Episode 462: Peter Gabriel’s ‘Us’

gabriel1

Peter Gabriel’s sixth solo LP, Us, might be the music icon’s finest hour, but it was born from some of the lowest points in his life. Fueled by the pain of his divorce, estrangement from his daughter, and a growing awareness of an unraveling world around him, Us takes an unflinching look at the messiness, pain, and beauty that make up our relationships to not just those closest to us, but humanity writ large.

All you need is love on a special Valentine’s Day edition of Discologist celebrating Gabriel’s often-overlooked masterpiece, Us!
