I think Howe's playing, writing and tone are best on...

TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS

RELAYER

I'm not always 100% crazy about everything Howe plays, but I think on Tales and Relayer he is 100% dead on with everything he does. Briliant!

Hey, Norm - thanks for resurrecting this thread!

I can't even THINK of anything Steve's done where I didn't think the guitar playing was fabulous! I'd be hard pressed to pick just one that's his "best" . . . HE'S the best!

That said, a personal favorite of mine is his work on Turn of the Century - it's so clean and poignant . . . brings tears most every time . . . :)

I think Tales is his finest and most concise achievement in terms of musicianship, depth, timbre and inventiveness.
Steve's work has always been about the dance between light and darkness and everything that comes in between. I realize that TFTO is a bit of a departure from the rhythmic style and palette employed on both Fragile and CTTE, but that is precisely what grabs me with his Tales work, it's more organic, out-of-the box and even in the softer quieter moments he still manages to convey a lot of drama and tension. You get the powerhouse, bitting guitar punch as well as the classical-infused arpeggios and oneiric lap-steel fills. It's a massive work of unparalleled beauty and enthralling force.
