I've always been a Hackett fan....so there´s no knocking down here, despite the fact that many a reviewer found this record a bit on the down side. At long last this has surfaced (it was recorded in 1986) after much delay and contractual difficulties...it is a GTR-period Hackett thing..and it is (OK OK) more on the pop side than his other outings....but with people like: Pete Trevavas, Brian May, Ian Moseley, Chris Thompson..amongst others..it cant be all bad now can it??"Stadiums of the damned" are one superb track in the real-Hackett style!! Wonderful!! "Cassandra"..is another great track..it was actually on the: Guitar Noir- album...as a bonus track..including dual guitars of Hackett and May. Track 5 are kind of a blues tune...not least...thanks to the harp intro!!#6 are a ballad with the fantastic voice of Mr. Thompson (he of Earth band fame)...good track. #7 is Hackett at his absolute acoustic best!! Beautiful!!! Last track "The Gulf" is another "real" Hackett tune....nice guitar Steve!! Plus there are MP3 track on this release!! Hackett fan? Collectors special ? Certainly, now go get it!!
