Voyage......the other Hackett albums aren't even close imo.

Acolyte...a continuation of the Genesis works of the early seventies and far better than anything genesis did after 1977.
Play me my song.....Here it comes again.......

Please donít Touch for me. I was never overly keen on Voyage of the acolyte although itís ok. Spectral mornings had some dodgy sound production, particularly on the title track. There were also too many filler tracks on that album although Iíve also always found that Hackett in general has always been something of a filler track specialist. At times quite a superb artist and at other times just a bit dodgy, contributions to Genesis notwithstanding

Defector is missing here, IMO peak of his early career. Out of these Spectral Mornings, followed by PDT. Debut sound uneven to me, Hackett seems he's still searching himself as a songwriter there. Would be also interesting to compare his latter albums, since Guitar Noir/Darktown until the recent one.

Voyage was ok, wish it were more really (until I heard the bonus material and wished the opposite).

Now whatever is said about the first issue production wise on Spectral does not apply on the remaster. Touch is fine but the title track of Spectral Mornings hits the spot... most effective solo Genesis moment for me I think.

Voyage makes me sleepy, but I did like Twin Towers. PDT seemed to scatterbrained but maybe I haven't digested it enuf. Spectral hit the spot as flowing great music!

Voyage by a longshot.
There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.
