New album from legendary Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett, released very recently on October of last year. The most relevant thing that everyone would feel very pleased is concerning some of his collaborating musicians in this new act: Chris Squire (from Yes) and Anthony Phillips (early Genesis guitarist). As usual, his brother John has his guest appearance performing flute in some of the tracks of this bewitching new recording. I haven't bought it yet, but personally I will, as soon as I can afford some cash for the shopping deal. My first impression, if I dare to guess, seems very promising, but I'll try to tell you finally what I think of it, once my real copy is in my hands.
It's also available as a 256Kbps, DRM free, MP3 download at Hackett's shopping center. So, you won't be waiting so long for this. :P
Also, it's avalilable for listening from Spotify.
Date release: October 2009.
