Editor's Pick: The Peter Gabriel Box Set

The must-get 25th-anniversary box set of Peter Gabriel's era-defining album So is finally available and features not only unreleased tracks but also a vinyl pressing and early versions of songs like "In Your Eyes."

But the piece de resistance is a making-of doc with behind-the-scenes footage of the stop-motion videos for "Big Time" and "Sledgehammer" (still one of the most played clips in MTV's history), which illuminates Gabriel's massive impact on the past quarter-century of visual culture—not to mention prom playlists. Watch below if only to catch the dancing chickens, twisted Claymation, and animated food sculptures.


Out October 23.
