5 stars I love this CD. I love it! I am an Anthony Phillips fan, but most of his music that I own is from the 1970's and early 80's. So, I'm sitting in my little cubical at work and this really cool chick who works one over from me starts playing this CD. Sometimes we discuss music. Some of our tastes are the same, some are very divergent. Well, after about 5 minutes of this album, I say over the wall, "This is really good, who is it?". She says "Anthony Phillips" - I was floored. She went way up in cool points with me. Well, that got us talking about the ANT. Also, I had to have this album right away. Her copy was played endlessly until mine arrived. I've had it now for about 3 weeks and it hasn't left my CD player. It is sooo wonderful. I wasn't even sure that he was still making music, but boy am I glad he is. In many ways this reminds me of The Geese and the Ghost, except without all the other orchestration. It is a double-album of Ant palying his heart out on various guitars. The one omission, if I can be so presumptuous, is that there is no electric guitar. That in no way makes it a weaker album. I guess I am just curious to hear what he would do with an electric guitar, with all the effects and possibilites that it presents. What he does on accoustic guitars is nothing short of magic. Magic I tell you. If you buy this, you will hear one of the original masters at the top of his game.
