Van Der Graaf Generator is back! In their fifth studio album, Godbluff, the first after they reformed in 1975, the band displays their trade progressive rock, but with a whole host of new sounds. Peter Hammill, songwriter and bandleader, had left the group after Pawn Hearts and focused on his own, very introspective works. He brought this darker, quieter tone back, evidenced by, "The Undercover Man," the lead track on the album, which begins at a whisper.

But Van Der Graaf Generator builds to a roar, as always, and while the original album included only four tracks, critics and fans alike were sold on these soon-to-be classic tunes. A 2005 reissue included two of the group's live performances, 'Forsaken Gardens' and, 'A Louse Is Not A Home' - songs off of Hammill's "The Silent Corner and the Empty Stage,"recorded in Rimini, Italy. Godbluff is a tour de force, and no fans of Van Der Graaf Generator will want to miss the band, newly reunited, proving they hadn't lost their stride.
