This new work by Peter Gabriel's old glories with us again dressed differently. After the CD is ready to come out on DVD / Blu-ray concert in March at the Hammersmith Apollo in London. Marketing? One would think. is the reinterpretation of the orchestral repertoire classic. Of course the music is. Of course Peter's voice is superb. Sure. But fans of Peter Gabriel waited another nine years. A new job. New songs. New ideas.

To make the team play there is the arranger John Metcalfe and the "New Blood Orchestra," composed of more than forty elements and directed by Ben Foster. God forbid! Peter knows how to do things big. It 'a master. There are cornets and trumpets and strings. But there are no traditional instruments. Those were the basis and the magic of San Jacinto or Rhythm of the Heat. But there is a new magic. A new dress and elegant atmosphere.

In Bath there is peace. The peace of the hills. The silence of the lakes. The old Piper observes all this. There, where once he imagined the future. Now he has to imagine the past.

After the live albums and collections of old songs. Having stripped and covered things on which we have dreamed. Now we are waiting to see where it's going Peter. The time passes. We can not wait ten years for each new album. Every time.

Mind, Peter is always Peter.
