3 stars A good album, but nothing spectacular. There are beautiful melodies and great moments here and there, but the album, as a whole, lacks force. The good old VDGG still this note here, with the creativity of harmonies, melodies, rhythmic session, complex times, elegant arrangements, beautiful lyrics. Also it is a very well recorded album. What makes me give only 3 stars, as I said before, is the lack of strength, lack of vitality of the musicians in the performance of these good compositions (which is forgivable given the age of the guys). Listen to this album gives a certain sense of want to hear it live, with more energy, more powerfull. But still it's an album that's worth for every lover of VDGG / Peter Hammill. In short: another decent album from a band who almost makes no mistakes.

Ps: Sorry friends. I was wrong about the bonus track. As I downloaded the album on the Internet, it came with the title of Special Edition, with the bonus track. I did not mean to spread rumors, I just believed in what I downloaded. I retreat the wrong information, I apologize to the band and the fans, I should have researched on the internet about this issue before publishing the review. No more, I keep my review.
