Shadow of the Hierophant

The solo career of guiatrist Steve Hackett after leaving Genesis in the late seventies has been a bit of a mixed blessing to my taste. There's one original song that stands out for me: Shadow Of The Hierophant. I came across this amazing live rendition with Steve being assisted by Steven Wilson on guitar and Amanda Lehmann as vocalist. A beautiful version. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player).
