2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 18 Oct. 2011
This review is from: New Blood - Live In London [Blu-ray] [2011] (Blu-ray)
Had this on my wish list until I heard Gabriel and the New Blood orchestra on Jools Holland's 'Later'. Anaemic arrangements, passionless singing. Could have been so good. I'm not against orchestralising classic rock/pop - it can be done well, in a way that gives a positively different perspective on the original. But this is weak stuff. Not for me.

Stick to the subject matter - this is supposed to be a review of the Bluray, which you haven't got! It's not supposed to be a critique of the music itself.

The quality of the musical arrangements of well-known material is fair content for a review of a music product isn't it?

It's best to wait until you see a video before reviewing it. The tiny studio setting on Later with Jools does not give any indication of the vastness of this show!

No dude.You haven't seen the blu-ray so don't assume it'll be as bad as the Jools Holland show.So please keep reviews and star ratings to yourself till you've actually seen the blu-ray.

Ridiculous! If you haven't seen the Bluray then don't review it. You have no idea what the full scale concert is like and can't even come close to comparing it to a small set on Jools Holland.

If you're so desperate to review it, then may I suggest you buy a copy and then make your mind up. If you don't like it you can always send it back.

Hardly a bloody review is it - you haven't even seen the product!
Not helpful to anyone.
You are welcome to your thoughts and comments but they are out of place here and this is not a review. What is the picture like? What is the sound quality like? You haven't got a clue...

Your missing the point mate. Of course you can base your judgement on whether you should buy the DVD on his marketing. However you have reviewed a product that you haven't seen and so can't comment on it. If Amazon sold a copy of Mr Gabriel's performance on Jools Holland, then your review would be perfectly valid to that, but not to a DVD you haven't even seen. Also nobody is asking to reconsider your viewpoint, just the fact you have left a review for something you haven't seen.

Its simple
If you think you can review something you haven't seen then do so by all means but keep it to yourself.
Oh and don't play with anything sharp.
