Tom’s a big production guy, so Peter Gabriel’s tight instrumentation and arrangements on “So” make it a really pivotal album for him. “Houses of the Holy” isn’t Led Zeppelin’s most-played album, but it’s one of their funkiest. Matt fell in love with its bigness and groove, so it’s a great complement to Peter Gabriel’s pop sensibilities. (And, according to Reddit, it has the second-fewest instances of Robert Plant singing “baby” of all of Led Zeppelin’s albums. Huh!)
