5 stars This cd is pretty much beyond beautiful. It is evident that Tony Banks has gained much confidence between his first orchestral cd, "Seven" (2004) and "Six" (2012). The magic of his earlier compositions with Genesis is here, in the dense details and emotive melodies. There is a haunting, and at the same time, pastoral quality to the music, even in the livelier pieces, such as "Blade" and "City of Gold". I'm reminded at times of a more complex "Forever Morning" (from "A Curious Feeling"), of course, orchestrated. Because this is an orchestrated album, it wont be for everyone, but for many of us, there will be a deep connection to this album, as it is unusually beautiful, and unusually poignant.
