A Different Twist -- Interesting interpretation lacks some of the spirit,

This review is from: A Tribute to The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (Audio CD)
Well done, different and worth the investment if you love the Lamb. An interesting approach, and I will be listening to it from time to time. But it lacks the intensity and honesty of the original. And while I'm a HUGE fan of the musicians in Genesis, the thing I miss most about this "rewiring" is Peter's voice. It is the opposite of sterile--intense, but ranging from low and calm to almost screeching. If he doesn't have a classically "great" voice, he certainly has on of the most interesting good voices. D'Virgilio's, on the other hand, is a classically spot-on voice with almost no character.
So, get this if you love the lamb and want to hear very interesting alternate arrangements. They are done well. But get the original if you want the best version.
