Steve Hackett - To Watch The Storms mp3 flac

To Watch the Storms is the 16th studio album by Steve Hackett. It was his first studio album in 4 years since Darktown in 1999. It was recorded with his then touring band including his brother John and producer and keyboardist Roger King. It shows Steve's compositional trademark which gave his earlier classics, Voyage of the Acolyte and Spectral Mornings grace. Cover artwork was by Kim Poor.

To Watch The Storms" is the first Steve HACKETT album in four years. Although that seems like a long time between albums, it is not hard to imagine how quickly the years could fly by when you are involved with a multitude of projects such as HACKETT. The new CD features HACKETT playing extraordinary guitar as well as numerous other instruments like the Rain Stick and Koto, which are not your common everyday instruments that come into play when recording a rock album.

So the release of To Watch the Storms was surrounded by a lot of expectations from fans and they shouldn't be disappointed. This is a wonderful record, full of touching, intelligent songs, stellar guitar playing, and great production. It continues in the same direction Hackett has been pursuing since Guitar Noir, a blend of mature songwriting, thoughtful arrangements, and odd rock numbers with progressive rock elements. Nothing needs to be taken out of this album. Circus of Becoming" adds another example of Hackett's infatuation with quirky circus-sounding tunes, but this.
