Some great vocal performances on Steam, Washing of the Water, and Kiss that Frog. Musically, overall a little flatter than So; doesn't reach the highs or lows. It's definitely worth a listen.

Very good album. Best 10 songs average is 88,3/100 and the album can get very good 90/100. Best songs are "Come talk to me", "Blood of eden", "Steam", Digging in the dirt" and Kiss that frog" all very good 90/100. All other songs ok to good 75-85/100. Favourite!
Genre: Art Rock, Pop Rock

From WillyMac
Very underrated album. It is very comparable to "So". I think it's actually better, and second only to PG III. Much of it is more creative than "So" although Steam really is a sequel to Sledgehammer. There is nothing on "So" as dark and nasty as Digging in the Dirt or as clever and slimy as Kiss that Frog. I think Secret World and Blood of Eden are two of his very best songs ever and remind me of his best work with Genesis, re: Carpet Crawler and Cinema Show, without being sequels to them. Washing of the Water is the culmination of his lyrical obsession with water (think Here Comes the Flood, Family and the Fishing Net, I Go Swimming, Across the River) and it strikes me as cathartic - like he knows that he has now got the obsession beaten... Come Talk to Me is brilliant and very creative musically (bagpipes!). The only song I don't like much is Love To Be Loved, but I like it better than Big Time from "So"... There is no question that this album is virtually as good as "So" and if it had been released in 1987, a year after "So" would have been much more popular than it was in 1992, by which time many fans of "So" had moved on and forgotten about PG...

Peter Gabriel's break up album. Us, is his first and last LP of the nineties and features some great songs. Digging in the dirt, and, steam, are great, but, come talk to me, and, blood of Eden, are two of the loveliest things Gabriel has ever done. It's just another solid Peter Gabriel record.

A lot of relationship turmoil informed Us and it tears at the heart as a result. He continues embellishing down a "world music" rock path (that he'd pursue further via Real World Records) that gives these tales of emotional turmoil solid ground to root from, something real to grow from up to the harsh sunlight of obviously frayed and torn relationships.

The album is OK. A very good start but then a little worse

The last album featuring Gabriel as a strong writer. Not up to his previous work, but still worth owning.

Great album, I personally prefer Peter Gabriel III and So, but I like some of the songs here. I dislike how he introduced pop into his recordings but still there are songs like "Blood of Eden" which make this album great.
