In the end it comes to a formula that would have been unbearably trite at the beginning of the book: "Peter is who Peter is. Readers should also take seriously the subtitle of the book, The life and music of Peter Gabriel.
Easlea offers us a description of the music Peter Gabriel has made through the decades and weaves the description of his life around this discographical approach. The focus on the music remains strong throughout. The traditional approach of a biography, i. Easlea takes the equally interesting approach to show "how it felt for people".
This makes the presentation necessarily subjective, which is not really something to criticise: It is obviously impossible to describe the life of Peter Gabriel or anybody else for that matter objectively. The very selection of events that are portrayed is subjective; choosing and picking is the author's prerogative.
Whether this goes as passing so strong a judgement on a song as "Gabriel's greatest, most succinct Genesis-era song Your mileage may vary. The weight each of the three periods up to , to , to is given in the book seems a bit unbalanced. The first pages cover basically Gabriel's time in Genesis, roughly a decade. The decade after that is contained in pages, while the 26 years after that have to make do with some pages. It would have been intriguing to hear more about Gabriel's many activities outside the music.
After all, Gabriel is quoted in the book as saying that music takes up only a third of his time these days. But then the book is more about his music and less about other activities, so covering that is perhaps up to a desirable update of Spencer Bright's book.
Unfortunately there are a number of mistakes in the edition of the book: Easlea moves the Chernobyl disaster a year forward, one of the groups that formed in Charterhouse is called "The Anon" in this book and the inevitable press photo of the band from their From Genesis To Revelation time supposedly shows, according to the caption, John Silver. These things have all been corrected in the edition.
What is commendable is the extensive bibliography that also lists numerous websites genesis-news. It is regrettable that this was not added in the edition. Daryl Easlea has written a good-to-read discography with discussions of the songs and biographical notes.
