3 stars The second Private Parts and Pieces collection suffers from a lack of focus - only to be expected considering that it's a grab-bag of bits of music assembled for other projects. The highlights of the album are the epic Scottish Suite, representing some of Phillip's most aggressive and spooky progressive rock composition, and K2, a dreamy new age synthesiser piece. The remaining tracks, however, whilst often pretty are also a bit of a mixed bag - there's some rejects from Wise After the Event which aren't that much better than the pieces that made it onto the album, some classical guitar and piano pieces which seem more like first drafts than finished works, and a lot of forgettable material. A mixed bag, then.
Warthur | 3/5 |
