I have long admired Steve Hackett's studio work and have also enjoyed a lot of his live material. I particularly enjoyed "The Tokyo Tapes" from the late 90's. Of his recent work, "Out of the Tunnel's Mouth" blew me away and the very personal edge to many of the songs on that album gave it such an intensity. Like a good wine he just improves with age. "Live Rails" is a triumph. What I really like is the way Hackett gathers to himself such great musicians that provide him with a capacity to put over such great songs and instrumentals of such quality. I am really enjoying this album and like all of Hackett's work I know that I will revisit this many times in the future with great pleasure. Buy this album, you will enjoy it. Good one Steve.

An impressive live document showcasing most of the material (6 of the 8 tracks) from OUT OF THE TUNNEL'S MOUTH by Hackett and his crack band. My personal feeling is OotTM was his finest release in 30 years so hearing it essentially performed live within months of its release is fine by me. Given Hackett's lengthy body of work one gets a clear indication of what the most meaningful/influential periods from his past are; If I'm not reading too much into it, that would be mid-'70s Genesis and SPECTRAL MORNINGS('79) and DEFECTOR('80) from his vast solo canon. LIVE RAILS includes five Genesis (1973-76) cuts as well as five more from those two solo albums. Here is a premier guitarist redefining (perhaps even rediscovering) what it means to be in one's prime, backed by an extremely talented group, many of whom have honed their skills with Hackett for a few years. Nick Beggs (Iona) seems to have settled in as this band's bassist with his hard-driving and intricate playing. Drummer Gary O'Toole also handles vocals on the Genesis tracks (sound familiar?) "Blood on the Rooftops," "Firth of Fifth" and "Broadway Melody" yet fully distinguishing himself from either of that other band's two lead singers. Keyboardist Roger King continues his role as Steve Hackett's right hand man.

Steve Hackett is not resting on his laurels. He is continually exploring new sounds thus expanding his comfort level. Given the resounding success of the follow-up BEYOND THE SHROUDED HORIZON (2011), I submit, an artist on the upswing.

Steve Hackett fans already know what he's all about. However, if you're generally a rock music fan but somehow unfamiliar with this man please get LIVE RAILS and OUT OF THE TUNNEL'S MOUTH and BEYOND THE SHROUDED HORIZON and just concentrate on the songs, the guitar playing.

Steve Hackett goes from strength to strength. I saw this work while it was being performed on tour in the UK. The band is tight and the tracks form a retrospective of his work over the years. How he keeps producing such fine work year after year is amazing and long may it continue.
