Steve Hackett - Guitar Noir (Viceroy) 1994
1. "Lost in Your Eyes"(4:11)
Steve Hackett sure can paint a beautiful picture with his guitar. This particular album tends to be less progressive than I remember much of his late 70's and 80's albums, but he is still a master of his instrument. Steve offers a one line commentary about each song with themes ranging from the life of a prostitute to the onslaught of television in the household to a tune about stolen pints of blood from a New Orlean's hospital. The thing is, however, that the subject matter is no where near as important or even as interesting as the music. Hackett is a great guitarist! I often wonder what Genesis would sound like if he were to reunite with them now that they are no longer under the pop-reign of Phil Collins. Hmm. I found this import in the Genesis discs at Circuit City for $4.99.
