5 stars Remember how Yes claimed they had a "ridiculously successful comeback album" with 90125? That was probably in a commercial sense. In an artistic sense, this album is probably the most deserving of such a phrase. VDGG came back from their few year hiatus and punched you right in the face at around the 4:30 mark of The Undercover Man.

There isn't a weak moment anywhere on this album. The two halves of the first track are incredible. The two halves of the second track are incredible. The three parts of Arrow are incredible, even the questionable at first mini-jam in the first few minutes. The uncountable number of parts of The Sleepwalkers? You guessed it, incredible. Much like a Foxtrot or a In A Glass House, it's wall to wall amazingness.

VDGG is often considered the ultimate saxophone-driven prog band. Another reason is record is fantastic is that going along with the previous sentence, this is probably the ultimate saxophone-driven prog album.

I believe this is one of the five best albums ever and don't recommend that you're ever apart from it!
