Steve Hackett: Premonitions: The Charisma Recordings 1975-1983

Album Review

Former Genesis man gets a lavish retrospective.

Famously, the classified ad placed by Steve Hackett that led to him joining Genesis in 1970 sought a band to “strive beyond existing, stagnant musical forms”. He certainly helped to define the then-emerging form of prog rock and if it’s stretching a point to consider his solo career as cutting edge, its longevity demonstrates the facile nature of fashion and the unimportance of media popularity.
