5 stars It's now 12 years that had been gone as Peter Gabriel released his last studio album "Us". So it was very interestening to wait for "Up". Could the ex-Genesis mastermind set new standards again? Could he introduce the music of the last decade in his sound, but without catching trends? The question on both answers is: yes. The opener "Darkness" is a changing game off beautiful refrain and disharmonic guitars with Portishead-character, and is one of the best songs in prog since years. All songs on this masterpiece move on to think about things, like the wonderful "Sky Blue", the very melancholic "I Grieve", which moves on at the end and makes a positive mind about moving on in life, or the short, just with piano underlined ending track "The Drop". Any tune or note on this album have hand and foot, and there is enough place to breathe for the unbelievable musicianship. But there is only time to wait, how many people will interest themselves for the in truth kind of word progressive music of Peter Gabriel in a more and more faster changing world. Here's nothing really hard; the album doesn't work as background music. But who will dive in in this trip, will be very rewarded. "Up" touches the soul. Which album really can this today?
