    In the end, the artists generally do masterful jobs exposing the power of Gabriel’s songwriting--their interpretations are all thoughtful and respectful. Covers albums are rarely essential--and this one isn’t perfect--but And I’ll Scratch Yours was certainly worth the wait.

    Even though its origins are a bit unique, And I’ll Scratch Yours is still your garden-variety tribute album, subject to all of the perks and limitations that such projects tend to contain.

    [Peter Gabriel's] chosen artists respond with excellent covers of Gabriel classics.

    Radiohead refused to take part, but everyone else has embraced the idea, albeit with predictably mixed results. [Nov 2013, p.107]

    This record completes the project, but feels less like a whole listening experience and more of a thought experiment into tribute, ownership, and what it means to love a song enough to recontextualize it on your own terms.

    There are too many shifts in mood here from track to track--but it is without question a worthwhile record, as its best moments are strong, substantive reinterpretations that illustrate just how good a songwriter Peter Gabriel is.

    All in all, it’s hard to see this appealing to anyone other Gabriel completists.

    Os trabalhos, todos, foram muito bem produzidos e encaixados. Não dá para negar que senti falta de "Sledgehammer" e de David Bowie eOs trabalhos, todos, foram muito bem produzidos e encaixados. Não dá para negar que senti falta de "Sledgehammer" e de David Bowie e Radiohead, uma vez que se trata de uma continuação de Scratch my back (2010), e que todos os artistas participantes do tributo foram cantores que receberam versão de suas músicas na voz de Peter Gabriel, que na ocasião interpretou "Heroes" e "Street Spirit (Fade Out)" . Ficou um vazio. Mas o que foi entregue é suficientemente convincente e interessante. Para os ouvintes veteranos, esse não é o tributo definitivo. Mas para novos ouvintes, existem opções bastante atraentes para conhecer os trabalhos de Peter Gabriel. Recomendo fortemente que todos ouçam essa homenagem. Expand
