4 stars Dark, uplifting, melancholy, pungent, soothing. These adjectives all describe "Up" to a 't'.

It is hard to believe that Peter Gabriel, who has produced handfuls of great records, could produce the best solo work of his career in his 50s, but that is what he did when he wrote "Up."

Music like this is not your typical pop fluff that is going to instantly grab you. This is music that must be listened to numerous times, and before you know it, those dark yet calming melodies will have grabbed a hold of your soul. And there will be no turning back.

My recommendation is to sit in a dark room, put your headphones on, turn it up loud, and let this powerful record take you to places you never knew existed.
