Peter Gabriel: Live In Athens Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Peter Gabriel Live in Athens 1987 is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Eagle Vision (an imprint of Eagle Rock Entertainment) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. There are probably going to be somewhat bifurcated responses to this Blu-ray depending on an individual's experience with prior releases of this material (in whatever form). Those who have not previously seen this concert in its former home video iterations may be at least slightly underwhelmed, due to the lack of "pop" that is simply the result of a fairly minimalist stage production that often finds Peter performing in near darkness (one of the reasons this review has so few screenshots is that there simply isn't that much to see a lot of the time). However, if you have seen this concert previously on either VHS (stop laughing) or last year's DVD, you will probably be spectacularly pleased with the uptick in detail and definition here, though again it must be emphasized that a lot of the time (at least during the longer Gabriel section of the evening), there isn't a ton of bells, whistles, and lighting displays to keep the eye occupied. Black levels are absolutely superb here, and contrast is very strong as well, offering a really stark differentiation between the nighttime shadows and darkened stage and Gabriel's alabaster suit. Though this was sourced from 35mm, things may strike some videophiles as relatively soft, and while I wouldn't argue with that assessment, I'd in turn point to the naturally film like appearance here as well as the largely impeccable detail on the musicians' clothing and the like. One issue that may bother some is the relative lack of grain. It's noticeable—if you put your nose right up to the screen. But some are probably going to think that it should be more noticeable, especially since so much of this concert is so dark to begin with. It should also be noted that this has been reformatted from the P.O.V. 1.33:1 framing, though my hunch is since Scorsese had his Raging Bull cinematograher Michael Chapman film this, this (or at least 1.85:1) may in fact have been the intended OAR all along.


Peter Gabriel: Live In Athens Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Peter Gabriel Live in Athens 1987 features both a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix as well as an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 stereo fold down. As the incisive liner notes in the insert booklet and some other available documentation detail, not only was this release painstakingly remastered from the film negative, it was also remixed from original stems, including multitrack originals that reportedly had every separate instrument and vocal available as discrete channels. The result is an absolutely incredible aural experience, certainly the best—by a long shot—this concert has ever sounded. The layering of sounds is almost crystalline here, with the 5.1 track neatly offering an incredibly transparent window into hearing how Gabriel builds huge edifices out of apparently simply motives and ideas. The low end on the 5.1 track is amazingly full bodied, offering a brilliant accounting not just of the bass but also the battery of percussion that accompanies most of the tracks. There are a couple of revisionist moments here that evidently came courtesy of Gabriel himself, including the excision of his feral cries in Mercy Street, and while those may bother rabid completists, they're ultimately of such minor concern that the sheer immediacy of the audio on this release should easily outweigh any momentary qualms.
