Review of Beyond the Shrouded Horizon by Sequenza21 - January 12

Guitarist Steve Hackett may be best known for his work with early Genesis in the 1970s and participation in the 80s rock super group GTR, in which he played alongside Yes guitarist Steve Howe. But for over thirty years, he has had a distinguished solo career, releasing a number of exquisitely wrought recordings with a variety of collaborators...

Almost two years already since the independant release of Steve's previous album, "Out of the Tunnel's Mouth" (which was to be re-released a few months later by InsideOut Music in an enhanced version with a bonus CD).

Review of Beyond the Shrouded Horizon by Metal Believe - October 11

More...

Review of Beyond the Shrouded Horizon by Prog Archives - October 11

A new release by Steve Hackett is always an important event. By far the most prolific, and I think, most consistent of the former Genesis members, the fact that he can still release visionary and relevant music in 2011, and on his 24th solo release, is testament to his talent...

Review of OOTTM by The Evil Jam - November 10

From the moment you listen to the album, the amount of changes from an Electric six string guitar to an Acoustic six string, subsequently morphing into a 12 string - all within the same song Ð is staggering. Steve also couldn't resist throwing in some backwards guitar and an electric sitar on the album as well...

Review of Bilston Robin 2 show by Midlands Rocks - December 10

Since the release of his acclaimed 'Out Of The Tunnel's Mouth' album, Steve Hackett seems to have enjoyed something of an enhanced public profile, and like his previous visit in 2009, this gig attracted one of the bigger crowds I can remember seeing at the Robin, even matching the packed house that Steve Lukather had pulled in ten days before...
