This review is from: Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds - The New Generation: Alive On Stage [Blu-ray] [2012] (Blu-ray)
I am in the US, so for people wondering, it does play in US bluray players (PS3 at least).

I must agree with the people who preferred the original album to the more recent incarnations. Purely on the merits of each individual performance I believe the original was better. Having said that, I am grateful for the opportunity to see this show as I had no other way to do so. It's a lot of fun to watch and the staging is impressive. The live orchestra is excellent.

I was unfamiliar with Marty Pellow's work before seeing this and I do agree that he is the weak link in the overall performance. I personally didn't find it to ruin the whole show though. There is no way to live up to Justin Hayward but it does seem like others could have come closer.

I certainly don't regret the purchase at all.

Hi MM, a Quick Question, can you tell me what subtitles this Blu-Ray have? I can see them clearly on the back cover.

Thanks in advance for your response.

I'm at the office so I asked my wife to look at the cover :) it says English SDH, French, German, Dutch. If I recall correctly those are the options that came up when we were watching the disc too.
