I know people perceive Tape Op as being supportive of an "independent music world", but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy listening to records that take ten years to make and have giant budgets! Our hero, Tchad Blake, mixed this new record (you can tell it's him), Richard Chappell was the engineer that really saw it through, and Tony Cousins at Metropolis was the mastering engineer who actually preserved some dynamics. It's dark and personal - and sonically adventurous for a 52 year-old man!. (www.petergabriel.com)
