When "Us" was released in 1992, it immediately became a steady staple in my musical diet. It was the perfect musical acompaniment to a rocky relationship I was wrestling with. The album stayed in heavy rotation for two years, until most of my collection was stolen during a drug addict break-in.

I wasn't aware of this 2002 remaster release until last month, when I was perusing Amazon for those few remaining CDs that I haven't managed to replace yet.

Replete with subtle, complex musical arrangements and intensely humane lyrics, "Us" is Peter Gabriel's best, most complete album. "So" is a close second, but there are a few tracks on "So" that seem like mere filler. Not so on "Us." Every track seems purposefully crafted and included, with the possible exception of "Fourteen Black Paintings" (not a bad song at all, just sounds more like it belongs on a movie soundtrack). I suppose you could also argue that the two mainstream pop-esque songs, "Steam" (which I... Read more
Peter Gabriel's followup to "So" must have been one of the more difficult albums to make-- with huge singles like "In Your Eyes" and "Sledgehammer" on "So", repeat expectations were high. Gabriel, however, has never really been known as one to rest on his laurels, and his sound has evolved over time. This album is no exception. Gabriel regulars David Rhodes (guitar), Tony Levin (bass), and Manu Katche (drums) are present again, along with producer Daniel Lanois and engineer David Bottrill. Additionally, Sinead O'Connor sings on a pair of tracks, and whole bunch of other performers, including Brian Eno, Hassam Ramzy, Shankar, Peter Hammill and John Paul Jones show up.

The album works best when Gabriel spreads his wings and covers new directions. "Blood of Eden", "Steam" and "Kiss That Frog" are a bit too much of the same mold and formula of the last album. Don't get me wrong, they're decent songs, but Gabriel does better more when finding new directions... Read more
Peter Gabriel has had an interesting career moving from prog-rock radical, to pop superstar, to world-beat saviour.

Released in 1992, at a time when grunge was at its peak, "Us" includes the singles "Digging in the Dirt", "Steam", and "Blood of Eden" as well as many more well written songs. No filler here.

Again Gabriel works closely with longtime producer Daniel Lanois who has worked with Bob Dylan, U2, and Sinead O'Conner just to mention a few.
They continue to incorporate World Music or Non-Western musicians, instruments, textures, and rhythms into the music to get the sounds
that they want, and in the process expose the listener to some interesting music.
The end of Gabriel's marriage undoubtedly contributed to the self-consciousness and introspection that permeate the lyrics on this recording.

I've been a Peter Gabriel fan since the early Genesis days and "Us" is one of my favorite Peter Gabriel recordings.
