4 stars The second album Steve Hackett released and the first one since leaving Genesis in 1977. To make a long story short, it's a great album but rather odd when compared to other Hackett and Genesis releases. Tere's some excellent songwriting here. "Narnia", "icarus ascending", "Hoping love will last" are brilliant progressive rock songs but they are not epics and no dazzling instrumentals which you can find on other Hackett albums. Maybe the title track is most typical Hackett as you can expect from a guitar player of a progressive band. "Kim" is an accoustic piece which reminds me of the Genesis classic "Horizons". Don't misunderstand me, this is a great album, there are times in which I consider this as the best album the man has ever made. Maybe it's a pity he didn't continue in this direction. Some big names like Steve Walsh from Kansas, Randy Crawford and Richie Havens did vocals for this album and the result is far better when compared to the voice of Steve himself or even the voice of Pete Hicks who sang on other albums. If don't have this one, then get it !!!!
