Peter Gabriel: Us
Peter Gabriel’s catalog has been re-issued on half-speed remastered, multi-LP 45rpm pressings.
Us was just delivered – so is today’s spin. It’s on 3 LP’s, though the F-side doesn’t contain music, but a cool etching instead.
Holy crap, this pressing sounds good. Safe to say I’ve never heard it like this.
Us reflects well the blend of pop and world music Gabriel is known for. I tend to lean away from the pop songs and toward his art-rock output.
It’s great to experience this old favorite again.
