Steve Hackett abandoned his plans for a career as a harmonica player when he joined Genesis in late 1971. With Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, he enjoyed phenomenal success, with 1973’s Selling England By The Pound and 1974’s concept album The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway gaining “Classic Album” status. Phil Collins moved from behind the drum ... Read more in Amazon's Steve Hackett Store

5.0 out of 5 stars More of the Same. How does he do it?! October 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steve keeps on going strong! September 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.......

4.0 out of 5 stars Renaissance September 27, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A resounding and solid 5 star effort December 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.
