Steve Hackett's "Hackett to Bits" was a simplified version of the title track from his Please Don't Touch album. It had no connection with the similarly titled "Hackett to Pieces" from Highly Strung. Asia later recorded their own version of the Downes-penned "The Hunter" for their 1997 compilation album Anthology. The group, founded by ex-Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett and then ex-Yes and ex-Asia guitarist Steve Howe, disbanded in 1987. Geoff Downes, another ex-Yes and ex-Asia member at the time, produced the album. When the Heart Rules the Mind" – 5:24 (Hackett, Howe). The Hunter" – 4:51 (Downes).

Steve Hackett's last release for Charisma Records in Britain is one of his strongest efforts. Hackett once again handles all the lead vocals, but sounds more assured in the role than he did on Cured. This album spawned Hackett's one and only solo hit single, "Cell 151," which charted in Britain. An extended version of "Cell 151" was released as a 12" single, and was later included on CD versions of Highly Strung.

1984: Till We Have Faces. Steve Hackett was never really noticed by the star-filled world of rock grands: due to his humble and quiet nature, he always appeared to be somewhat hiding behind the backs of other prog- and art-rock guitar greats like Steve Howe, Robin Trower, and Dave Gilmour, not to mention all the blues greats, etc. But turns out that from many points of view, the quiet and humble Hackett was the true guitar genius and a far more ambitious and daring exploiter and explorer of sounds than all of those flashy giants

'Highly Strung'' might be one of the best albums of the 80's; anyway that was my impression. It's a consistent mix of pop, rock and prog. It sounds more 'commercial' than ''Voyage of the Acolyte'' and ''Spectral Mornings'', what with that whole '80s production' thing and a few 'simple' songs. Although GTR is considered by many to be Steve Hackett's first truly commercial rock album, in many respects, Highly Strung is really his first foray into straight-ahead mainstream pop/rock.
