STEVE THORNE Part Two: Emotional Creatures GEPCD1036/SPV(2007)

Steve Thorne

Follow-up to his excellent 2005 album and again it sees an impressive line-up of guest musicians including Tony Leven (Peter Gabriela/King Crimson), Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard), Asia's Geoff Downes, Marillion's Pete Trewavas, Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree), John Mitchell (It Bites/Arena/Kino), Martin Orford (IQ) and Gary Chandler (Jadis) amongst others.

I am happy to report Steve Thorne has done it again producing a superbly crafted album, full of thought provoking lyrics (he pulls no punches when targeting drugs, war and George Bush) and some stunning music. If I had to compare his work to anyone it would be Peter Gabriel or Fish, not in vocals but the attention to detail in the music and production.

Hard to pick highlights as it is all good but 'Wayward' and 'All The Wisemen' (includes great guitar work form John Mitchell) stand out, both of which show Thorne's lyrical and musical prowess. 'The White Dove Song' will appeal to Asia fans with its layered keys (courtesy of Geoff Downes) and classic Asia sound.

A very accessible album - don't be put off if you normally avoid progressive rock, as it is an album really worthy of hearing and I can't wait for his next release.
