5 stars This album (along with TN's "Live at the Target") makes me turn my attention from Heavy Metal to Pro Rock, back in the late '80s, when I listened to a Cassette tape copy that I borrowed from a teacher of Philosophy at my last year at School and I still listen to it (today one of the 3 CD editions i own of it) frequently (the Cassette was only '60 minutes long, one side with Godbluff / the other one with Live at the Target so everytime that "The Sleepwalkers" / "Sequences" passes the 5 / 10 minutes i have this strange feeling "mmmmm this is new to me"). This album opened the pandora's box in my mind, from that winter day on (back in '89), my life changed for good, Hammill / VDGG is part of the soundtrack of my life...hope to have it at my funeral too....this is the best piece of popular music recorded, ever....

A must times soft (The Undecover Man) then extra raw (Arrow)...but mainly fluid and exact (Scorched Earth & The Sleepwalkers) times jazz leathery (Scorched Earth & The Sleepwalkers), then strangely epic (Arrow)...precise (total time: 35'51") no a single second wasted...try'll love/hate it ...10 stars
