3 stars Very nice acoustic album, but not very outstanding. By the time it was released I was anxious to hear it since I always thought Steve Hackett would make a wonderful instrumental album done mainly with the classical guitar. Unfortunatly the promise was not entirely fulfilled. Some songs are nice, but the flow is a bit uneven and some parts are simply dull, but none is unbearable. Even the new version for the classic Horizons is spoiled here by the use of too much reverb in the recording. A pity, really. Still itīs an enjoyable album, if you donīt expect too much from such a legendary guitar hero.

By the way, the original Kim Poor illustration is much better than the CD version. I rated it between 2,5 and 3 stars. Recommended specially if you like soft ambient music.
