4 stars This new album has been done with a collaboration of many musicians around the world and with a lot of instruments including sitar, tabla, harmonica etc. It was recorded in different places and it's really a prog rock album of a guitar player with many elements of world music, It still maintains the Hackett identity, which has never been far away in the past years from the world music. We can hear influences from his past solos albums and his love for classical music and the flamenco guitar. The music is based around the Hackett guitar playing with many solos, and his supported by classical arrangements. The song covers a lot of different atmospheres from cinematic, eastern music, ballad, etc. I really enjoyed the drums parts on the instrumental "El Nino", the beautiful melodies in the last two songs, and the opener "Behind the Smoke" with his mix of classical arrangments and world music tones which set the table for what's coming next.

There's a message on this album for the acceptance of our cultural differences in this dark times, and if there's someone that can understand this is the man who has been around the world a lot (thanks to his wife) and can share his message the best way he can be by his music.
