    I'm pretty excited about this one. Rolling Stone gave the album a poor to mediocre review, which is just fine with me because I usually disagree with their music critics anyway!

    A friend of mine heard the entire album yesterday and commented that if you liked "Us," you will love "Up." I hope it's true!

    from RollingStone.com

    "Peter Gabriel's Up could be subtitled "Fear and Loathing at Real World Studios." Ten years in the making, the album is full of primal imagery dealing with birth and death, and sometimes it sounds like Gabriel died a thousand deaths putting it together. Somber and self-serious, the songs are punctuated by bursts of disquieting noise ("Darkness") or bathed in eerie technothrob ("Growing Up"). But the inspired moments, such as the celebratory soul groove that momentarily transforms the elegiac "I Grieve," are muted by dirges such as "The Drop." Gabriel tries to pick up the tempo on the theatrical "Barry Williams Show," a seven-minute song about how daytime talk-show hosts are soulless exploiters of human misery. (No way!) Long one of rock's most innovative artists, Gabriel has never sounded more out of touch."

    I agree with the last post. I will probably dig this record just becuase RS gave it a bad review. Who the hell are they anyway?

    I downloaded and burned the whole cd about 2 weeks ago, and I love it. 'Growing Up' is fantastic, as is the first cut on the album. I always liked 'I Grieve', but that songs been around a few years, so I wish he could have put another song on there, considering how long he's been working on this album. Barry Williams Show is ok, it grows on you.

    I scored an advance copy a couple of weeks ago. It's OK, but not an album I'd listen to often...
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    It's fucking godhead is what it is.

    Though not enough clown makeup for today's mainstream methinks.....

    If you pick it up and Darkness freaks you out, forward straight to More Than This.

    Man what I wouldn't give to see Edward work with Pete and his band....

    Again, godhead!!!!
    not another dime from me, fellas...

    I've now had UP in my CD player every minute of the day since I bought it. Willyum, you are right. There is not one single "hit" on this record, but it is pure darkness! I love it! PG went into a whole other place with UP.

    I think another reason that I like it is that it is a giant middle finger to mainstream pop music...Thank God for Peter Gabriel....and Sevendust!

    Forgot to post this YESTERDAY, but he was on Conan last night (the replay of Fridays show)on comedy central. Played Barry Williams Show. The sound was horrible and there just wasn’t enough space for the whole band. His daughter looks fine. They jammed alright! Just to bad I couldn’t hear everything. WTF is up with this new drummer? Where is Manu Katche ?????
