5 stars There can't be doubt about it: Godbluff is the high point of VDGG's many-folded career.

The album consists of four songs that are approximately of the same length, and this gives the record a good cohesion: it is easy to put the separate works into place, and you can easily tell at what point of a journey you are in at any specific time.

The Undercover Man and Scorched Earth prepare the listener very well for the follow-up on the B-side: Arrow must be the absolute pinnacle of VDGG music/Peter Hammill poetry. The Sleepwalkers is a brilliant conclusion, where the somewhat gloomy atmosphere comes down to the earth by David Jackson's lovely easy-listen-jazz riffs.

Van Der Graaf Generator are dead serious, and they write mean and dark songs. Just imagine yourself a band, that with prog fans goes down like West Ham United, the art world nods approvingly towards, and that the punk rock generation thought very highly of. All that is embodied in Godbluff. If you haven't listened to it yet, get yourself a copy ASAP. This IS prog on the crest of the wave.
