This isn't so much a review of the songs and technical apptitude - just a couple of comments. I just have to comment on this album :)

I honestly can't remember when I first heard this album. I must have been a child.
The reason I say this is that one day, when I was 20 something I found an old carrier bag with a load of tapes n stuff from when my parents moved. Inside was one labelled Sunfighter - it wasn't.

But anyway, I played it - for curiosities sake (and because when you grow up you realise your parents often have good taste in music - if only because it often influences yours without you realising).

I recognised Killer from somewhere - but couldn't put my finger on it.
House with no Door sent shivers up my spine and my hairs stood on end. The song is amazing but I couldn't for the life of me remember where I heard it.

Searching the net for Sunfighter returned no results - cos the tape was mislabelled :) (Typical of many students, whether now or 30 years ago).

Anyway, I suppose I'm trying to say that this album is pretty amazing on some level because when I first heard it as an adult I could remmeber snippets and melodies that I could only have heard as a kid.
Turns out my dad was into it before I was born ('74).

But as a prog rock fan anyway (fave being the neo-prog Marillion) this (and The Moody Blues, Nazareth and Sunfighter, King Crimson etc) probably had a massive influence.

So if you like classic rock stuff check it out - definately worth it.
If you're into anything melodic and rocky check it out anyway - who knows - you might recognise bits.

A fantastic album and great remastering, it sounds as good (if not better) than the original pink label vinyl and the extra tracks are well worth listening to. Extra tracks and extra info (expanded booklet) make it essential for any VdGG fans.

A unique sound from a unique band. The music covers the whole spectrum from the sad and beautiful to the dark and insane. If you thought that music from this time was totally guitar oriented, you will be surprised.

Early VDGG material when they were still experimenting with alternative sounds and producing original songs that were quite strange but grew upon you with successive listenings. A must have along with Pawn Hearts.
