4 stars Nice follow-up to _Present_. Many of the tracks sound as though they have a Van Der Graaf Generator twist on early '70s Deep Purple and Gentle Giant. A very bottom heavy sound. Actually, the lengthier tracks remind me of later Talk Talk and Bark organic post-rock with a jazzy feel. Amazing what VDGG 3 can pull off with such a small collective. _Drop Dead_ should be on the radio as a single. Great stuff and highly recommended. _Interference Patterns_ should be listened to at high volume, preferably at 11. Probably the most technical I've heard Van Der Graaf Generator. Excellent counterpoint. Of note, David Jackson is absent on this recording but he is hardly missed. Every serious prog.rock fan should not disicriminate and embrace the _...And Then There Were Three_ version of VDGG.
