Awesome
27 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Glad to see that it's come back home to where it belongs...!

The Hollywood attempts at the films were very poor but you tend to find that with Hollywood remakes of classic English material.

No offense to US folk but am very tired of all the garbage remakes. Pink Panther, Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy etc etc.

This concert is a MUST BUY for true War of the Worlds fans. Had goose bumps and my hair stood on end when I got this and sat down to it(high volume of course)on my system.

Excellent production of an Excellent composition just was sad not to see all the Original Cast but that is sadly unavoidable. That takes NOTHING away from the performances.

Faultless musicians... Just buy it OK!!! It's well worth your money. I bought the 2 disc edition but either one you choose will be good.
