3 stars DAAU's sixth album is a bit more of what the group has dealt us so far, but this time, it's served more carefully than Life Transmission, without the awful and ill-advised musical extrapolations. Still the original quartet at the centre of the group, although augmented with drummer Poriau and electric bassist Banovic whenever suitable, but also getting help from Angelique (singing on two tracks) and cellist Wiggel on one more.

The music is a usual mix of eastern European folk/gypsy jazz and more classical music, thus fitting perfectly in the mould of avant-prog and finding a spot on the Belgian chamber prog scene. TGG is probably closest to DAAU's self-titled debut, developing the same ambiances, but Simon Lemski's accordion is much more dominant. For this writer, this means bad news, as I'm no fan of that instrument, especially used in a lead role. A relatively even album where only the centrepiece stands out; easily the best track on the album is Midnight Train where the group performs as a septet.

Just another average album from our Antwerp musical anarchists, whom had by then managed to influence a newer generation of musicians from their hometown into forming Aranis, strongly inspired by their mentors. .
