Product description

Product description

ENHANCED CD - EAN 724384954000


Created for the performance area situated at the centre of the Millennium Dome, Peter Gabriel's Ovo is an ambitious concept piece that attempts to address the stages of human evolution through a family saga. That it fails--at least in this setting--is not all that surprising given the project it's associated with. Never one to be intimidated by a concept or a challenge (see Genesis, the early years, or The Last Temptation of Christ), Gabriel may have been the ideal choice for a multi-cultural, technology-focused show, and his general instincts seem sound. But even Cirque du Soleil, whose work this most resembles, never had to contend with the blending of Gaelic folk and tribal overtones, techno-futuristic soundscapes and gentle ballads, or a sludgy re-working of "Digging in the Dirt" complete with a rapped storyline. Though there are some fine, interesting moments here, they're too often lost in the shuffle--which sounds as much like a requiem for the Dome as it does for Ovo. --Randy Silver
