2 stars In going through more than a few VDGG albums, I'm curious if the ratings tend to be submitted mainly by their fans. I've listened to their classics, re-listened & again, nothing. Not bad, but the backing band seems to lack imagination that matches Peter's lyrics. And that is probably what kept them out of the majors, sales & mainstream success wise as opposed to Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, Pink Floyd et al. The melodies & sonic tablet seem not to vary from one album to another. Every now & then they break out, but those moments/songs tend to be scattered through the collection. The example on this album is La Rossa. But for a legendary band, this should be a middling cut, yet for me is the one standout here.
