When it came time for reuniting the members of Van Der Graaf, this change in direction had its effect on the band's post-1975 music.

One more time, Van Der Graaf Generator create a success with this album, GodBluff. However, Pawn Hearts still more successful than this one. Also, GodBluff is an album not easy to reach, to understand... At your first listenning, you'll probably say that this album is a little bit disappointing, but keep listenning!! You'll love it!

A pure winner, from the instrumentation to the lyrics. Scorched Earth shines as does Sleepwalkers.

||Van Der Graaf Generator at their finest|
Anyone familiar with Van Der Graaf Generator should be ecstatic that Godbluff is finally available on CD. While I enjoy all of their releases, this is my absolute favorite. The song "Scorched Earth" alone is reason enough to purchase this CD. The musicians are at their best and the band shines as a tight, cohesive unit. As usual, Hammill's lyrics demand close listening for maximum enjoyment. There are only 4 songs on this CD, but all 4 are top notch. No filler here. Get it now before it becomes unavailable again. Enjoy !!!

||Makes '70's Genesis sound like Alan Jackson!!!!!!|
This album, and all the others by Van Der Graaf Generator, are what you've been missing in Prog-Rock if you've only heard Yes, Genesis, or even ELP or Pink Floyd! Only Genesis and King Crimson came anywhere close to the intensity of this very overlooked band. Even Johnny Rotten was a big fan! Picture Genesis' "Nursery Chryme" with a lead saxophone and louder guitars, and you'll get the picture. The sound is most like early Genesis, but darker and with the same sort of dark lyrics. And after you finish listening, go check out The Mars Volta!!!!!
