4 stars Talk about a 1-2 punch. If this were a boxing match, you'd never have seen this coming. But what a combination. First, The Geese and the Ghost, and then this, Wise After the Event, his second solo effort. Not what people would have expected from Phillips. Nevertheless, it is a great treat. It is catchy, prog-ish, pop-ish, full-up band, complete songs, a working rhythm section. He brings great sessionmen on board for this far-reaching achievement, e.g., Mel Collins, Michael Giles, John G. Perry. The result is damn good music. While this is not the essence of AP, it is a side of him that I wish he would bring out a little more frequently. Not an all-time classic, but definately a great addition to any collection.
