5 stars As I am listening to this album for the first time, it is to me like unearthing a VdGG 70s classic that I missed first time round.

It reminds me of a cross between World Record and Still Life. Whoever said there was no guitar on this album obviously doesnt have an ear for detail.

I will not go into great detail about each track, as that has already been done.

The Hurlyburly wonderful instrumental to get you into the mood for whats to come.

Interference Patterns my fave track on the album, an epic in less than 4 minutes cant be bad eh.

The Final Reel could become a VdGG classic.

Lifetime a relaxing tune, has a good ambience to it.

Drop Dead just to get back on your feet after the chill out on Lifetime.. very heavy, thumping good beat

Only in a Whisper back to relaxation with a nice laid back track. The classic prog is there to hear.

All That Before.. Hey, psychedelia for the 00s.. I heard this (as well as Lifetime) at the gig back in 2007. Loved it then, and now I finally have it, I know I will play this track to death.

Over The Hill.. Ahh, the VdGG epic. A mixture of everything going on here in 12 1/2 minutes.

(We Are) Not Here If I had my way, this would be a single..

To sum it all up, 5 stars.

Frippertron | 5/5 |
