On par with VdGG’s ’70sera masterpieces, these compositions rework the irregular meters, angular riffing, impassioned vocals, literate lyrics, and other components of the iconoclastic band’s legacy into songs that are eminently relevant— and relatively accessible—now. Peter Hammill (guitar/piano/vocals), Hugh Banton (keys), and Guy Evans (drums) majestically soar, scorch, sparkle, and continually surprise while framing Hammill’s introspective, scathing, poignant, and oblique lyrics—and Hammill’s guitar playing is tighter and more diverse than ever. Esoteric.
