Reviews

Peter Gabriel s Grammy Award winning film Secret World Live has now been newly restored and remastered from the original film to be seen and heard in the best possible quality on DVD. Filmed in Modena, Italy across two nights in November 1993 as part of Peter Gabriel s acclaimed Secret World Live tour in support of the Us album, the show is elaborately presented and choreographed with two stages joined by a narrow pier. Peter Gabriel has always been a charismatic live performer with the ability to draw his audience into the onstage world he has created and rarely has this been better captured than on Secret World Live . 1) Come Talk To Me 2) Steam 3) Across The River 4) Slow Marimbas 5) Shaking The Tree 6) Blood Of Eden 7) San Jacinto 8) Kiss That Frog 9) Washing Of The Water 10) Solsbury Hill 11) Digging In The Dirt 12) Sledgehammer 13) Secret World 14) Don t Give Up 15) In Your Eyes

I just watched this tonight - it came quickly from Amazon.
I am going to be brutaly honest here - I wasn't expecting much.
I already had this on DVD. I was at the Glasgow concert in 1993 - it blew me away.
Anyway back to the blu ray.
I cranked up the sub and 5.1 on DTS.
Wow the soundtrack was amazing. A great vibrant 5.1 mix.
The visuals however blew me away truly - I had not noticed so much in the past - the concert looks so fresh, vibrant and current its unreal.

Really really enjoyed it- highlights were Come Talk To Me, San Jancinto, Blood Of Eden and Secret World, whilst Red Rain was also brilliant.

I can't recommend this enought to people who have this on DVD , god forbid still on VHS - the recolouring is amazing as is the definition.

Well done to all involved.

This is an amazing Blue Ray.

I have upgraded the US tour in my mind thanks to this by leaps and bounds.

Format: Blu-ray
Peter Gabriel's 1994 "Secret World" tour is the only one he has brought to Australia, and what I witnessed and thoroughly enjoyed in Brisbane, with family and friends, was a reduced stage design from the gala installation which we see in this film - but there was no scrimping on showmanship, musicianship, audio quality or lighting.

The new - July 2012 - version for Blu-ray is VASTLY superior to the 2003 DVD in video quality - it makes that DVD look more like poor VHS quality. The 16mm film has been newly transferred at 2K resolution (cinema projection quality) then each frame was fully restored and then the colours and contrasts were expertly balanced. You could not hope for better quality - the improvement over the 2003 DVD is truly astonishing.

The audio quality of the Blu-ray will sound very similar to the DVD for most listeners - because these are same high quality stereo and 5.1 surround mixes as were used on the 2003 DVD - with the improvement for Blu-ray being that the stereo track is in uncompressed PCM (rather than the DVD's Dolby 2.0) and the surround is in lossless DTS HD Master 5.1 (rather than the DVD's compressed DTS 5.1 and Dolby 5.1 options). The surround mix was made from the original multitrack tapes - and creates an enveloping and creative soundscape (it's a whole world away from that business of applying synthetic treatments to a stereo track in order to invent a phony 5.1 surround track).

The Blu-ray has the same extras as the 2003 DVD, but with a preview for the New Blood Blu-ray/DVD rather than for the Growing Up DVD, and the welcome bonus of a "Secret World" tour performance of "Red Rain". For any Peter Gabriel fan, this a must see as a state of the art memento. This is one the world's greatest bands having the time of the lives, being inventively filmed, perfectly recorded - and with the benefit of the most respectful and appreciative of audiences.

Format: DVD
The DVD release of a fan favourite live video from Peter Gabriel should have been a more prized offering. The Secret World concerts were as theatrical and dramatic as anything Gabriel has done. The staging is compelling, and it is a thrill to see how much fun musicians and audience are having.
In the end it has to be said that the picture quality of the DVD release is less than fantastic. More disappointing is the sound quality. I am familiar with both the original VHS release and the CD version, and listening to this on my pretty good DVD/hifi the sound is just not up to scratch. Tony Levin's bass in particular, always a strong point in any Gabriel live performance, is almost lost in the general mix (not an issue on the other formats incidentally). Why oh why oh why mess around with the soundtrack by re-recording/mixing certain elements of the sound? You need to realise that many of us - especially true followers of your music - welcome the rawness and spontaneity of live performances, warts and all. The concert happened 10 years ago - don't mess with it further! This version? Scrapes 4, but really guys it should have been good enough to justify 5.

Format: DVD
Hmm, tricky one. Secret World, and Peter Gabriel's 1980's - 1990's vintage work was always lighter than the ascendant Nirvarna's et al of the time, but that doesn's make it any the worse.
This is really a theatrical performance on an epic scale as well as a musical one: the show's production values were staggering, and the quality of the playing (Tony Levin on bass and Paula Cole on vocals being the most noteworthy examples) superb. It's the kind of semi egotistical thing that progressive rock always did so well, and here, it's no different. Excellent staging, lighting, camera work, screens and effects play their role with well-rehearsed slickness to support the performers. Musically, it initially seems to verge toward light-rock, but rapidly the classic Gabriel world-music develops, adding superb texture and depth to the atmosphere of the tracks. Subtle it is not. Enjoyable it certainly is, especially with Gabriel's typically positive approach toward even the grimmer situations covered by his lyrics.
The DVD is a good one. Picture quality is appropriate for a live performance -some slight graininess, but this should be expected, and adds to the general ambiance. The extras are worth looking at (which isn't ususally the case in my experience), and the sound quality is superb in stereo and DTS 5.1, while even the Dolby Digital 5.1 isn't too bad.
Bottom line -it's certainly not for everyone, but it's a thoroughly enjoyable watch and worth the money. Great fun.
