2 stars Dear Antony is quite mixing the genres with his «Private Parts». Gently acoustic with the first one, he mixed it with some great symphonic style for the second lap. The third leg is again totally acoustic and even if it denotes some musical skills (which is just normal), I have to admit that I am not impressed with this work.

This album is fully instrumental and there is almost no guest to support Anthony in this work (only one backup guitar player). I guess that there are people to appreciate this sort of album, but I don't belong to these ones.

I have had the same problem with several Hackett's works though. It's normal that these guys want to create something different while being on their own; but it is also normal to like this move quite moderately.

Some fine melody here and there, but that's not really enough to make this one a good album. In my books, only two stars are legitimate: I can't help. I do prefer while Anthony is surrounded by more of his prog friends.
