4 stars Great great record, this made up for genesis splitting up in my opinion. Here Steve produces his best albums and what a great record it is. Every Day starts side one and sets the stage for some great action. "The Virgin and the Gypsy" another great track , that more than hints at the glory days of the Gabriel era genesis. " The Red Flower of Tachai Blooms Everywhere " Possible this one is not as strong but it has a real exotic feel. "Clocks (The Angel Of Mons)" Oh my this track is awesome, what a great feel, really excellent and powerful by far the best number on this excellent Set. "The Ballad Of The Decomposing Man (Featuring - The Office Party) " This numbers title is almost as long as the track but again this is corking stuff "Lost Time In Cordoba " Some nice acoustic guitar to gets side two off to a good start."Tigermoth " the other classic on this record is followed by the stunning "Spectral Mornings", great ending to a near perfect record. For this record Steve has assembled a band and this may well account for why it is so strong. There is a real sense of direction here and Steve is not scared to pull out the stops. This is my favorite post Gabriel era Genesis record by any of the band, and it remains a classic of prog rock. The great thing about Hackett is that he released at least Three great records, so if you like this one there are still others to follow it up with.
