5 stars The second of "The Fantastic Four" releases begins with the nightmarish "Killer", composed by Hammill, Hugh Banton and old pal Chris Judge Smith (VDGGs first drummer and the man who created the name Van Der Graaf Generator). Driven by a powerful sax riff, this song is a perfect opener for a perfect album. "House With No Door" is softer, a beautiful ballad which agains highlights Jackson (this time on flute). Hugh Banton played bass with his organ's pedals (Nic Potter left the band in the middle of recording sessions). "The Emperor in His War Room" has a very special guest: Robert Fripp on guitar (I wonder how an entire album pairing Hammill and Fripp would sound). Another great song "Lost" follows well. The last song ("Pioneers Over C") is IMHO as classic as "Plague of Lighthouse Keepers", in terms both of lyrics and melodies, but it's not as praised as the side-long epic. Another highly recommended album.
