3 stars Steve Hackett was one of my favorites in Genesis and his solo works has never let me down either. His first three solo albums "Voyage Of The Acolyte", "Please Don't Touch" and "Spectral Mornings" together with "Till We Have Faces" are all favorites in my record collection. His previous album "Darktown" never reached my collection, but I have heard it and it wasn't bad at all.

The new album "To Watch The Storms" is even better than "Darktown", especially the masterpiece "Mechanical Bride" which is one of the better songs Steve has ever recorded. Other highlights are "Strutton Ground", "Circus of Becoming", "The Devil Is An Englishman", "Wind, Sand, and Stars" and "Serpentine Song". He still has a lot of the Genesis sound in his music, but updated and more modern.

This is for sure one of the better albums ever from Steve Hackett, and I suggest you buy it immediately.
