Reviewed by Marc on 12 Feb 2019

Since the start of the new millenium, Steve Hackett has put out many excellent albums (this after a less prolific decade in the nineties). Two years ago we got In The Night Siren that had a large number of very good tracks, but was perhaps a bit varied in style to be considered a great Hackett album.

Two years later At The Edge Of Light has all the qualities his predescessor had (and more), and is much more focused. Because of that I would put this album in the Top 5 of Hackett's studio albums. Considering the number of records he has put out, and the fact he is now in his late sixties, this is saying a lot. In some ways At The Edge Of Light reminds me of Please Don't Touch, my favorite Steve Hackett album ever.

Certainly an early contender for my prog album of 2019.
