5 stars Steve Hackett's debut album, and what an album! Frequently tagged as the "lost" Genesis album, "Voyage of the Acolyte" is just wonderful down to the last drop. "Ace of Wands" opens things up beautifully, with the main riff of said song being present on different tracks throughout the album, which I am a sucker of. The rest of the album strives for excellence and certainly achieves it. Sally Oldfield's vocals on "Shadow of the Hierophant" are amazing and Steve's singing on "The Hermit" is pleasant, but his guitar work takes the show without a doubt. Definitely get this album if you enjoy Genesis. Disappointment is not an option here. Pure pleasure you'll get from this album.

1. "Ace of Wands" - 10/10

2. "Hands of the Priestess Part I" - 9/10

3. "A Tower Struck Down" - 8.5/10

4. "Hands of the Priestess Part II" - 9/10

5. "The Hermit" - 9/10

6. "Star of Sirius" - 10/10

7. "The Lovers" - 8.5/10

8. "Shadow of the Hierophant" - 8.5/10

72.5/8 = 90.625% = 5 stars!

Lark the Starless | 5/5 |
