4/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.0
You'll be looking up in surprise at this one
Review written by John Fitzgerald, June 23rd, 2005

When you hear obvious "single material" such as "Growing up" from the "Up" album, one would think it would remind one of Gabriel's more commercial outings such as "Us" and "So" with shorter more catchy songs and I do admit that this is what I had anticipated with "Up" having heard how this was to be his "first proper album in 10 years (etc.)" but the fact of the matter is, this is a perfect "middle ground" between "commercial" and "art" type work. The above mentioned song clocks in as the third longest song on the record surprisingly at seven and a half minutes in duration. Even a song such as "Sky blue" which sounds like an epic of all proportions will surprise you as although it clocks in a six and half minutes, it's actually "in the middle" as far as times go on this album, technically being fourth shortest, but only barely, as there are 2 other songs that clock in at over six minutes (but shorter than "Sky blue") and one at (almost) three minutes and when hearing it, one wishes this "almost three minute one" was longer. The "short" track in question is "The drop" which ends the album, it's a piano and vocal only "Here comes the flood" style number and although it lacks the drama that "Here comes the flood" has, it still works well for what it is in it's own right. What starts the album is "Darkness" which goes from quite verse parts to white noise chorus sections of underwater elephant sounding wah wah guitars & crashing drums (though the quiet parts are the best ones). This is the track that sounds most "arty", like early Genesis style or perhaps early Gabriel solo styled, it reminds me of something that would be found on his second solo album (such as "I don't remember"). "Sky blue" itself is the best song on the record anyways regardless of Peter Green's inclusion (though it certainly helps!), an emotional, dark, stirring, moody number, the piano punctuates perfectly into the chiming/echoing guitars of the instrumental section (though they are surrounded by haunting choral type vocal chants by The Blind Boys Of Alabama. If the part that I think is Green's guitar is in fact Greeny (as David Rhodes & Daniel Lanois also play guitar on this track), then you can hear him better on this recording then you can on "Ngankarrparni (Sky blue - Reprise)" & "Cloudless" from Gabriel's earlier 2002 release which was the soundtrack to the film "Rabbit Proof fence" (he entitled the soundtrack album "Long walk home") though there are a few noticeable licks on the guitar part in question that one can only hear on "Ngankarrparni (Sky blue -
Reprise)" from LWH, though quieter. This is definitely the best of the bunch on the "Sky Blue theme variations" available overall though. "No way out" tries to be a "Red rain" soundalike additionally including it's brushes feel on the rhythm track but it's not as rocking and there's less of a hook but it can't be all that bad if it wants to be "Red rain"! It is disappointing though in that it's not as adventurous as one would hope from the longest song on the CD (at close to 8 minutes in length). "I grieve" is a slow builder which starts as a mellow, moody keyboards and rhythm workout which around the 5 minute mark goes in to an upbeat funk styling which gets abandoned not too much longer after it starts to it's quiet end. "The Barry Williams show" is more hit type material led by it's tough beat and horn sound (though the "horn(s)" sounds a bit electronic). In case you were wondering, although there is a TV reference in the lyrics made towards Jerry Springer type sensationalism, it has nothing to do with Greg Brady. "My head sounds like that" is the worst track on the album as it's rather uninspired with that horn sound leading the way again, it's slow in getting started though oddly the beginning ends up being the best part as it has a nice build but 4 minutes in we get that white noise thump again but it quickly stops seconds later which makes it seem irrelevant at the end of the listen. "More than this" is the best of the "hit" sounding material, it's upbeat with useful echo delay guitar picks on the chorus and "Signal to noise" is a string laden tune with Bobby Mcferrin meets middle eastern flavored vocals, the drums at the end try to give it a "Biko" feeling but it fails for the most part as that's a hard act to follow. With the few minor flaws aside, "Up" is essential to both Gabriel's (& Green's "guest appearance", even in a small way) works.
