3 stars I have to say I prefer the following "Wolf City" over "Carnival in Babylon".

Well, the latter is not a bad album (although a bit uneven) and has plenty to offer as, for example, the memorable opener "C.I.D. in Uruk" and the wonderful highlight "All the Years Round" with its dynamic shift and more accessible female vocal parts (with even delicate passages) by singer Renate Knaup.

The general mood of the record is almost like the band was sunken in the mist and is not as dramatic as the band's earlier records. Nevertheless, it is dark and creepy enough to satisfy any lover of Van der Graaf Generator.

Andrea Cortese | 3/5 |
