The Ace Face
3 stars This is the famous, "Lost Genesis Album", and it is very similar to the Genesis sound indeed. The presence of Rutherford and Collins Only emphasizes that fact. While it is a good album, I like later albums better when Hackett Started to Develop his own sound and his own team of musicians. The highlights here are the Opening Ace of Wands, a powerful, shifting prog piece that shows off Hackett's talents well enough, as well as the debut of his brother John on flute, which is gorgeous. The Hands of the Priestess has nice acoustics and flute, as does the Hermit. Star of Sirius is ok, but a little too noisy for my tastes, as is A Tower Struck down. Shadow of the Hierophant is Incredible, giving us some beautiful female vocals with Sally Oldfield, and some very interesting chord progressions. But, overall, Hackett would make much better albums in the near future. This is a transition between Genesis and Post Genesis.
The Ace Face | 3/5 |
