Now I have nearly heard all of PG's albums, I wonder, in which time, after Genesis, he felt best or most himself?
For me the first (car) is a big exclamation-mark!! Very himself!
The next two seem to me a bit more desperate, though he started with Biko the first humanitarian aspect.
Security has again much energy and the wish to go out. And he went out to african rhythms and continued human right defense with Wallflower.
Then came the very successfull SO, with all in it , also funk-elements.
Then US, after his selfreflexion- and somehow matured, also optical a man, while he sometimes looked a bit 'late pubertär' befor.
I don't know exactly,when Passion and Birdy were composed, but there he was very himself,because he could extent himself total, I believe.
In The Drop he is more at home again.Not always good mood.
And with Scratch my Back he stretched again in a completely new direction and he liked it and was very himself in this age.

I wonder if PG would answer that whichever album he happened to be doing at the time was mostly himself? I know he felt PG 1 was not entirely under his control though.
I'd say SMB is where he seems bien dans sa peau (happy in his skin) as the French would have it. But that's just my feeling about it.

Modern Times- Umlaute are possible!
Hey Duddy, I don't know, if I would ask PG this , I just ask it here around.
For PG I would have some other Dr. Jeckill and Mr. Hyde -questions.
As I heard in one video, Ezrin said with SO he jumped around and said "I feel good!", while nobody, who knew him, could imagine that before. So, this kind of thing.
And - I'm very content with my gotten insight. They are only spontaneous, but ... : Go out, then you are more in!

In this way you can not write anything, Duddy!!
Everything is good,is true in this special case, but the many dimensions could also be noticed.
Some people like to differenciate.
Nonsens,of course!, Mami!
