3 stars I honestly do not understand how this is the highest rated VDGG album on this site. I probably have a problem with this album, but after two masterpieces such as "H to He" and "Pawn Hearts", "Godbluff" is in my opinion a mediocre album, and here the great Hammill is really irritating for two reasons: 1) he has replaced his piano, which in the past created some great atmospheres, with a terrible Hohner Clavinet; 2) His beautiful and sweet voice is almost gone in this album, often replaced by shouted phrases. Moreover the songs have trivial construction and arrangements, and are not so progressive. The cha-cha-cha of "Sleepwalkers" is really ridiculous, while "Arrow" is for me the worst song ever written by VDGG. The only great song is "Scorched Earth", especially in the central part, that remind to a certain "Man-Erg". Ultimately a hiccup, a little later remedied by the very good "Still Life". 2,6 stars.
