4 stars Steve Hackett is, after Peter Gabriel, one of my favorite members of Genesis, because of the way of playing the guitar during the classic period. Maybe, he is the member that has composed more albums to date and continues on the road playing and composing amazing music. The 'Wild Orchids' album is definitely a fine piece of art, with incredible instrumental sounds. A great variety of styles are shown in here, symphonic, orchestral, oriental, rock... The album, in its complete version, changes a bit in the order of the songs to the simple version. No matter which one you hear, it fits perfectly. Many of the songs, as I mentioned, are instrumental, but there are some others with lyrics and Hackett singing only as he knows, with different tonalities and nuances that make every song different. I like it so much!
