Ex-Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett has stayed busy in the studio, releasing his second album of 2021. By and large a complete shift from January's classically-focused acoustic "Under the Mediterranean Sky," this new Surrender of Silence is an explosive blowing away of "lockdown cobwebs," as he puts it.
On Surrender of Silence, with his electric guitar firmly in hand, our protagonist is ready to Hackett to bits once again with blistering solos, lush arrangements and diverse songwriting. Supported by his regular partners in crime as of late — Roger King, Jonas Reingold, Christine & Rob Townsend and many others — Hackett offers fresh attack, dark themes and occasionally somewhat too-familiar approaches. The result is a healthy handful of standout tracks alongside a few pieces that tread the same terrain as his recent solo albums, even as the quality remains engagingly high throughout, writes Sonic Perspectives.
"With five decades of memorable music making and no signs of slowing down, Hackett continues to be a true Prog treasure." — Sonic Perspectives
