If I was more familiar with the songs in here, I know I would like this DVD concert disc more than I do. Gabriel's songs are decent; I have no complaint with them....I am just unfamiliar with a lot of groups from his era.
I like the low-keyness (if there is such a word) in many of his tunes and I like the African sound he has in a couple. The visuals aren't as good as I had hoped. With a DVD, I expect good visuals otherwise the CD will suffice. Perhaps the nicest surprise of this concert was Gabriel's female lead vocalist, Paula Cole, whose voice I really liked.
Gabriel is energetic and his concert does have imagination with a few interesting props, such as the phone booth in the opening number, and later a tree and a trap door.
Overall, I wasn't familiar enough with Gabriel to fairly judge this. I thought it was "fair" overall, but, as mentioned, if I were more familiar with his numbers, I probably wouldn't have rated it higher.
