Peter Gabriel – In Your Eyes

My musical tastes have developed away from huge commercial hit albums these days, but back in the day I was enjoying ‘So’ along with most other people. Sledgehammer, Don’t Give Up (with Kate Bush), Big Time, Red Rain – chock full of hit records.

This tune, In Your Eyes, has been way off my radar for many years but I put it on again when I was looking for a reference track for mixing one of my own, and someone recommended it.

I thought I’d just be transported back to my youth (and Say Anything!) but actually I was just blown away by how great this track is. Fantastic song, emotional performances and the production is amazing, loads of power, space, width and depth, it’s a masterpiece. If I could mix a track half as well as this I would go for a congratulatory pint.
