5.0 classicBizango | May 26th 15

from start to finish an excellent album. ph had really hit his stride and just in time to reform van der graaf generator.rnadir's big chance is often credited with prefiguring punk rock and this is sort of true. things were moving in that direction and peter hammill certainly did his part to nudge it along. but he had been doing that all along. rthis album is certainly among hammill's most consistent all the way through. and unlike some of his other albums from this peak period it's sequenced just about perfectly. starting off strong, softer in the middle, building back up and finishing with a bang. up there with the classic "concept albums" (some more developed concepts than others) by his fellow english eccentricssuch as: ziggy, taking tiger mountain and captain lockheed and the starfighters. ra perfect introduction to the music of peter hammill being possibly his most accessible and cohesive works as a whole. truly a classic.
