4 stars Spectral Mornings sees Steve Hackett take another big step as a solo artist and especially as a solo composer. He put together a band to record and tour with, rather than using a plethora of guest and studio musicians. This makes for a much more cohesive album than its predecessor, "Please Don't Touch!", which seems disjointed at times. "Spectral Mornings" is still rich with different styles of music but the compositions flow much better, both within themselves and from song to song.

Final Analysis: Hackett continues to develop his always excellent guitar skills (both electric and accoustic/classical), while at the same time delivering well executed compositions full of melody, feeling, and a bit of humor.

Highlights: "Lost Time in Cordoba", "Spectral Mornings"

Rating: 4.5 Stars
