hippybear: hincandenza: surely you're comparing Peter Gabriel with Miley Cyrus.
(I know you're not.)
(But you do realize that neither The Polyphonic Spree nor Elbow are big name producers, and that Gabriel self-produced that album, and that the original track has backing vocals by The Blind Boys Of Alabama, bass by Tony Levin, guitar by David Rhodes, and mandolin and keyboards by your beloved Jon Brion? And that Gabriel really doesn't fit into any of the mold that you're complaining about, anyway?
