4 stars I have always been intrigued by the music of Peter Hammill and Van der Graaf Generator. Peter's music is powerfull, emotional, creative, original, but pretty dark. There have been years that I was waiting for a new album to release. At a certain moment, I realised that Hammills music was mostly appealling to the moments that I was in a more or less dark mood. Sometimes, music attaches to things that happen in your life which impress a lot. By a coincidence, this album was released in the time that my oboe teacher (and my wife's oboe teacher !) committed suicide. Time to burn is the song that attaches to this tragedy. Maybe this is the reason to avoid listening to this album for quite some years. But now listening for the third time in a row to this album again, I realise again that this is really good album. It has do with sadness, it is dark, but pure, emotional, certainly one of the best of Hammmill. End in the end .... "smile"
