5 stars Vital is absolutely vital for any Van Der Graaf Generator fan. Fans should be diving into the live stuff to increase their collections, so this should already be in there. What I really like about Vital is that it is less like anything studio related, and more like a raw concert with the great musicianship and vocal performances you would expect. If you are new to the group, this is not a place to start. You are better off getting familiar with Pawn Hearts, Godbluff, Still Life, and the rest of their amazing studio albums. Once you have gone that route, this album will please as an amazing live offering from an early lineup. I would not call this essential to any progressive rock fan since Van Der Graaf Generator is an acquired taste, but a must buy for any fan of the group.
