Good to read on sofasound.com that Peter Hammill is recording a new album, titled "All Of This" can't wait.
 
"All Of This", "And Close As This", "This"....???

...which is like saying that Peter Gabriel hasn't done anything good since 'From Genesis to Revelation'.
 
(And, of course, that's very untrue. Gabe only lost it after PG 2 from '78)

Woo.
 
Wasn't really bowled over with his latest solo album nor te recent VDGG so perhaps I'll wait to buy.
 
Still good news though.

Since the Aerosol Grey Machine??  What about "Black Box", or "The Future Now", or "Chameleon?"  Sorry NurseryCryme89, I couldn't disagree more, PH albums are a running exposition of what Hammill's working on, or where his mind is at when the album is released.  Peter Gabriel suggested that he would do the same with his solo career but quickly went back to the mega-album/tour concept. 

Kudos to Hammill for a great set of albums, with some clinkers (which he acknowledges on his website) but also with some real highlights.  My world would be much duller without songs like "Vision", "The Future Now", "Energy Vampires", "Here Come the Talkies", "Invisible Ink", "Jargon King", "Flight", "A Kick to Kill the Kiss", "Losing Faith in Words", "A Motor-Bike in Africa", "My Experience", "Everyone You Hold", "The Noise", "Pushing Thirty", "Stupid", &c. &c.  For me, Singularity was a great release, expressive and articulate with some real kickers.
