4 stars Momentum is a natural follow-on from the "Bay Of Kings" album and sees Steve exploring more textures than in his previous acoustic album. The mood varies quite considerably - from the child- like playfullness of "A Bed, a Chair and a Guitar", the up-tempo title track and finally to the almost heart-tearing melancholy of "The Vigil". In his playing, Steve seems to be very comfortable with this collection of instumentals. My personal favouite is "Last Rites Of Innocence" which gets me every time I listen to it. While Steve has earned his postion as one of the leading electric guitarists of our time (as important as many of the others like Dave Gilmour, Andy Summers and Robert Fripp), with this offering he really shines - a must for anyone who appreciates the subtle tones of the spanish guitar.
