3 stars There are times when you want something blazing out of the speakers, and others, like me this evening, when you just want to sit back, admire supreme musicianship, and let an ambient mood wash over you.

Phillips has released a number of these Private Parts & Pieces albums, and, I suppose, the only connection between any of them is that they show him at his experimental best, messing about, if you will, with different soundscapes.

Synths are very prominent here, together with his trademark acoustic & classical guitar work.

This album will not have you running out of the bed screaming madly. Actually, it is more likely to put you into bed in a mellow mood! And that is the point. This is one of those albums designed to make you relax, come down, and marvel at the beauty of it all.

Three stars. It is not essential, but if you are interested in expanding the collection of the former Genesis man, you could do worse than start here.
