3 stars When World Record was released, 1976, Hammill was already very occupied with his solo career, so as a consequence, this is one of his and the band's worst albums. Also in this album Hammill seems to be losing a bit of his magical and fascinating voice that haunted all the previous VDGG albums. Even all the other members don't seem to be so good.

The first two songs are pretty good, they kind of reminded me of their old days, but the other three tracks are mediocre; even he twenty minute piece tends to be boring and flat. The song I hated was the final one, "Wandering"; I found it very annoying and completely useless, I guess because I didn't like Hammill's work at all.

An album of medium level, and easily forgettable. It could have been much better.
