4 stars "Long ago with all the dreamers, I fell into her emerald spell."

Steve Hackett's been on a bit of roll when it comes to his progressive rock output in the past ten years or so, as well as making some fine classical oriented albums. Out Of The Tunnel's Mouth offers up a fine set of prog. To the extent that there is a theme here in the songs, it's about dreams. Roger King confesses in the liner notes that the album was constructed on a computer. But ultimately a quality outcome is dependent on the musicians. Steve's never been one to go it alone on his progressive rock albums and has many of the usual musical suspects working with him, some new names to me, and even Anthony Phillips and Chris Squire are guesting on a couple of tracks each.

An eclectic mix of mellow and heavier tracks. The only disappointment here for me is that a deluxe edition wasn't released.
