Darktown is the 14th studio album from British Musician Steve Hackett, released in 1999. It was reissued in 2013 with 3 bonus tracks. On some copies of this reissue, the title was mis-spelt as "Darktwon" on the sides of the CD case. Darktown is the last album to feature Julian Colbeck as a keyboardist, on the title track only. Colbeck had played with Hackett for much of the 1990s.

Steve Hackett ‎– Darktown. Label: Camino Records ‎– CAMCD17. Format: CD, Album, Slipcase. Country: UK & Europe. Bass – Roger KingGuitar, Harmonica, Narrator – Steve HackettKeyboards – Julian Colbeck, Roger KingSaxophone – Ian McDonald. Sounds – Ben Fenner, Richard Buckland, Roger King, Steve HackettVocals, Guitar, Thumb Piano, Rainstick, Twelve-String Guitar, Harmonica, Software Instrument – Steve Hackett.

Over the course of 25 years and nearly 20 solo releases, Steve Hackett has acquired a vast amount of technical proficiency in the studio. This album, which Hackett produced, is the best-sounding release of his career. Most of the 11 tracks are more like soundscapes or aural impressions, than songs in the conventional sense; this is not necessarily a bad thing. The tapestry of sounds on "The Golden Age of Steam" is perfectly suited to a rather intriguing lyric about a World War II child spy.

Tracklist: 1. Omega Metallicus, 2. Darktown, 3. Man Overboard, 4. The Golden Age Of Steam, 5. Days Of Long Ago, 6. Dreaming With Open Eyes, 7. Twice Around The Sun, 8. Rise Again, 9. Jane Austen’s Door, 10. Darktown Riot, 11. In Memoriam. 4. The Golden Age Of Steam.

The mood of this album is incredibly dark and gloomy, trudging along at a funeral-march pace whilst Hackett haunts the listener with his thick atmospheric song-writing. Unlike in some records, where bands get confused with the feelings they try to evoke, Hackett knows exactly what he is doing, as the deep and blackened tracks progress and flow into each other with brilliance as the melancholic environment provides the listener with one of the most interesting and unforgettable experiences they will ever have.

3. Man Overboard Lyrics.
