Masterpiece from first song to the last one.

I would say this is high class album from a high class band. With this release Van Der Graaf Generator established themselves as one of the most brilliant bands from the '70. It could be that is only a matter of personal taste but for me they are absolutely my favorites.

Everything is extraordinary: musicality, the way instrument are played, lyrics, the voice of Peter Hammil, David Jackson's sax.

I had recently listen to this album and everytime when I'm doing this the music-the sounds are keep flowing in my mind days after this. I feel like I've been Doomed to vanish in the flickering light, disappearing to a darker night. There is so many poetry in the lyrics and it is very clear that there was a big deal of attention paid to this aspect. You will simply be overwhelm by the lyrics.

Maybe is hard to imagine that it is possible to combine concept from modern physics with poetry and music but Van Der Graaf Generator were able to do this in a perfect way.Pioneers over C is a good example of this. The song tries to go through a journey and imagine the human condition during the time when the first astronauts will experience this. This is basically a fictional song and there is no scientific claim behind this song. Incredible song !

Lost is a song about loneliness and has very good lyrics and overall mood. There is big amount of perdition and confusion which arose from this song.

There is a kind of music which you will in the end love(There's a house with no door).

You wore different moods but the right one was never around(I wore my moods like different sets of clothes but the right one was never around).

Is simple. Try this one. You will not regret. This will grow in you and in time you will be able to fully appreciate it.

Thank you Van Der Graaf Generator for this great experience on this great and wonderfull realm of music.
