Trivia

Due to Peter Gabriel's first four albums being self-titled, So is actually, in a way, an anti-title. The reason being Peter Gabriel did not want a title, so he thought of the best looking two letter word. See more »

Great documentary on a superb album

The album took Gabriel from an artist with a select audience to mainstream success.

Great documentary on a superb album. The album is brilliant and deserves its "classic album" tag. Musically perfect with lyrics that are deep and socially aware.

The documentary is well made: researched thoroughly with well-chosen interviewees. Almost every song on the album is covered in detail. Interviews are all relevant and incredibly edifying. Not your usual empty cheerleading interviews but highly interesting and informative.

The only things missing are coverage of Big Time and an interview with Kate Bush.
