5 stars And where did this come from???? Thirty years into his solo career ANT PHILLIPS comes up with one of his very best albums ever. He's on the opposite trajectory of his former band Genesis. As they continued to get unabshedly worse, Ant got better and better. Field Day is a delightful double album of Phillips playing a host of stringed instruments, all solos with no overdubs. He muses in the liner notes that it might seem like a lot to listen to. To that I say, NO, NO, NO.! As I write this I am listening to Oubliette, which is track 9 on the second disc. I have just replayed this song for the 3rd time in a row. It is too good. Heartbreaking and cosmic sounding - and all on acoustic guitar! Well, I could go down the list and describe each song, but there are 61 of them, so, most of them are short, but I'll save you and me a lot of time. Just go out and buy this future classic. It is the best of one of the very best musicians in Prog music.
