A striking mix of blues, gospel, roots and R&B, Get Up! features 10 vivid musical character studies, skillfully rendered in cinematic detail, all written or co-written by Harper. The politics of personal destruction is palpable on the opening track "Don't Look Twice,": "I'm a living nervous habit/I tremble and I twitch/Keep on pulling at me/Like I'm some kind of hanging stitch." Likewise, a convict measures his prizefight with the truth as Harper growls in the title track: "Don't tell me I can't break the law/Cause the law has broken me."
