    And I think 'To Watch The Storms' is excellent too. But I agree with you that it's ridiculous to say everyone sold out except for Hackett. I don't dislike the 80s and 90s output of Steve, Tony or...

    One can hope Jon Davison's 'harmony vocals' is extensive. A bad voice can make a well written song sound poorly written.

    Historically, on albums where he sings, some of the instrumentals are particularly good (eg Maiden Voyage, Nature of the Sea). So I'm hopeful for some gems on this one!
