Genre: Progressive Rock, Eclectic Prog | Label: Camino Records | Cat.: CAMDV15

Recorded live in concert on Steve's 1996 Genesis Revisited Tour of Japan, The Tokyo Tapes highlights some of Hackett's own solo material along side new interpretations of Genesis classics written while he was with the band. Unlike the 1999 Asian pressing of this DVD (called Steve Hackett & Friends - Live In Japan) on Panorama Music Video, the new Camino issue features 18 minutes of unreleased rehearsal footage. Hackett's line-up on this tour is among my favorites of his touring bands.

The album was compiled from two concerts at Koseinenkin Hall in Tokyo, Japan on 16 & 17 December 1996.

It appears that the former Genesis guitarist has reached the light at the end of the tunnel without major injuries. Steve Hackett's musical style tends to straddle the boarders of various musical genres and themes. All of these influences are uniquely mixed together and the end result is usually something that combines an assortment that may include anything from progressive rock, pop, folk, classical, blues, to even a hint of world music on occasion. At it's core, while Out of the Tunnel's Mouth is clearly a straight-up rock album, it draws heavily on elements of classical guitar, along with a few doses of progressive rock, and an overall melodic feel that works incredibly well. Special edition in a digipak with a six song bonus CD & deluxe extended booklet.

Some remember his past as an art rock / prog musician with Spectral Mornings and other great records – and sundry fine rock and prog side projects. Now he indulges in his love for classical music. On Feb 11 [2008] his Tribute to his guitar role models was published. On this album Steve Hackett plays nothing but nylon guitar. Pure acoustic guitar, as it were. Light acoustic guitar sounds lead the listener straightaway into the world of classical guitar music.

Wild Orchids is an art rock album released by Steve Hackett in 2006. It follows on from the success of the previous studio outings To Watch The Storms in 2003 and Metamorpheus in 2005. Steve Hackett proves once more that it is possible to flirt and experiment with new musical directions without losing one’s own profile. Some listeners may feel cowed by the plenty of styles and sounds on offer, while others may appreciate this boundlessness. With the oscillations between band and orchestral sounds and electronic and production experiments Wild Orchids may be the closest thing to realization of Hackett’s musical visions. When one listens to this album one feels that this is not just another album but perhaps the most ambitious offering of Hackett’s whole career. One has to listen carefully and closely.

Metamorpheus is Steve Hackett's classical album. This is the successor to A Midsummer Nights Dream. Metamorpheus is an expression on Orpheus and his passage through the Underworld. The use of the nylon guitar and the Underground Orchestra naturally gives a link between the small and big moments of this album.

The album features guest appearances by singer Bonnie Tyler, Queen guitarist Brian May and Marillion members Ian Mosley and Pete Trewavas.

Darktown is the 17th album of his solo career and the first since Guitar Noir (1993). Darktown was Hackett's first completely original rock album in five years and is, without question, the darkest and most ominous album of his career. The album is full of contrasts and this adds to the special flavor: There are light moments in the dark, fast and slow parts, rhythmic and floating music, warm-hearted and cold-blooded bits – let’s take a closer look.
