3 stars Still going strong.

Steve Hackett is one of the veterans in the scene. It seems he is not interested in just hanging around, living of the plaudits he receive for Firth Of Fifth and his other Genesis contributions. Not to mention his previous work. Hence this album. An album that is wide in it's scope.

Fans and admirers of Steve Hackett knows what they get on this album. An album where his guitar is lighing up the heaven with some stunning displays. But Steve Hackett has never been "merely" a guitarist. He has always composed music in the crossroads between classical music and rock. This album follows that formula (again). Some of the music here is guitar orientated. Some music is orchestral classical new age music.

My gripe here is the lack of any great tunes. But this is still a very good album which I am sure will grow on me over time. But for the moment.........

3.5 stars
