After many a delay (a skill probably learned from Peter Gabriel) Steve Hackett's newest 'rock' album is finally available. Out Of The Tunnels Mouth is currently being sold through Steve's website. This album is exciting for Prog fans because it contains performances from original Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips and Yes bass player extraordinaire Chris Squire. While such collaborations are not entirely unusual for world of Progressive Rock, these specific combinations are ones that I would have never thought would happen and could actually be quite interesting. This also marks the first Hackett solo album that I can remember not featuring a painting by Kim Poor as a cover. This probably has everything to do with the fact that the couple recently got divorced. I personally don't have enough money to purchase the album myself at the moment, but if somebody feels kindly enough to drop some change into the donate button I'll make sure a review is up as soon as possible.
The track listing is as follows:
Fire On the Moon
Emerald And Ash
Ghost In The Glass
Last Train To Istanbul
