5 stars I believe Steve Hackett has always been mistreated by Tony, Phil and Mike. Selecting the themes for 'The Lamb', 'Trick Of The Tail' and 'Wind & Wuthering' they left out a number of beautiful songs, riffs and melodies composed by the shy Steve - and Steve's first three albums were his revenge. First of them, 'Voyage Of The Acolyte' (his best) presents a series of majestic, delicate, dark, medieval, strange & unusual songs (check the monstruous 'Hierophant' theme, played by brother John Hackett - an incredible fluteman - on the Moog Taurus Bass Pedals, with the hands!) that could take the place of some craps (by the same Tony, Phil & Mike) as 'Your Own Special Way', 'Trick Of The Tail', , 'Squonk', 'It'. 'Hands Of The Priestess, Part 1' is on a level Genesis rarely reached! This is an essential album for every prog fan.
