5 stars The theme of this record is isolation or loneliness.This third release from the band is more complex and darker than thier previous two albums.

Things get started with "Killers" a dark song that is a fan favourite. I love Peter's vocals on this one, especially the way he carries a note. There is some crazy sax playing that is not melodic at all (haha). "House With No Door" is a mellow tune with gentle vocals, piano, drums and flute.The focus is on the lyrics on this one. "The Emperor In His War Room" is my favourite track, opening with flute. I guess it's kind of redundant to say the vocals are theatrical ...yeah I thought so. I really do enjoy Mr.Fripp's guitar solo more than half way through the song.

"Lost" is a melancholic song about lost love, some great organ play on this one. "Pioneers Over C" is about getting lost in space, and is filled with many tempo and mood shifts. It just seems like a good melody is happening when it stops, this happens a lot in this song. I really like this record, I was reminded of KING CRIMSON at times and enjoyed the flute and sax melodies and of course Mr.Hammill's vocals.

Great album ! Right there with "Pawn Hearts" as my fav VDGG albums.
