Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Life Within A Day (Audio CD)
When i first received my copy of Life within a day i played it 5 times in a row.
We have something special here...
In a nut shell, Chris Squire has entrusted his superb writing to the established in-house skills of Hackett and King, and the results when combined with Steve Hackett's own share of the material are outstandingly good.
Steve and Chris enhance each other very well. I don't know what brought this album together?
I suspect it may have been a meeting of personalities?
How ever it happened, each contributor is generous and mutually supportive in equal measure.
It sounds to me like these guys trust and respect each other and that gets us a 5 star album.
Squire and Hackett become Squakett very much thanks to the production/engineering/keyboard talent that is Roger King.
There is plenty of melody, harmony, great lyrics, fantastic playing, intricate and powerful instrumental sections.
Every track simply adds to the whole and there isn't a duff track to be heard.
When it ends you just want to put it on again.
An ever more rare experience these days when it comes to new albums...
