    Despite Gabriel's performances, there are no hits here. [#10, p.117]
  2. Perhaps appropriately, Up sounds like an album that was ten years in the making, revealing not just its pleasures but its intent very, very slowly.
  3. Long one of rock's most innovative artists, Gabriel has never sounded more out of touch.

    A seriously good CD for those who're serious about their music. Also recommended, the DVD of the tour (Growinh Up Live).
