3 stars Spectral Mornings is a solo album by Steve Hackett that I generally don't enjoy so much of. There are a few good tracks here and there, and are definitely great guitar showcases. I find this album suffering from the sounds of the '80s, which has always been a hinderer in the progressive rock world. Still, this music is far better and much more interesting and well composed than the music that Genesis would go on to make. Unfortunately, the only track on this album that really stuck out is the wonderful "Tigermoth" which is a classic and aggressive Hackett track, with some odd progressive touches.

Symphonic progressive rock fans and fans of Steve Hackett's electric works should find this to be a fantastic listen. I personally prefer his classical oriented albums.
