4 stars Steve Hackett really gets his solo career going with this release. The guests featured, the variations in musical genres and the beautiful Hackett guitar performance on Please Don't Touch made this album the most unique in Steve's discography. "Narnia", "Kim" (a beautiful instrumental love song) and "How Can I?" are the first highlights on the album. Then it's the start of something really special and it starts with "Hoping Love Will Last" (a sweet song with a very good performance from a guest female vocalist) followed by "Land Of A Thousand Autumns", a fabulous passage that leads to one very impredictable song; "Please Don't Touch", one of the most intense song in Steve's repertoire. "The Voice Of Necam" seems to be another passage between two great songs but it also as a small gentle guitar part. "Icarus Ascending" is dramatic, a good end to this masterpiece. I canno't recommend this to anyone in particular. Certainly not Genesis fans, this is so different from Genesis! But If you're open-minded and ready for something really different, you should add Please Don't Touch to your wishlist!
