3 stars On this fourth leg of his Private Parts , Anthony is surrounded by a couple of artist which are not providing lots of support, I'm afraid.

Still, this album is varied and offers some nice keyboards parts which convey a definite symphonic atmosphere to the whole. But this is album is vastly dominated by the acoustic guitar; which has not always been the case with Anthony (remember "1984").

Most of his eighties production will be dedicated to these "Private Parts". Some are much better than others (my fave by far is the second one). I guess that it might be better for the casual fan to grab "Harvest Of The Year" which is a compilation of the first four ones than to investigate in each of them. At least I feel so.

Three stars for this fourth one because it is at times poignant but it usually lacks in great pieces of music.
