3 stars I want to purchase the new DVD from GG. It's one of my projects. Before laughing out loud at the lack of challenge in my life, may I inform you to fully appreciate the DVD you must know a bit of what The Power and the Glory is about. Well, this album is much more colder than Octopus and the brasero that was Acquiring the Taste. Plus, Phil Shulman is gone. I'll miss his voice. He used to sing louder than Minnear but softer than Dereck. Oh well, it kinda shows in the writing that he's gone. A big chunk of the warmth of GG is gone...but replaced. Replaced with a more proggish approach. But a cold one. So Sincere is showing what I mean. But we are treated like kings is this record. Aspirations is a delicate and soothing song. Minnear's voice is so gentle. Plus the acoustic guitar + the light Hammond are perfect together. A great 4 minutes. After that Cogs in Cogs rocks harder. It's hard to describe GG with words, but the best is to listen carefully. After owning the first 5 albums, this one gave me more of a hard time. Still an honorable purchase, but must be tamed to appreciate. Better make some coffee right now, the night could be long....
