having enjoyed the music of peter gabriel for many years both with genesis and on his own, peter gabriel has become without doubt one of my music heros. having seen him perform last year at the 02 in london with his blood orchestra i have been waiting in anticipation for this set to come out.
on first glance the set of 4 discs along with a 200 page colour photographed album looks and feels a quality item, nothing has been spared to give an impression that what you have is a piece of music history, a product that like everything peter gabriel does reeks of quality.
the music, well, i really could go on for hours as to this amazing work, it chills you to the bone from the outset, songs of immense clarity, songs of immense meaning and songs written right from the heart. peters own work is mixed alongside some songs that are not his own, but he does them total justice. the dvd of the concert at the hammersmith apollo is first class, again total quality throughout. this de-luxe set is worth every penny, you are getting the work of a master of his craft, not many singer songwriters have the ability to grasp an audience from the start and actually make you feel you are in a private audience with peter. this is an amazing work which will bring you into the realms of real music, of hard work and total comittmet by the artist. this is a must for any serious music collection, it is wonderful, 10 out of 10.
