4 stars One of the most intristing Steve Hackett albums from most recent times, full of great ideas and inventive passages, thet made him a true legend. To watch the storms from 2003 is among his best works , being little behind after his masterpiece Spectral mornings and in same place with Defector for ex. Some crimsonesque attitude on Mechanica bride with his unique guitar tone, one of his better pieces for sure. Another highlight is The Devil is an Englishman a cover of Thomas Dolby from the movie Gothic, with electro progressive beats here with some intristing lyrics, definetly , at least in my view better then original. The great instrumental Wind, Sand and Stars, one of the instrumental from the album, the other being The Moon Under Water, both being very well performed and with nice arrangements aswell. Steve Hackett is on bariccades here, and this album for sure is not disappointing at all. I really like this To watch the storms, the cover art aswell, quite intristing and dark as some of the pieces from the album, but in the end is a truly great album that desearves from me 4 stars. I like a lot that Steve Hackett is not only a great guitar player , but is a damn great composer and songwritter aswell, knowing to pull all the intristing passages for the listner and creating a good album in this field.
