4 stars He is the king of the 12 string acoustic guitar! On this record, he put some color to his guitar parts, adding many floating keyboards strings, good bass and sequenced drums (drumbox). "Earth Man" is so relaxing with its 12-string guitar and the loud floating strings of keyboards. One of his best of the "Private Parts & Pieces" series.

We feel here that Anthony PHILLIPS has some talent to make New Age albums, like his wonderful "1984".

3 stars On this fourth leg of his « Private Parts », Anthony is surrounded by a couple of artist which are not providing lots of support, I'm afraid.

Still, this album is varied and offers some nice keyboards parts which convey a definite symphonic atmosphere to the whole. But this is album is vastly dominated by the acoustic guitar; which has not always been the case with Anthony (remember "1984").

Most of his eighties production will be dedicated to these "Private Parts". Some are much better than others (my fave by far is the second one). I guess that it might be better for the casual fan to grab "Harvest Of The Year" which is a compilation of the first four ones than to investigate in each of them. At least I feel so.

Three stars for this fourth one because it is at times poignant but it usually lacks in great pieces of music.

2 stars Earth man

The fourth entry in Anthony Phillips' Private Parts & Pieces-series is a bit more towards New-Age territory compared to its more or less purely Classical predecessor. The sound is still mostly dominated by acoustic guitars, but this time there are also some synthesisers and drum machines co-existing with Ant's typical acoustic guitar playing which makes the whole thing a bit more varied instrumentally. The track Earth Man even goes all the way towards purely electronic music, bringing to mind the works of Vangelis. Bouncer is in a higher tempo than most tunes in the Private Parts & Pieces-series and is another decent number. The almost 11 minute Dawn Over The Lake is however a tedious and overly long piece.

Like most albums in the series, Private Parts & Pieces IV: A Catch At The Tables is almost completely instrumental. There is however one vocal number in Sistine.

Overall, this is a decent collection of mostly relaxing tunes that I find moderately enjoyable even if some passages are downright boring. I prefer this album over the first Private Parts & Pieces album as well as over Private Parts & Pieces III: Antiques, but it is still inferior to Private Parts & Pieces II: Back To The Pavilion.

Recommended only for fans and collectors of Anthony Phillips in general and the Private Parts & Pieces- series in particular
