From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Before I visited this website I never gave any thought to the possibility that Peter Gabriel was anything but a prog act. None of his music has ever seemed particular pop-like to me. Though, admittedly, a few of his 'more popular' songs seem to lose the prog in prog rock. Still, most of his music seems to me like progressive rock. With that said, this DVD is by far the best of Peter Gabriel that I've ever heard or seen. The music on the DVD is simply unbelievably performed and credit goes to all the musicians (Levin, Evans, Rachel Z etc) who performed on it. If it was a DVD filled with Shock The Monkey's and Sledgehammer's it wouldn't be a 5/5 but with the inclusions of songs like Downside Up, Secret World and Red Rain, it's a special, special performance that epitomises the mantra 'a masterpiece of progressive rock music'.
