White Shadow
3 stars The last album of Hackett's first era as a solo artist. He would go in a different direction after this and would change labels in a few years due to disagreement over his direction.

Hackett comes back again with the same lineup. It is not as good as its predecessor and has some weaker tracks, though never bad ones. I should point out that this is a relative measure. Hackett is capable of amazing material and something weak for him is not necessarily bad at all. There are some great moments and songs mixed in. The highlights are "The Steppes". "Two Vamps as Guests", and "Jacuzzi". "Hammer in the Sand" is also excellent. "Slogans" is basically just a showpiece for Hackett's tapping ability (He did invent it after all (at least the use of it on a guitar)). Nonetheless, it is very entertaining. Overall, "Defector" is very decent.

White Shadow | 3/5 |
