3 stars One of the icons of progressive rock returns...

Their previous album had some very good songs and I was hoping for the lightning to strike twice. I was not happy to hear that Jackson had left the band and my expectations was downgraded. But Hammil, Evans and Banton is still in the band. But I am missing the saxophone..........

The opening track is also a bummer. It is followed by the inadequate Interference Patterns. But the VDGG trademark sound is there, at least. That's the only joy. The third track, the ballad The Final Reel is a good song. It is black and melancholic in the VDGG vein. The twelve minutes long Over The Hill is a glance back to the heydays of VDGG and the best track of the album. A timely reminder of what VDGG did in the 1970s. The rest of the tracks is OK.

The main problem with Trisector is the lack of one or two outstanding tunes. Trisector are just OK and nothing more. It satisfy the fans and nothing more. But I prefer their albums from the 1970s.

3 stars.
