4 stars Steve Hacketts is my favourite solo artist not just in prog but in all genres, he offers diversity on all his albums that really does deliver something for everyone, voyage of the acolyte through to spectral mornings his music kept getting better and better and in this album Defector we see another fantastic effort. This album is every bit as good as spectral mornings with his songwriting abilities improving, a segment of the album dedicated to the classic nylon guitar solo pieces we associate so much with steve which are every bit as impressive as they are beautiful. The albums opener The Steppes is a typical powerful Hackett instrumental similar to Please Don't Touch and Clocks. This album really has something for everybody whether it be symphonic prog, rock songs, acoustic guitar or jazz fusion guitar tracks, Defector is one of Steves finest offerings and a must have.
