5 stars This is like a cross between classical music, medieval folk, pastoral music and prog rock. It is exceptionally well done. Anthony is joined here by many, not least of whom are Mike Rutherford, Phil Collins on a few tracks and Steve Hackett's brother (John) on flutes. Had Steve Hackett himself not have cut his hand with glass I'm sure he would have been along for the ride. I do wonder how Gabriel wasn't here on at least some of the vocals given his and Phillip's friendship. I also wonder why Banks wasn't here in some form but perhaps he was at home steaming quietly. This album is for people who appreciate good, fine, intricate music and for those with a classical music bent. Those who enjoy the Genesis "Trespass" album should find much to enjoy herein. I love the bonus track "Master of Time" on the Virgin release and it is interesting to compare this to Big Big Train's version. 5 stars for a very very good work of music.
