4 stars What a pleasure to hear some of those classics with a new breath of life attached, though some of the vocalists perhaps leave a little to be desired' The fact that modern technology has delivered this take on the originals should be the overriding factor and it does produce in spades.

Additionally the inclusion of some of Hackett's solo projects getting the 'modern' treatment is a great bonus ' but where is 'Spectral Mornings'? But each to their own I suppose ' everyone will have some missing gem'

And is it really sixteen years since that last outing?

With twenty one tracks and the inclusion of 'Supper Ready' that have been set in such a way that the listener is taken on an epic journey; from 'Nursery Cryme' through to 'Wind and Wuthering' with the added solo material. I believe it would be unfair to single out favourites as this would differ from other followers' viewpoints, however most of the tracks have benefited from the 'update' and serve as a beacon (hopefully) for the current generation to aspire to, equally it will allow aforesaid generation to see what all the fuss was all those years ago.

But for those undecided about this venture, clear those preconceptions and enjoy what is arguably Hackett's best outing in many years.

An emphatic 4 star rating.
