Dark shapes moving under me\\
Every fear I swallow makes me small\\
Inconsequential things occur\\
Alarms are triggered, memories stir\\
It's not the way it has to be''"

'''''Up''''' is the seventh studio album by singer-songwriter Music/PeterGabriel, released in September 2002. It is definitely his darkest album since his third SelfTitledAlbum; much of the album revolves around the themes of death and mortality. It was heavily influenced by the death of Gabriel's father, as well as the experience he had when his daughters were in New York on the day of 9/11 and he was unable to contact them.[[note]]They turned out to be okay, but it was very haunting for him, and how.[[/note]]

The album took over eight years to complete, and upon release was his first album to be released in eleven years. Many guest producers and musicians appeared on the album, but regardless it was all produced by Gabriel himself. While not a commercial smash compared to his other albums, it is a major favorite among fans for its emotional honesty and sonic experimentation.

# “Darkness” (6:51)
# “Growing Up” (7:33)
# “Sky Blue” (6:37)
# “No Way Out” (7:53)
# “I Grieve” (7:25)

# “The Drop” (2:59)
----

!! Signal to Tropes:

* AuthorExistenceFailure: One of the guest vocalists on the album, Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, died before the album was completed and released. As a result, his vocals on “Signal to Noise” were taken from an earlier 1997 performance of the song on [=VH1=]. It's utterly seamless.
* DownerEnding: “The Drop” ends a very emotionally-heavy album with a tear-jerking LonelyPianoPiece.
* EpicRocking: With the exception of the last song, ‘’every’’ song on the album is this trope, almost always clocking over 6 or 7 minutes.
* GenreBusting: The album features many influences of genres, such as Industrial Rock, Gospel, AlternativeDance, DreamPop, Jazz-Rock, ElectronicMusic, and ChamberPop.
* LonelyPianoPiece: “The Drop”.
* TakeThat: “The Barry Williams Show” is one to “trash TV” talk shows like ''Series/TheJerrySpringerShow''.
