Brilliant album! Sounds awesome on vinyl, considering VDGG were predominantly a keyboards, sax, drums and bass band, the lack of lead or rhythm guitar actually aids the dark and often desolate sound collage.

Every redundancy and magniloquence is stripped away and it's only the purest VDGG sound that remains. The songs are harsh, even aggressive, but they are as evocative as their classics (and even more). The best track for me is "The Sleepwalkers", with a somehow 'catchy' organ riff, which is actually written in something like 14/8!
