4 stars i consider Momentum to be a superior classical guitar album over Bay of Kings, mostly because the guitar doesn't sound drowned out by synthetic amplifier filters. Also, the compositions have a bit more energy and are overall much more in the classical style. In addition, the new-age symphonic sounds are absent for the most part, though some small touches are noticeable occasionally. Of course, as always, Steve Hackett can play some mean guitar. All of his original compositions here are played with fantastic technique, and the compositions themselves are written with integrity. Most contemporary classical guitar composers have a tendency to write over-simplified and unbearably boring compositions (Andrew York!... ahem). Hackett's compositions are consistent in sounding authentically classical while also adding touches of contemporary styles that make his music stand out above most others' music, making Steve Hackett among the best contemporary classical composers around today.
