More information: “Lockdown cobwebs are blown away in one fell-swoop here. With the monster rhythm section of Jonas Reingold, Craig Blundell, Nick D’Virgilio and Phil Ehart along with Rob Townsend’s soaring sax and bass clarinet, Nad Sylvan, Amanda Lehmann and myself on vocals, Roger King’s darkly powerful organ and my guitar, we plunge full-pelt into that wild release of energy.” (Steve Hackett)
“Alongside the heaviness is that constant need to explore and blast through boundaries. This album travels around the world from the Far East to Africa, with the beautiful vocals of Amanda plus Lorelei and Durga McBroom, Ubaidulloev Sodikhorn’s extraordinary dutar and Malik Mansurov’s exotic tar… all bound together with Roger’s beautiful orchestral textures, highlighted by Christine Towsnend’s sublime violin and viola.” (Steve Hackett)
