Peter Gabriel's new CD, "UP"

Peter Gabriel’s new CD, “UP” arrived today. The first track, “Darkness” scared “Cody”. It starts out very soft, and then there’s a sudden burst of noise. I have very mixed feelings about this album, but I need to listen to it a few more times. This isn’t an accessible pop album like “So”. It’s very dark & brooding. “Barry Williams Show” is the only upbeat song. I’ve heard at least two of the songs, “Signal to Noise” & “I Grieve” before. One pleasant surprise was Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s vocals on “Signal to Noise”.

Was it worth waiting 10 years? I’m not sure yet. It will be playing on my stereo for a while, though.
