Sistine gives us another example of Anthony's considerable vocal talents and
although not one of my favourite tracks; it has an added charm of its own in
the live context and serves to convince me that Anthony really should sing more
often on his albums. The highlight for me personally comes with Lights On The
Hill which just gets better every time I hear it. A Truly wonderful performance
of a delightful piece of music.
Rounding off the album are two contrasting pieces: Last Goodbyes; another delightful sample of Anthony's piano skills, leading into the sweeping grandeur of Collections with a stunning vocal performance from Anthony; so much better even than the original version.
If you have ever wondered what it would be like to hear Anthony in concert; this CD will serve as a very useful pointer and may just help to convince Anthony to try the real thing in the not too distant future.
Accompanying the disc, is a booklet comprising the lyrics to all of Anthony's songs, with the exception of It's Not Easy which were omitted at Anthony's request. The booklet is delightfully accompanied by introductory text and a charming design by Helmut Janisch; editor of the German Genesis fan Magazine: IT. As a complete package this one is hard to beat and it is a MUST for fans of Anthony's music.
