R evisited, regurgitated, reaping the rewards of an old bet, whatís the difference to a couple of old carnies like Peter Gabriel and, er, Peter Gabriel. This is product plain and simple, so if you already own his first two records, run in the other direction with your hands over your ears, preferably screaming all the way. It got interesting on Mercury, but the Atlantic albums were works in progress. Progress to 1992 with Us just flooding the markets and who could blame Atlantic for getting that nostalgic pang under their money belt? The thing is, they could have just as easily reissued his first two albums. Instead they decided to revisit them, which is mucking about with history. If youíre afraid to spend the money on two Peter Gabriel discs, oeuvres un et deux wouldnít be whatís for dinner anyway; youíd save the cash for So, the third, Security. So who, other than me, would want this disc? Was there really a market for people out there who bought the first two albums (or were thinking of buying them), and decided that investing the cash in a digitally remastered compilation of the two would be the better investment? (Thatís three questions, for anyone counting, and all No answers.) It really is a shoetree for a snake, this Revisited. Heaven forbid you enjoy it, youíll be on the hook to buy the first two Gabriel records to hear what youíre missing. (And you are missing something.) Itís the very definition of dispensable. In fact, Iíd be hard-pressed to think of a more useless record than Revisited. No alternate versions, no freebies, no nuthin, just a pre-made mixtape from Gabrielís first and second for the clueless consumer. Tsk. You hate to see a snake like this loitering in Gabrielís garden, but thereís no undoing it now.
