I remember loving the videos to "Sledgehammer" and "Big Time" when they played them occasionally on MTV. This is another collection I got because I'm a casual fan. This naturally has all the "hits" on it with some other tunes that I was unfamiliar with because I was just too young when they came out. I ended up liking some of these more than the ones I knew! The cool thing about Peter Gabriel is his support of world music by which he is influenced. It makes the songs a bit more interesting and unique than the average pop assemblage.

Useless Fact: "The Tower That Ate People" is a new song if I remember correctly and there is some multimedia on the disc too.
