3 stars With Steve Hackett being at the helm I thought i'd give this record a shot, and after many listens I have mixed feelings.The negatives for me are the vocals, I really like Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel's vocals, and so to hear Paul Carrack who I disliked a lot back in the eighties, and John Wetton, who I like, but not doing pop songs, was a real letdown. I prefered Steve's vocals to these two. I also am not a big fan of the orchestral sounds, especially when their sound is used where mellotron was originally used.

The highlight for me was the surprising instrumental "Valley Of The Kings" where Steve Hackett shows his stuff, and he's got a lot of stuff ! Amazing guitar ! "Firth Of Fifth" is also beautifully done.

This album is probably worth checking out for most prog fans, if only to see Hackett's interpretations of some great songs from his past.
