Steve Hackett - Spectral Mornings/Please Don’t Touch/Defector DVD review

Album Review

Steve Hackett DVD reissues, now with Steven Wilson wizardry.

It might seem peculiar that classic albums are being remixed to attain ever-higher levels of sonic fidelity at the very same time as low-fidelity listening is increasingly the norm, but it shouldn’t surprise anyone when it’s Steven Wilson doing the grunt work. Prog’s go-to alchemist (there’s even a Facebook page devoted to his extracurricular work) has now worked his magic on three of Steve Hackett’s post-Genesis classics, providing new stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes for Spectral Mornings and Please Don’t Touch, plus a ‘pseudo’ 5.1 mix of Defector, as the original multitracks couldn’t be found.
