4 stars This is a disk of piano pieces that picks up where PP&PP6 (Ivory Moon) left off. Easily two-thirds of the disk is WONDERFUL and was recorded at Ant's home studio in South London. The best (in my opinion!) selections are: Sad Ballerina, Final Lights, Fivers, Keepsake, Venetian Mystery, Scythia, The Oregon Trail, Gazebo, Fallen Flower, Hope of Ages and Obezag (a backwards piece--you figure out its root!). Many of these pieces are extremely visual. The real gem of this collection is a piece entitled Creation. Written by Ant in his early Genesis days (in his late teens!). It has strains of Debussy's Clair de Lune and is truly beautiful. I urge all to purchase this as well as any of Ant's back catalog.
