4 stars VDGGS have always been a strange band: in the classic line-up there was no bass guitar,litteeletric guitar, a great organist,an exceptional saxophonist, a notable drummer and a great singer, the creative genius of Generator. I think that without one of them, they could not been the same, music now sveet and melancholy, then schizoid and hallucinated, that nobody was able to imitate. the double cd are the reunion show after29 years!!!!!!!!!! Errors and nervouses are perceivable also in the audio format!!!! I have seen the gig of Gardon Riviera in Italy, and they have played better and with more confidence. Certainly the tracklist was not thta I hoped for, missed some gems as A plague (too much long), Lost,Arrows or Pioneerm but there are pieces from through all the Hammill/Banton/Jackson/Evans production plus In the black room, fron a solo album of Hammill in which played all the band. Highlist of the evening are the beautiful version of Lemming, Masks, Childlike and obviously Killer. A huge, unexpected and no hoped come back of the best progressive band of every time!! In 2007 they'll tour without Jackson!!! I don't Dare to Imagine As they will Be, I Believe That they will Perform Pieces Not Played In 2005. I hope in some italian gigs, so I'll go and see the show,confident
