Us is very mellow, with only a few uptempo songs.

Actually, you can kind of say that for all of his albums. They tend to be slower pieces except for one or two songs.

My personal favorites, besides So, are the third self-titled album (Melt) and Us.

Security. Slow and moody peices describe it exactly. It is probably his best album too.

Peter Gabriel is a passionate and COMpassionate singer/songwriter. His brand of popular music has always been thoughtful, and thought-provoking. He is the English equivalent to Bono.

My respect for him has even increased further in recent years when I read that he refused to take part in Live 8, an event for Africa that denied artists FROM Africa on it's stage. In reaction, Gabriel staged his own version with predominately African artists.

My two favorite solo works of his are 'Melt' and 'Security.' My favorite Genesis stuff of his are 'Selling England by the Pound', 'Live', and 'The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.' I feel that Genesis have sucked badly since he left.

Of course! I cannot get enough of "In Your Eyes," "Shock the Monkey," "Big Time," and "I've Got the Touch!"
