4 stars I'm afraid I very much disagree with the previous members review of thIs album.

To me, this is a body of work that is up there with classics like Spectral Mornings and Please Don't Touch.

From the atmospheric Loch Lomond to the spine-tingling The Phoenix Flown and the heart-warming Prairie Angel/A Place Called Freedom (OMG the flute along with the harmonies on the fade out is ecstatic and just completes perfection).

Waking to Life and Two Faces of Cairo (some of the chord changes here are nothing short of left-field but just so darned right for the track).

The grower on the album is Turn This Island Earth. I didn't like it that much on first listening but, after numerous plays I now most definitely 'get the vide man!'

The album just illustrates how Steve 'feels' music with his ethereal virtuosity.

As a frustrated songwriter, I would give my right arm (I'm left-handed you see he he) for an ounce of his golden, no, platinum talent.

Steve, for as long as you love writing and playing, I'll love listening.
