4 stars 4.25: as today in 2019, the most recent album of Steve Hackett and the the 25th in his career . Musically, It is a very good album, I'm impressed with the quality of this one, very eclectic sound, including more heavier guitars and dark symphonic ambient, it sounds like a combination of king crimson riffs, neo symphonic and a few of their classic roots from genesis. In fact, sometimes it sound like space and ambient rock, so you never get bored because of the constant changes in the music. Lyrically, i consider it good, In my interpretation,it has very dark thematic too, it talks about you have to affront that kind of periods and appreciate more the things that matters to you. Vocally, his voice accompanied very well the music and adds different melodies and tonalities to the songs. The songs are very progressive, a lot of changes of rhythm are present, the keyboards set a dark ambient and the guitars are very heavy, they surprised you every time they appear among the dark ambient, the solos are really entertained. A very different work in comparison with his first albums and genesis work, but a very good work made at the final product. A really good album, his third best in my opinion and an excellent addition to any prog collection.
