4 stars For those like me who are "Mega" HACKETT fans may I strongly recommend "DarkTown", Steve's new release. Not unlike all of HACKETT's other release you will find smartly crafted songs put to some of the tastiest guitar playing around. "Darktown" marks yet another major milestone in Steve's musical explorations, this time bring joined by guest Ian McDonald who adds some lovely sax playing and comrade Julian Colbeck (keyboards). "Darktown" is surrounded by many animated-like accents including ominous narration and background sound effects. As the title would suggest the album is dark in nature with atmospheric landscapes and loads of minor chords. "Darktown" also features a few numbers with the ol' mellotron including the standout instrumental number "Twice Around The Sun". Most of the vocal parts are handled by Steve with a guest appearance by Scotland's Jim Diamond.
