3 stars Third VdGG album is better than their fourth, "Pawn Hearts", for sure. Even if not perfect, but you can find some melodies, some structurised songs and much more music, then in their next work.

Again, music is better mixed and recorded, but sound is far from perfect. But at least I can hear really strong drumming, many sax solos and quite nice ( in moments) keyboards. Hammil voice again is main accent, but at least all other sounds are better balanced.

Still using more usual album structure ( 5 songs instead of "Pawn Hearts" 3 long amorphous compositions), in combination with much better drums it build much more musical atmosphere all around.

Here you can find almost all VdGG is known - Hammil voice, sax solos , some moody melodies, some rhythm breaks. I think in fact that album represents VdGG music of that period as the best example.

Again, I think it is far from masterpiece and sounds very dated now. But at least it's enough listenable with many interesting moments.
