To Steve Hackett, I will following his career from his beginnings in ‘Genesis’ and his subsequent career as a soloist. Contrary to what one might think Hackett is one of those artists-geniuses who have managed to reinvent themselves, risking his reputation after proposing and out of inertia, in short a very complete artist and honest. In one example: this great and unknown album ‘Bay of Kings’, which boasts its potential as a learned composer, accompanied by various guitars out of the electric field: acoustic guitar, classical guitar and various string guitars nylon in stereo.
If I start analyzing his music, jump to hear the influences of various composers for stringed instruments of all time. From Baroque, Renaissance, Impressionist and contemporary (little reminiscent of Eric Satie and Joaquín Rodrigo).
Album is a must for any fan of the great Steve Hackett.
