Excellent

Here's a typical Peter Hammill' song taken from one of his countless solo albums. This was written in 1974, one year before Godbluff came out;

Sounds pretty much like some great VdGG, isn't it.

This is a great record; some of Hammill's best lyrics and vocals.

I haven't yet tired of listening to VDGG's insane soundscapes on their 70's album, and 'Still Life' (though I believe it is slightly less memorable than the previous releases) is one such example. This band is just too underrated.

My fave VDGG right here. So consistent it's like reading a good book.

Have been listening to the album and wanted to share my thoughts about this being their best album. Good to see I'm not the only one around. Godbluff is outstanding, but thins has way more feeling in it. My Room (Waiting for Wonderland) has to be one of the best songs ever written. The saxophone is so emotional.

That breakdown of the t/t is the most brutal thing ever written in music

I still feel like Sputnik should LOVE this thing. Kinda strange how overlooked it is.
