5 stars Doin' the Foxtrot since 1971 and Hackett raises the notch again!

With the new found groove that Steve Hackett has maintained over his last 4 solo albums, it's no surprise that this is one of his best albums to date. It seems finally he has progressed passed the mundane that some of his older albums possessed and transformed this one into something magical. It's different, in that it feels like you're embarking on a journey when you hit the 'play' button.

In many ways it is similar to Out of the Tunnel's Mouth, but improved upon in every detail. The songs flow into each other and there are hardly any bad moments (none that I can remember after 3 listens). Of course, with a Hackett album, you can expect some soft melodic songs, which never drag on before his guitar riffs back in; each are strategically placed and only build to the continuity of the music.

Is it possible that Steve Hackett has not reached his peak yet?

I think it is.
