More information: Steve Hackett has never been tied to conventions. If you have followed his distinguished career, then the music has always been assertive, challenging and restive. But, even for those who have been devotees of Hackett's craft and catalogue 'Wolflight' is a little different. “Ever since I got involved with the music business, I have wanted to make this album, to break the rules”. And that's exactly what Steve Hackett has done here. Not only is there a strong rock idiom involved, as one might expect, but he has also brought in so many other elements, showing how contrasting pulses and rhythms can be used to expand horizons. “It's got a rock band, an orchestra, animals. There's world music, folk. It's pan-genre, and no genre outstays its welcome. This whole album is inspired by those ancient tribes who helped to shape Europe, in fact the world as we know it. There's certainly an ancestral thread running throughout. “For me, it's about opposites complementing each other.”
