3 stars The first of a serie of ten albums (up to now) called private parts and pieces is mainly an acoustic instrumental effort of the former Genesis which is not too distant from the acoustic parts of the debut, but of course it lacks the symphonic parts.

There's a lot of guitar and piano. I can say that the whole album is made of guitar and piano. The ambient is typically Genesis, if you can imagine Genesis without Gabriel, Collins Banks and Rutherford.

If you are looking for a relaxing listen this is a good album. The parts (and pieces) of classical guitar are very nice. "Field Of Eternity" is an example.

Nothing impressive from a technical point of view, but this music is not made for impressing.

Between the many tracks of this album, "Tregenna Afternoons" is the one closer to The Geese and The Ghost. "Stranger" is the first with lyrics, but the only track that I still remember clearly of this album that I wasn't listening to since years is "Reaper". Its open chords on a 12-strings guitar sound very light.

Not an essential album, as almost all the serie, but a good one.
