The new original material composed by Steve Hackett on "Out of the Tunnels Mouth" is good, solid Hackett, at the peak of his formidable technique. I especially enjoyed "Emerald and Ash", with beautiful harmonic 12 string accompaniment from Anthony Phillips. Not every track is as memorable, but an enjoyable effort nevertheless. It is an album that grows on you over time. If you enjoyed "To Watch the Storms", you will probably find much to like in this album.

The second disc contains live material from the 2009 tour in Italy, which are mostly Genesis tracks. Genesis purists may not think percussionist Gary O'Toole's vocals do justice to such tracks as "Blood on the Rooftops", but if you have an open mind, it can be a nice visit to a lost era.

I had read several cautiously positive reviews of Steve Hackett's, Out of the Tunnel's Mouth, so my first listen was a bit of a surprise: it's a marvelously solid release. The songs play like a beautiful visit to Hackett's musical past, with hints of just about every period of his work. Tunnel's Mouth features a variety of sounds that span the gamut from sensitively-rendered classical/folk guitar to some of the most powerful rock to come from him in years. I found myself really feeling this album, not just hearing it, and consider this to be his most emotionally-charged release since Spectral Mornings.
Hackett's work doesn't reflect the times or follow musical trends, it is simply the product of his personal vision, and I can think of no other musician that has maintained that level of integrity for so long. This path hasn't endeared him to the masses, but I don't believe that was ever his goal. I can't imagine that any Steve Hackett fan would be anything but thrilled with this release.

I just got this CD yesterday, and honestly have only had a chance to track through about 2/3 of it. But I can already tell -- this is another Steve masterpiece. My favorite track so far is "Emerald and Ash" -- one of the most elegant songs (including a great title) about love and betrayal that I've ever come across. And it's not just in the lyrics -- it's in the arrangement itself: it starts with a beautiful, romantic intro, which then leads to the fisrt few verses of wonderful, double-edged lyrics. Then comes a powerful, angular electric instrumental section that rips to the core of "you betrayed me, you b$%^&tch!!" -- and then, the coolest thing, is that it once again ends with the hopeful, romantic theme from the beginning -- an optimist at heart! (and don't get me started on the exquisitely played and recorded 12-string part by Ant!). I don't pretend to know the Kim/Steve story, but how any woman could have walked out on a genius of this calibre is beyond imagining. Hackett is one of the last surviving progressive innovators of a vanishing generation. His instrumental chops just keep getting better, as do his songwriting and arranging skills. I've loved his work from "Nursery Cryme" onwards, and marvel at the breadth of his solo works over the years. As far as I'm concerned, he has only one fault (unfortunately, it's a BIG one): he seems to be blissfully unaware that there's a continent called America, where musicians actually tour, on occasion...!

I won't say too much, but I am a Hackett completist. I have to buy anything he comes out with. The odd thing is; Steve rarely comes out with a thoroughly satisfying record. This one is about as close as it's going to get. The guitar playing is stellar throughout (even more so than usual). The writing is better than usual. I think Steve is in a very good part of his career right now. Maybe he's better off without Kim??

This will be short. Even though I've never been a big Genesis fan I've always like Steve Hackett's playing. I have quite a few of his albums and they always continue to entertain with the music and craftsmanship involved with that and also with the surprises all the albums contain. This is no exception. Another point I feel should be stressed is the fact that although Mr. Hackett is getting a bit long in the tooth his playing doesn't seem to have suffered any technical rifts. I've noticed with many players in the "rock" or "prog rock" genres their skills tend to leave them a bit as they age. The fingers just don't move with as much dexterity. I don't find this to be the case with OUT OF THE TUNNEL'S MOUTH. To my ears this is an interesting, fresh, stylistically eclectic album from a player still operating at the height of his powers. I feel very comfortable recommending it to anyone.

Steve's most recent album is only eight tracks long. Two tracks are almost at the 9 minute mark, quite a change from his last couple of albums. Each of these tracks have a myriad of ideas, and often go from delicate classical guitar, to all out rock.

My favourite two tracks are the first one:- 'Fire on the moon' is a beautiful ballad verse with an almost lullaby arpeggiated pattern and Steve singing in the lower register of his voice. The chorus is almost ethereal, it is magical. The chords are excellent. Follows an excellent electric guitar solo, full of emotion, reprised at the end of the song, before the arpeggios return, with a slightly atonal ending, suggesting angst perhaps. This is one of those tracks that you cannot believe is over 6 minutes long. It is worth every second. Classic prog rock. (10/10)

My next favourite track is the third one. 'Emerald and Ash'. I cannot explain in words how exceptional this track is. Listen to the wonderful opening with alto sax and orchestral response. Wonderful verse melody, reminds me a bit of another of Hackett's brilliant songs 'The serpentine song'. The 'dressed in velvet...' passage is simply sublime. Beautiful acoustic guitars and a wonderful melody. Simply breathtakingly brilliant. This, as with the first three tracks, moves into a harder rock passage, a fantastic electric guitar solo with chunking bass, towards the end, before reprising the classical arrangement. (10/10)

'Nomads' begins in the classical/maybe folk guitar vein, before moving into a beautiful ballad, awash with multi tracked guitars. Very spanish sounding, flamenco style, with castanets in the background. I love the harmony vocals in the choruses.
