4 stars Ecclectic and even a little esoteric, but so what? I admit that it doesn't necessarily hang together as a proper album, but there sure are some very fine musical selections to be found here. My favorites being Tibetan Yak Music, Tregenna Afternoons, and the powerful and evocative grand piano solo, Autumnal. That song really captures the fury and eventual sad dissipation of the warm, sunny days of summer. My biggest complaint about PP&P is its production quality - something that dogged Genesis in their early years too. For sure this is not ANT's best outing, but it is the first in a very long line of Private Parts & Pieces albums. True to its title, the music is very private and personal, and sometimes you just get pieces of a wonderful song. As such, I usually play this album when I am alone and want to be with my thoughts. It helps me to think and to feel, contrary to what Gerald Bostock asserts. This would make a nice addition to your CD collection.
