1 stars This is my Fourth Chapter in MY BIGGEST PROGROCK DISILLUSIONS. This time the focus is on Steve Hackett. Due to several reasons I was never able to witness Genesis 70-77 but when Hackett left Genesis I was determined to follow him on his solo concerts. So I was there when he first visited Holland in '79 and since then I have seen Hackett every time he visited Holland. I enjoyed his gigs very much but I noticed that there was a growing amount of non-progressive songs, a bit too poppy or too romantic. The album "Cured" was for me the proove that Mr. Stephen Hackett was too happy with his Brasilian girlfriend Kim Poor. For me it's unbelievable that one person can write magnificent songs like "Unconditioned nightmare" and "Ovenight sleeper" and on the other hand crap like most of the other songs on this album! Hackett is one of my guitar-heroes, I dream away with his splendid DVD's and I was so delighted to hear "Firth of fifth" and his great rendition of "Watcher of the skies" during his latest concert in Holland last year but this album was a hugh disappointment.
