Hackett Revisted & New!

The Total Experience was recorded during the Acolyte to Wolflight Tour, which followed the Genesis Revisited Tour and also supported the newest album release Wolflight. Having purchased both live albums from the Genesis Revisited Tour (Live at the Royal Albert Hall and Live at the Hammersmith) I was not sure what this album could really add to the canon. But for the fan it is well worth picking up. First, there are 5 cuts from Wolflight: Out of Body, Wolflight, Love Song to a Vampire, the Wheel Turns and Loving Sea. (I very much wish that they had performed all of Corycian Fire!!!! But I'll settle for the into...). Second, this set include the Genesis classic Get 'Em Out By Friday, which did not appear on the previous two live albums. Third, the performances in honor of the 40th anniversary of Voyage of the Acolyte (Star of Sirius, Ace of Wands, A Tower Struck Down, Shadow of the Hierophant) are especially strong. Overall, a great moment to capture in the career of Steve Hackett, who continues to bring new life into classic songs while contributing excellent new material with each outing. Thanks, Steve & Co, for this fine album!
