5 stars Goldbluff ,, one of few progressive rock Epics )))))) Van Der Graaf Generator , what a symbolic name to use for a band in the 70's . I had all VDGG since 1974 , but i wasn't into this kind of music , extremely complexed , At first sight , i thought that this band plays German folk rock or even Hard rock . I was really into German bands like Amon duul , can , Kraftwerk and so many others , but , unfortunately their composition was nearly satisfying to my taste at that time much more than VDGG . So , what can i say about Peter Hammil's & team now , after discovering 3 of the best releases ever in the world of progressive music ( Golbluff , Pawn Hearts & H to HE ) . iF , by any means , Yes , King Crimson , Genesis , E.L.P , started a new era of progressive in the early 70's , i believe that VDGG . gave it the right blend . IMO , if i want to choose for Goldbluff another tittle , i will choose the Dark side of Progressive rock . What was really remarkable in this excellent piece of art was the perfect matching between lyrics & vocals , harmonies & performances , and after all the AMBIENT COMPLEXITY , Peter Hamill's vocal touches your feeling by getting to your brain first , by composing maybe the best lyrics for this purpose , Hugh Benton's tracks everywhere in this work , Wind instruments crying , shouting , celebrating , knocking , whispering . What a wonderful piece of art that i'm enjoying after 34years from purchase .............OOOOOUUUUUUUFFFFFFF ...... bRAVO VDGG // Tracks Toni
