Purchased as a down load this review covers only the first CD. I am EXTREMELY disappointed that I missed seeing the down load that had both CDs on it. My bad.

"More of the same" with Steve Hackett is a good thing! "More of the same" means a tremendous variety of virtuoso performances by a musician who is only getting better with age. While many seem to get complacent, Steve continues to push himself, experiment with varied musical styles and add finesse and refinement to his virtuoso guitar playing after over 40 years of plying his trade.

"Beyond the Shrouded Horizon" is probably the most appealing Steve Hackett album I had the pleasure of listening to in the past decade. (and I have listened to them all) Steve Hackett will generally garner four star ratings from me but in comparison with his other albums I must give BTSH five stars. I find myself just stopping, tuning everything else out, and just listening to it.

This album is epic in nature. NEVER boring. It blends seamlessly between strong electric guitar, electronic, acoustic,classical, and fully orchestrated numbers. Many of the songs blend into each other with no pause between tracks making some series of songs more like suites. Steve brings in Chris Squire (Yes) on base for several numbers and incorporates female vocalists on a couple of numbers. A wide variety of guest musicians (enhancing his normal band mates) keeps each song fresh and different. Songs range from rock, to blues, to ballads, to world beat. Orchestrations on some numbers make them rich but never overpowering. The final cut on the first CD "Turn This Island Earth" is nothing short of stunning! This CD, simply put, is marvelous!

Never bought a Steve Hackett album before? Start with this one.

As of course being a "Genesis head" dating back too long, I am always amazed at Steve Hackett. This man never stops. Playing,doing projects, forming new bands and now making a wonderful new
CD. This was well worth the wait. Textures,colours and the band is excellent! He is the only real "Genesis" person that is really trying to make that mark to be more known. In writing him and hearing his interviews via UK radio, he sounds like he really enjoys his life ,his music and now his new bride. The CD is totally fabulous! Its always how Hackett "lays out the tune" is amazing.
The hard textures down to the soft progression that you would miss if you were not listening closely. For people just discovering Steve Hackett. Go back and listen to "Ace of Wands",then maybe "Cured",then this one. My hat is to you my friend,well done on this new release! One note on listening to Hackett cd's. You have to listen to them much more than once to an over all "picture" of what Mr. Hackett creates . Just wonderful.......

As a long time fan of Steve Hackett, it seems to me that he is really expanding his talent as a guitarist and a song writer. This album has some wonderful moments, with some thundering rock tunes like Loch Lomond, and sweet acoustic numbers like Summers Breath. There is something here for just about every Hackett fan, as the breadth and reach of this album, which has been apparently issued with little fanfare (at least here in the states) is quite ambitious. Steve seems to be approaching this point of his life and musical career with passion and creativity - well done!

When I saw this new album and listened to the samples, I knew this was going to be a real gem of an album. If you're like me, it's rare to find an album that you fall in love with and can't stop listening to. Well, this is one of those albums. While I became a fan of Mr. Hackett during the GTR and Guitar Speak era, I became infactuated with his album "A Midsummer Night's Dream". His song writing is above reproach and guitar playing superb!

This album is glorious! From start to finish, he takes you on a journey around the Earth globe, introducing you to inspired sounds that he no doubt obtained from his many tours to lands far and wide. If you're new to Steve Hackett, this is an excellent album to sample his extraordinary talent. You'll hear wonderful classical sound transition into rock and world music sounds throughout; the music flow is just grand. If you're an old fan of Steve Hackett, don't wait to get this 2-CD album. It is FANTASTIC!

I can't dismiss any of the songs...I love it all. But if I had to highlight anything, it would be the first few songs of the first CD. 'Loch Lomond' is tremendous with a strong rock riff that interchanges with slow and captivating guitar work. 'The Phoenix Flown' displays Steve's wonderful guitarcraft...just GREAT! 'Prairie Angel' is rock anthem sound at its best, then leads into 'A Place Called Freedom' which just leaves me breathless every time I listen to it.

This is a GREAT album from a GREAT artist. One to truly treasure. Enjoy!

It's hard to even begin to convey how excellent this album is, except to say - simply awesome (I know that word is overused, but here it is definitely appropriate). As a musician/guitarist myself, I've always been a huge fan of Steve's playing, even though in his Genesis years, his playing was often decidedly understated and always under appreciated. But even as a young guitarist just starting out back in '74, I realized there was something special about his playing that really spoke to me musically, and I've considered him one of my main influences ever since (along with Gilmour, Clapton, Knopfler, Garcia, Ackerman and Howe).

For anyone not familiar with Steve Hackett's playing, IMO he has the melodic sensitivity and feel of a David Gilmour or Mark Knopfler, along with the technical prowess and speed of Alan Holdsworth's "shredding" or Robert Fripp's "tapping". Just an all around phenom on guitar, but without all of the unnecessary pomp and flash of many of his contemporaries. Every note he plays is purposeful and structured, and always adds to the overall phrasing and/or feel of the music at hand. He is also an accomplished classical guitarist, and often intertwines his classical influences with his hair raising electric work (mostly on what looks to be a customized Fernandes "Les Paul"). And while many of the other greats of his generation seam to be winding down and mellowing out, Hackett just seems to get better, stronger, faster, and more impressive with age. That goes for his playing and his songwriting.

I was recently talking to a fellow friend/guitarist about this CD and I told him, without any reservations, that it was probably one the finest pieces of music I've heard, in any genre, for well over twenty years.
