5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece!, 27 Oct 2011
This review is from: Peter Gabriel New Blood Live In London Deluxe Edition [DVD + Blu-ray + 2CD] [2012] (DVD)
This is a stunning piece of work! I was lucky enough to attend the second night of the two Hammersmith shows (having attended the initial 'Scratch My Back' tour at the O2). Peter's interpretations of his back catalogue are well put together, excellently produced and beautifully played by the New Blood Orchestra. Peter's vocals are also a perfect match...full of emotion when they need to be, yet not overwhelming against the background of the orchestral arrangements.
If listening to this on CD only, you can understand why some have not been so complimentary. Your mood or listening environment can affect the way in which you feel about the music. However, load up the Blu-ray and play it through your 5.1 surround system and you are immediately transported back to Hammersmith as part of the audience. As with all Gabriel productions, both sound and visuals have been carefully managed to provide the optimum listening and viewing experience.
One final point is the packaging. Almost 'LP-sized' (for those of a certain age), the hardback book-style case is immediately recognisable as a quality item. Weighty, and made of good quality materials, it's a pleasure to hold and the print quality of the photographs is also excellent.
All in all it's one of the best 'special editions' packs I've purchased for any artist and coupled with such high quality content too, this is recommended without reservation. 10/10
