3 stars More genre bending action from accomplished guitarist Steve Hackett. Some might like to think that of all of the Steve H's in the Progressive Rock world, Steve Hackett is the most accomplished classical guitarist, but this album gives Mr. Howe a run for his money. This classical album is among many of the diverse genres that Hackett has dabbled in.

The music is very pretty throughout the album. However, it all sounds too similar at times, and they can get boring in the middle. Hackett's guitar work shines throughout the similarities, though. The orchestra album plays with precision and is utterly perfect, but again, it all sounds too similar.

Overall, this isn't one of Hackett's best, it certainly is good, but not his best. Nothing I would recommend to someone just getting into Hackett, but an overall solid effort. 3/5.
