Former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett comes a live album recorded at Birmingham's Symphony Hall in 2017. Hackett embarked on a tour to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his former band's Wind & Wuthering record, which was also his last album with Genesis. Alongside his solo work, the performance features fan favorites from the album including "One for the Vine," "Eleventh Earl of Mar," and "Afterglow." Wuthering Nights: Live in Birmingham is available on DVD/CD, Blu-Ray, and digital platforms. ~ Bekki Bemrose

The material comprising the two discs of Genesis Revisited II ranges from 1971's Nursery Cryme to 1976's Wind & Wuthering, for which, fueled by nostalgia, guitarist Steve Hackett ambitiously attempted to re-create his favorite Genesis tracks. Helping Hackett with his 2012 vision, ten vocalists were recruited to cover the parts originally sung by Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel. While the femininity of Amanda Lehmann and husky voice of Opeth's Mikael Åkerfeldt change the songs significantly, others are perfectly suited, like Phil Collins' son Simon, who sounds nearly identical to his father. Obviously, these versions can't compete with the classics, but Hackett's technical skills are more astounding than ever and many additional details -- such as the replacement of Mellotron parts with a live orchestra -- are nice touches. ~ Jason Lymangrover

The Night Siren is the 25th studio album from British prog rock guitarist Steve Hackett and follows 2015's Wolflight. Taking inspiration from world music, the album sees Hackett joined by vocalists such as Kobi Farhi and Mira Awad to add another dimension to his progressive rock sound, while also introducing a variety of musical instruments from around the world, such as the sitar, tar, and Irish uilleann pipes. ~ Rich Wilson

The essence of progressive music is characterized perfectly on Voyage of the Acolyte, Steve Hackett's first solo album. The former Genesis guitarist uses his instrumental mastery to conjure up musical images of sorcerers, magic, and old English castles with the primary use of keyboards and electric guitar. Phil Collins on drums and vibraphone and Mike Rutherford on bass and fuzz 12-string contribute their talents to the churning synthesizers that accompany each passage. The basic instrumental elements of progressive rock are heard loud and clear throughout the album, including Mellotron, harmonium, flute, and bells, and none with a minor role to play. Collins, Hackett, and Sally Oldfield all donate their voices to a few of the songs here, adding a nice touch to the heavy insertion of electronics. Glimpses of oboe and cello can be detected underneath some pleasurable guitar work in "The Lovers and "Hands of the Priestess Part 1." Traces of Yes can be found all the way through the album, but especially on the 11:45 grand finale "Shadow of the Hierophant" that combines all the instruments in a colorful bombardment of musical fury. A true progressive masterpiece, Voyage of the Acolyte is an album firmly stationed in the upper echelon of prog rock. ~ Mike DeGagne

At 61, Steve Hackett continues to fly the flag of early Genesis-style British progressive rock on his ambitious 2011 studio album, Beyond the Shrouded Horizon. He reminds listeners of his majestic approach to electric guitar playing at the outset on "Loch Lomond," and then alternates the heavy rock playing with delicate acoustic work, starting with the brief "Wanderlust," actually an introduction to the longer "Til These Eyes." Some of the songs have vocals with ethereal lyrics, on which Hackett's modest singing voice is supported by several others, including that of his brother, co-songwriter, and flute player John Hackett. A Middle Eastern flavor is added on "Waking to Life" (with guitarist Amanda Lehmann on vocals), while "Looking for Fantasy" has a stately, classical feel, with Hackett contributing nylon-string guitar, leading into the Renaissance-styled "Summer's Breath." But "Catwalk," which follows, is one of the disc's more raucous rockers, and the nearly 12-minute "Turn This Island Earth" encapsulates many of the styles that have gone before. The album's first disc is accompanied by a second CD running just under 29 minutes that is more of a guitar showcase, with vocals only on a couple of tracks. Again, Hackett alternates full-on rockers with soft acoustic passages, even pausing in mid-disc for the classical piece "Pieds en l'Air," composed by Peter Warlock. The album ends with the martial rhythms of "Eruption: Tommy" and another shredding extravaganza, "Reconditioned Nightmare." The guitarist remains at the peak of his powers, and if listeners have heard much of this kind of thing before, they are not likely to be disappointed by hearing more of it. [Beyond the Shrouded Horizon is also available in a release that includes only the first disc.] ~ William Ruhlmann

In a lengthy and prolific solo career dating back to the 1970s, Steve Hackett has dabbled in numerous musical styles ranging from blues to classical. But he seems to understand that his core audience, the people interested in buying tickets to see him perform in concert, sees him primarily as a progressive rock guitarist of the ‘70s and ‘80s. At least, that seems clear from this double-disc live set, in which he fronts a band and pleases his listeners by delving deeply into his catalog of most popular recordings. That includes selections from his early solo albums such as Voyage of the Acolyte ("Ace of Wands"), Spectral Mornings ("Every Day," "Spectral Mornings," "Clocks"), and Defector ("The Steppes," "Slogans"). It also includes, on the second disc, a healthy selection from his tenure with Genesis, such as Selling England by the Pound ("Firth of Fifth"), A Trick of the Tail ("Los Endos"), and Wind & Wuthering ("Blood on the Rooftops"), with even a bit of The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway thrown in. Hackett has found ways to make up for his modest singing voice, notably beefing it up with vocal harmonies and backup singing. But his fans don't come to hear him sing. They come to hear him shred, as he does on showcase numbers like "Tubehead." They also come to luxuriate in the majestic, complex rock arrangements that evoke England in the 1970s, and they have much to enjoy here from a veteran in his sixties who is happy to accommodate them. ~ William Ruhlmann
