5 stars Probably my favorite of Steve's early albums. I think he really found his footing here with the rest of his band. It's a shame this lineup didn't record more albums. Vocally, Steve shines here. Although often not considered a great vocalist, he seems to do very well on this album. All the songs are incredible, and the musicianship is top notch. While Genesis was descending into pop mediocrity Steve was carrying the progressive torch. The music ranges from beautiful to dark, and always melodic. The atmosphere is also just right here. Definitley an essential Hackett album.
