5 stars For the people who like "Pawn Hearts","A Black Box" and "Roaring Forties".Or to put it simple,people who love the more epic tracks out of the impressive Hammill oeuvre."Incoherence"is a concept-album about the shortcomings and other difficulties with language.A problem which Peter Hammill knows like no other.There is one long track here from over 40 min.Assisted by longterm collaborators like David Jackson and Stuart Gordon,the overal sound is a cross between "Clutch" and "What Know?".Beautifull melodies,where Hammill seems to have a patent on, and violent complexity are woven together as whole in a way we all know from previous outings.I would recommand this cd to the lover of progressive- and even RIO related music.Why is this man still relatively unknown compared to Robert Wyatt,Tom Waits and others.In his already impressive backcatalogue,you won`t find a really bad record.Masterpieces on the other hand are there in a quantity no other artist or group has ever achieved.Essential for everyone who likes inventive and original music!
