Review by progkidjoel

Peter Gabriel is a brilliant songwriter, and one of the few who can do what he does with such mastery and finesse in studio in a live setting. This DVD proves this, without a doubt. It contains a brilliant setlist, showing a range of Peter Gabriel's possible musical genres and expressions, from pop to full blown prog, and it does this all in a brilliantly majestic performance. Nearly every track is a highlight on this one, particularly SOLSBURY HILL (a personal favourite) which is a brilliant pop tune with massive prog overtones, and is played fantastically in this live performance with Peter Gabriel and his crew. IN YOUR EYES also stands out massively because of its massively energetic performance.

This is recorded fantastically, and leaves little to desire sonically. TONY LEVIN gives a powerful and energetic performance on the bass and Chapman Stick in this particular concert, and PAULA COLE does the same on vocals. The camera angles are always appropriate and engaging, and does what many live recordings find difficult to do - Show the audience what is appropriate 90% of the time.

A fantastic DVD, and easily reccomendable to nearly any prog (or in this case pop) music lover.

Enjoy, and buy it!
