3 stars Ok it's always an embarassing moment- after all- to make a review about a tribute album like the present one (but whatever prog or alternative artist that you regard, actually who's able to recreate something original?): that is, an expert music producer, as well as a remarkable drummer like D' Virgilio try to do that here, by means of an interesting jazz rock and also an improvement of technology, but what all the fuss about it? Well I've not seen a real "artistic" improvement here and moreover the lack of imagination and their difficulty in creating the "charisma" and talented vocalism by Gabriel, don't make the leap of quality requested. Nevertheless, despite of a poor feeling, the musicians perform their good job and play the songs in the exact manner!! Is it enough? I don't know, but for sure you cannot replace the guitar by Hackett with simple trumpets or horns, without losing the artistic value of a rock opera which was so mystic in the original version. Anyway, even though it's not completely necessary, the present tribute represents an incredible effort after all, as the complex features of the original album can not be reproduced without difficulties... I should be in trouble, If I was called to such a monumental task like the present one, so I'll make a gift and add an other star by evaluating this new tribute.

It's a little worth checking out but nevermind... a funny game being after all!!
