with most of this. But, to call "Games Without Frontiers" overrated is just plain ignorant. It's one of the smartest, hippest and most surprising pop songs. Take a listen. This tune charted.

Anyway, I must now get back to work and interviewing people.
