Peter Critchley Evocative, sophisticated and beautifully crafted music – Campbell plays classical guitar with his consummate musicianship. These pieces are a testament to Neil’s originality and intelligence as well as his technical brilliance. The result is an understated masterpiece that draws the listener in and holds the attention from first to last. The album showcases Neil’s impeccable classical guitar skills wonderfully well. Acoustic bliss. Wonderful compositions beautifully played. Favorite track: Dreams Combine Like Shadows.

This album is a re-release of the 2003 recording 'Through the Looking Glass' - music for solo guitar composed and performed by Neil Campbell.

Neil has worked closely with Andy Fernihough, the engineer of the original recording, to produce brighter fresher remixes/remasters of the twelve original tracks (which include live favourites ‘Solid Ground’, ‘Methods of Escape’ and ‘Delay Tactics’).

It also features an additional 20+ minutes of previously unreleased compositions for solo guitar. The extra eight tracks include live favourites ‘In and Out of Day and Out in Into Night’ and ‘Terra Firma’.


"12 tracks of solo guitar brilliance that creep upon you slowly...Like the seminal Tubular Bells, it's one of those albums which sets a mood of quiet introspection, occasionally bursting into something more animated"
Philip Key, Liverpool Daily Post.

"music that not only covers beauty and charm, but moves effortlessly into darker and more emotional areas...I suppose if we threw Paco de Lucia, Segovia, John Williams, Gordon Giltrap and perhaps a dash of Martin Taylor into a melting pot we might get out a Neil Campbell...",
Bob Mulvey, Dutch Progressive Rock Pages.
