5.0 out of 5 stars Great reminder of The Millenium show 30 Oct 2012
By DSK
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I went to the millenium show not realising at the time of Peter Gabriels involvement. I stumbled upon this fact many years later and downloaded the album. Peter Gabriel is one of my favourite artists and whilst this is a various artists soundtrack and very diverse in its content there are many good tracks with Peter singing on some but not all tracks. I wanted the special edition cd to complete my PG collection and decided to risk a used copy. The cd arrive in pristine condition within a few days and was great value, I would definately use this seller again.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Project Sans Downside Up 26 Jun 2012
By Scott
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you've come this far then you probably know that this is a soundtrack for the Millennium Dome Show. One of the main aims of this project was to seam world music and who better to do that than the creator of WOMAD.

This CD isn't as focused as his other soundtrack projects and it's greatly misses the visual aspect which you can see in the booklet. Also it probably should be said that Peter Gabriel only really starts singing in parts from Track 5 onwards. His lack of a vocal presence in favour of other vocalists really distances himself from this album. Although it should be said that this album is more of an ensemble effort than just Peter like the Blue Ball project. I really wish he sung the parts that Paul Buchanan sang as it seems hes just copying his vocal style anyway (Make Tomorrow - especially).

This release is worth it to get the tower that ate people/Revenge/White Ashes and The Nest that sailed the sky/the tree that went up/Make Tomorrow. The Tower starts off sounding like an almost 2000's King Crimson improv and at times sounds almost like the residents (White Ashes). Although you may want to skip downside up which in my opinion is peter gabriels worst track. Its just lame and it somehow makes an appearance on the still growing up live DVD and New Blood I hope he pulls this track out of any future live sets. The Ovo version is the best as it neither Melanie Gabriel or Peter sings this track.

I would recommend this one after you've checked out his other 'proper' albums and soundtracks first. Ovo, scratch my back and new blood sort of serve as stop gap releases (which was said in another review) as we patiently wait for I/O will we see it in 2012?

5.0 out of 5 stars Relive Millennium Show 25 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
For thoseof you who saw the FANTASTIC Millennuim Show at the Millennuim Dome and enjoyed it, this is a great way to remember it.
The songs are in the same order as the show and for those of us who have seen the show more than once, this is a bonus.
I havbe always enjoyed PG and I think that this album is deffinatley his style, I know that there is quite a lot of snobbery amungst hard core PG fans regarding this album, but if they took the time to listen to the lyrics and follow the story they would love this album as much as any other PG album! They must at least like Father, son. as this is classic PG.
I can't recommend this highly enough, it has been a few weeks since I last listened to the album but I am still humming along to it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding aural experience ! 10 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
Having just listened to Peter Gabriel's OVO album for the third time I can gladly reveal that it's an unqualified success. The wide range and high quality of musicians involved in this project seem to have brought out the best in PG's writing. With PG sharing vocal duties with the likes of Paul Buchanan and Elizabeth Fraser and an amazing array of instrumentation (everything from Brass bands to tablas), this is an album that is intriguing and exciting. Who else but Peter Gabriel would begin an album about the development of Britain with a song in Gaelic (wonderful vocals by Iarla O Lionaird)? The album is difficult to categorise because of the depth and breadth of musical styles, and it would be impossible to single out any of the contributors as each of them perform to the highest standard. OVO works as one continuous piece but within the framework "The Weavers Reel" and "Downside-Up" stood out for me personally. Gabriel has always respected the intelligence of the listeners by presenting them with music that is at times challenging but is always rewarding and this album is a worthy addition to his impressive back catalogue. If you want to hear something different, new and thrilling - buy OVO.

5.0 out of 5 stars World music at It's best 15 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
I loved Passion so I love this one as well. This is world music at its best. We Peter Gabriel music lovers have been waiting for a long time the annunciated Up release, in the meantime Mr. Gabriel worked in this fabulous show. Don't expect hits such as digging in the dirt or steam this one is for world music lovers and It's worth the money. If you read the list of guest musicians you will be amazed with it. Buy this one, It's simply superb.
