Millenium Dome Music
Charles de Ledesma reviews the new CD from Peter Gabriel. It's called "Ovo", and it's essentally the soundtrack he wrote for a show in London's Millenium Dome earlier this year. It has the trademark sound of the acclaimed singer -- distinctive yearning vocals, rich production, and world music influences. Ledesma says the CD lacks an overall structure or narrative -- the themes of the Millenium Dome shows don't quite come through -- but the wonderful sound of the songs more than makes up for it. (3:45) The album is on Real World Music; it is currently for sale as an import, but available in most music stores and on websites that sell popular music CDs.
