Good but Beware!,
This review is from: Peter Gabriel: New Blood - Live in London [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Peter Gabriel's music with no drums, guitars, bass, this is what this Blu-Ray is. It's new arrangements of songs with orchestra and a couple of females vocalists. So those news versions are classical oriented and are definitively more relaxed than the original songs. There is also about four songs taken from others composers. Those songs didn't grab my attention as very interesting songs, as some late Gabriel's songs, like "In Your Eyes" and "Don't Give Up". My favorite songs are from my favorite cd, and it's "The Rhythm Of The Heat" and "San Jacinto".
The music is more of a background sound to let the beautiful voice of Peter shines. The picture quality is excellent as the DTS-HD sound. I don't know if i can recommend this for all Peter Gabriel's fans. Maybe they will be disappointed with the quiet atmosphere and sound, missing the rock environement. For me, i didn't feel enough brilliant moments to enjoy the performance from start to finish.

Thanks for the warning. I am buying it just for Peter. I like the original versions but I think it will be cool to see them to a classical arrangement.
