Wolflight (CD/Blu-ray Digipak)
Well Steve is done resucitating the Genesis catalogue and back to concentrating on fresh solo material. The new album Wolflight is a bit of a loose concept album and I find it to be one of his strongest releases in years. The album is filled with lots of guests (including Chris Squire) contributing exotic instruments to the mix adding an old world sound. Steve's trademark sound is locked into place so if you are looking for the wailing guitar, liquid runs and acoustic delicacy you won't be disappointed. His vocals has never been my favorite part of a Steve Hackett album but either I've mellowed in age or his voice has - not sure which. Regardless it fits the music just fine. Classic Hackett and nothing less. BUY OR DIE!
Please note this is the US edition that arrives in a digipak. Its a 2 disc set. Disc 1 is the standard CD. Disc 2 is actually a Blu-ray. Tontent includes hi-res stereo and 5.1 mix of the album, 2 bonus tracks not on the standard CD (in hi-res no less!), and extensive interview footage with Steve Hackett.
