Very funny thanks Rraven, don't think I've ever seen a violin played with a milk frother before (I think that's what it was!) :-]

You're quite welcome. I thought that was a dental drill.

Thanks for the welcome Duddy!
I'm an old moon club lunatic from way back, not much of poster, but I've enjoyed perusing these forums since they started. Now that Peter is finally coming back to North America again, I'm getting all riled up into posting mode! :-]
Seven years was a long wait. although better than 9 year interlude before that!
And yes, the zorb pic is Peter in 2003 Washington DC, a fabulous show!
I'm really looking forward to seeing this one, with a 54 piece orchestra at his disposal whatever songs he chooses to play should be amazing!
I have been a fan of PG for over 20 years. I've been fortunate enough to see him a few times in concert including a dress rehearsal performance in Rochester NY for the beginning of his US tour. I even got to meet him and he was kind enough to give me an autograph. He is one of my favorite musicians ever.
Well, I've listed to the album a few times now and I am still not sure what to think. I am listening to it now while typing this post. My first impressions are downers, as most of the tracks seem to be, and I love when this guy digs down deep into the emotions and what he can do with his talents. He can be so beautiful. Out of an entire world of music to choose from, some of the selections are puzzling, but it is his project and he is allowed to do as he likes. However, the renditions of these covers are so slow, plodding, and alike that they are at risk of becoming monolithic. I enjoyed Flume the most, but many of the other songs were so stripped down that they just became saddened ghosts forever doomed to roam this earth. The most recent album Hit took awhile to grow on me, but I enjoyed it the more I played it. I am not sure this one will be able to do the same since it has such a deep hole to climb out of. I am sorry Peter, very sorry. Unfortunately, this may go down as my least favorite album of his. I hope he doesn't take another decade to produce his next one. I'll still be waiting.
