Editorial Reviews

Originally released in 1992. Remastered in 2002. In 1992 Peter Gabriel delivered Us, his sequel to So. Featuring ten impressive tracks. "Digging in the Dirt" has an insistent pulse, "Blood of Eden" and "Come Talk to Me" are quite beautiful, "Secret World" is quietly anthemic. An eclectic and deeply personal album remastered to bring out the intended depth and clarity of the original.

Desires, relationships, communication, the struggle of being imperfect humans in an imperfect world...Grace, and what it means to love and live in this world. All of these things echo throughout this collection of songs. "US" is one of my favorite recordings. It has a depth that few others in my collection have ever even come close to matching.
The music varies greatly in sound and style; with all of it working to great effect:
The pulsing rhythms of the percussion on "Love to be Loved" flow as a gentle undercurrent working in combination with very understated keyboards. The way the instrumental music on this song serves as a canvass for Gabriel's whisper-like vocals is pure genius. The song itself is about cutting loose the habitual need for human love. It is a musically gentle yet emotionally searing exposition on the pain caused when a relationship dies.
The "Blood of Eden" contains some of the most beautiful lyrics ever written in English (just my not-so-humble opinion). It speaks of the human habit of constantly starting to love, to seek union, without taking stock of our true selves and our true motives. It speaks of coming to the realization of who one really is with beautiful language: "I caught sight of my reflection, I caught it in the window; I saw the darkness in my heart. I saw the signs of my undoing. They had been there from the start." It speaks of our wanting union. The song begins by focusing on the union of women and men. Upon deeper reflection the song moves on to speak of a deeper need for union than the marital framework provides: "I can hear the distant thunder of a million unheard souls, of a million unheard souls-watch each one reach for creature comfort for the filling of their holes.

1992's "US" is truly a "from the heart" body of music from Peter Gabriel, his most personal album to date. He recorded "US" during a time when his 15-year marriage to his wife Jill had recently broken up, and a following relationship with actress Rosanna Arquette had also dissolved, so Peter certainly had a lot of personal, romantic demons to exorcise from his system, which he did with this album. Gabriel totally wears his heart on his sleeve with these songs, which may have irked some listeners, but not me. "US" is a Peter Gabriel album that's very close to my heart, because I can certainly relate to what he's singing about on it. Like Peter, I love to be loved, too.Gabriel explores many aspects of love & relationships on "US": lack of communication ("Come Talk To Me"), the desire for love in one's life ("Love To Be Loved"), relationships between men & women ("Blood Of Eden"), sexuality ("Steam"), loneliness ("Washing Of The Water"), emotional pain ("Digging In The Dirt"), and seeing someone's inner beauty beyond their physical appearance ("Kiss That Frog"). Gabriel explores these subjects honestly & beautifully, and not without moments of playfulness along the way, too (as the upbeat numbers "Steam" & "Kiss That Frog" clearly show). As always, Gabriel's singing, songwriting, and playing throughout are extraordinary. He also gets great help from the likes of Sinead O'Connor, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, William Orbit, and Gabriel's band regulars Tony Levin on bass, guitarist David Rhodes, violinist Shankar, and drummer Manu Katche, as well as a few holdover players from Gabriel's "Passion" album, like Doudou N'Diaye Rose & Hossam Ramzy.Read more ›

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 always thought was similar to -- but much better than -- "Big Time") and "Kiss That Frog," don't quite harmonize with the overall emotional tenor of "Us," but I won't quibble with greatness. "Come Talk to Me" is a compelling opening and invitation, followed immediately by the beautiful and moving "Love to be Loved" and "Blood of Eden." And you can't find more musical honesty and integrity than showcased in "Washing of the Water" and "Digging in the Dirt."

The remastered version superbly highlights the many acoustic nuances that were so painstakingly crafted by Gabriel. Can't recommend it highly enough -- just make sure to treat yourself to excellent speakers or headphones that can really showcase everything going on here. Then sit back and sail away. Wrestling with heartache never felt so good.
