4 stars After the great "SO" there was the somewhat disappointing "US". After "US" Peter Gabriel treats us with "UP"!

Actually after owning "SO" and "US" I really didn't keep track of PG's whereabouts until my brother bought the fantastic live DVD "Growing Up Live" in 2003. This made me think that perhaps the preceding studio album of this awesome DVD could also be of interest. And I could not have been more right about that! What a magnificent album!

I came across this album on some CD/LP open air market in the city where I live in for just 10 bucks or so and decided to buy it instantly. When I came home I put it in my CD-player and for some strange reason it stayed in there for days. This strange reason of course was that "UP" is a very good album. Maybe even just as good as "SO" was some 16 years ago.

If you liked "SO" and "US" you should get "UP" and "Growing UP Live" as well. The only minor negative point, as Gatot already pointed out, is that if you would be familiar with the Live DVD already some tracks on this studio album might sound a bit "cheesy". It's not bad or irritating. The problem is just that PG is such a great live performer that now I actually rather hear most of his tracks live.

This will surely be an excellent addition to any music collection!
