Classic Albums Realised in LEGO (MELT - Peter Gabriel)



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


Original can be seen here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Gabriel_(III)


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.
