Rated PG is a clever title for a compilation of songs Peter Gabriel gave to films over the course of his career. Gabriel has been intimately involved with the world of cinema since the start of his career -- during the waning days of Genesis, he collaborated with Exorcist director William Friedkin on a film that never left the development stage -- and provided scores for Birdy, The Last Temptation of Christ, and Rabbit-Proof Fence, but Rated PG focuses on the stray songs he contributed to movies between the years of 1984 and 2017. As this is a comp designed with Record Store Day in mind, it consists of ten songs running at a tight 50 minutes. This means there are several songs left stranded on soundtracks -- most egregiously, this doesn't have "Out Out," his paranoid gift to Joe Dante's 1984 monster movie Gremlins -- but what's here emphasizes Gabriel's moodiness, his bent for collaboration, and his passion for non-Western music. There are exceptions to the rule, usually arriving through his contributions to blockbusters -- there is the buoyant "Down to Earth" from WALL-E and "That'll Do," a Randy Newman composition written for Babe: Pig in the City also featuring Paddy Maloney on vocals -- but most of Rated PG simmers at a low-key atmospheric setting before "In Your Eyes," the 1986 single that was made into a romantic standard via its inclusion in Cameron Crowe's 1989 comedy drama Say Anything, brings it to a rousing conclusion. "In Your Eyes" isn't quite tonally of piece with the rest of Rated PG but as it's one of Gabriel's most famous songs, it belongs here and helps put into perspective how so much of Gabriel's film work leans toward the artier side of the spectrum.

Prog Rock in 10 Albums

Influence is a shapeless thing, moving and rearranging based on sounds from the past and how they align with sounds from the present. In the case of progressive rock, a genre relocated from the pop charts to sheet music stands and art rock-favored stereos over the past four decades, influence has shifted in a similar way—later records that expanded the lexicon have lapped previous records with the incorporation of new styles, cultures and their corresponding sounds. Prog may not be burning up the rock charts, but you can see the everlasting influence of the genre in bands ranging from Tool to Kanye West and beyond. With that said, here are ten crucial progressive rock releases for 2021 and beyond.

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.

The Talking Heads Revolution

Forty years after its release, David Byrne and his band’s album “Remain in Light” has held on to all of its mad and funky allure. The album’s merging of intellectual post-punk with cosmopolitan dance music influenced groups such as LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend and Arcade Fire. On this fourth album produced by Brian Eno, the Talking Heads revolutionized their sound, but also that of rock itself.
