5 stars Im entering this review with caution...as EVERYTHING had allready been said, about this absolutely amazing album, and i do not have any words that my good colleague Peter Rideout, havent already used, and he really pinpointet that very musical experience in a sublime way (hes got a way with words!) so...what am i doing here?? Well..im trying to make a point,as i recently read in the progarchives forum.....which/who were the first prog group/experience ...in your(all of us) opinion??! Now, i do not participate in this- (or any other) forum...not arrogance...but sheer lack of time!! However...one could argue whether it was Pink Floyd etc. One thing is certain..in my mind, it is absolutely sure that VDGG , Gentle giant (& of course.. Pink Floyd) were the forerunners of this particular kind of music. I rest my case...all has been said....this album is :beautiful ,horrifying,extreme and very progressive!!! And yes...." A plague of lighthouse keepers" is by far, an extraordinary song!!! I have several other VDGG favorites..but this one keeps haunting me!!
