Classic Albums Realised in LEGO (MELT - Peter Gabriel)

Newer Older

So it wasn't officially called MELT but it is what it became known as due to the cover...

Original can be seen here:

Peter Gabriel (1980) is Peter Gabriel's third eponymous album. It was his first and only release for Mercury Records, and was re-issued in 1983 on Geffen Records. The album was met with wide critical acclaim and contains two of Gabriel's most famous songs, "Games Without Frontiers," which reached the U.S. Top 50, and the UK Top Ten, and the political song "Biko", about the late anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko. The album was remastered, along with most of Gabriel's catalog, in 2002.

This album is often referred to as Melt, on account of the cover photograph. This was part of a session taken by Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis, using a Polaroid SX-70 instant camera, subsequently modified by Thorgerson and Gabriel. Thorgerson does not recall whether the cover image was manipulated by Gabriel, or by himself.

    Great album (showing my age somewhat) - loved the paranoid vibe through it as it matched my teenage mindset.

    Really enjoying these lego recreations your doing - I've loved lego versions of stuff since that inspired lego version of 'spamalot' on the Monty Python & The Holy Grail DVD!

    You are totally inspired by Balakov, or? His work is great - and your recreations are also great - good work Tim!

    My mates and myself always referred this as PG3. Great attempt though.
