4 stars Probably even 4.5 stars.

Wow! Somehow, I had never listened to a Van Der Graaf Generator album. When you find yourself listening to a classic group that you had missed, its kind of exciting. Will you like them? And especially if you do, how will it change your view of the other music that was being played at the time and that came afterward?

Godbluff is a kind of voice driven, rough progressive music which I find very different from the other music out at the time. And while Godbluff certainly holds up well on its own after all of these years, especially the organ work, it is really the vocals that amaze.

Godbluff is one of the highest rated albums on this site. I am happy to have enjoyed it so much and to add VDGG to the ranks of the great progressive groups of the 70s.
