3 stars The last album of Hackett's first era as a solo artist. He would go in a different direction after this one.This album represents one of the last truly great old school prog albums in my opinion. From here on , Hackett's work became more diverse and less 'prog' based than his previous albums. In the same vein with Spectral mornigs, but with a little darker aproach in some pieces, like on The Steppes, Hackett proves is one of the true guitar heroes of his time. So the best tracks are: The Steppes, Time to get Out and Jacuzzi. The members are all great here, the voice of Steve shines here. Although often not considered a great vocalist, he seems to do very well on this album. All in all a great album In Hackett style but non essential i think, 3 stars for this one, good no doubt but less enjoyble than previous ones.
