In 1983, Steve Hackett fought an uphill battle for the release of Bay of Kings, his first album of solo acoustic guitar pieces. He ultimately did find a distributor, after several months. Rather than becoming disconcerted by the experience, Hackett determined never to shy away from his classical impulses in the future, and in 1987 he returned with Momentum, another album of mostly original acoustic guitar passages. As the title suggests, this album finds Hackett gaining confidence and proficiency in his guitar playing; he manages to play several complex pieces in a seemingly effortless manner. The songs are pleasant, evoking delightful imagery.
