1 stars Before I start discussing the album, Steve Hackett is one of my favorite guitarists and he was great in Genesis and his earlier solo albums but good lord!! This album is basically a mess. It has some okay poppy songs, but the songs that try to be proggy end up being pretty bad. For example, the second song is the same riff over and over again, and to make it be sort of proggy he puts a bad percussion section in the middle of the song. I think Steve Hackett suffers the same problem many solo artists do-songwriting. His music is all over the place on this album and his choices really don't make sense. Another Example is when he made the 'song' A Doll Made In Japan. That song's terrible, and really everything else isn't that good either.

Overall, everthing is either too commercial or wannabe prog on this album and the only person I would recommend this to is a collector. I wouldn't even tell a Steve Hackett fan to get it because even me, being a Steve Hackett fan, hates this album. So DON'T BUY IT!!! IT'S A TRAP!!!!!
