5 stars A black cover for a black album : VDGG is the dark side of prog : dissonance and even cacophony but, most of all, true music. These guys are not the super amazing technicians you may find in modern prog but lord, what they make is far away from sterile demonstrations. You may like or not Peter Hammill's voice and the emphasis of the lyrics, but you should listen to this record. Savage riffs with jazzy sound where sax and organ dominates, a very good drumming too and ENERGY ! The quiet parts won't leave you peaceful for the dark color's still there. Arrow seems to me a little weaker inthe album. Godbluff is my favourite from VDGG with Pawn hearts, although I must make a special mention to Meurglys III (World Record) and la Rossa (Still Life) as single pieces masterpieces.
