5 stars "Did he just rhyme 'akimbo' and 'limbo'? I didn't know those were even real words!", you might say. Well, let me reply: you will hear many beautifully interwoven words, besides these, narrating this haunting musical experience. The lyrical and vocal aspects of the album are courtesy of Mr. Peter Hammill, and while these are completely awesome, they are only the beginning. The sax-riddled, bass and keyboard grooves often seem to rise and swell as one instrument and actually feature very little guitar at all. Each of the four tracks seem incredible in their own respects, but flow together very well. From the soft, delicate passages to the screeching in "Arrow", Hammill's voice is really what holds the album together, and he performs excellently throughout. Overall, this is an essential progressive rock album, and VDGG sounds unlike any other band.

Rating 10/10
