4.0 out of 5 stars Well Done Tribute to Peter Gabriel, June 7, 2002
This review is from: Dream in Red: Music of Peter Gabriel (Audio CD)
I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of tribute albums unless the songs are being performed by other artists that I'm a fan of. However, that is no reason not to give lesser-known artists a chance. _Dream in Red_ is a fitting tribute to Peter Gabriel done by The American Rock Orchestra, with Felicia Sorensen on the majority of vocals and the Los Angeles African Choir on "Biko". Several of the renditions would make nice background music - very soothing, nothing too ground-breaking, but there are lively productions as well. "Red Rain" is given a very modern production and features a strong vocal performance from Alfreda Gerald. "Mercy Street" is jazzed-up and therefore is more upbeat than the original version that appears on _So_ - but this is not a bad thing as it works well. The saxophone on "Here Comes the Flood" also works well. "Games Without Frontiers" is not that different from the original arrangement. It is notable that the artists have done their homework - "Washing of the Water" and "Blood of Eden" not only work from the blueprint of the studio versions but also from the versions found on _Secret World Live_. All in all, if you're a big Peter Gabriel fan, you'll find several things to like on this tribute album, and there's nothing that will turn you off.
