Van Der Graaf Generator has a new album out called A Grounding in Numbers and it recently got a sterling review from John Kelman up at All About Jazz.
Other decades-old groups may continue to mine their past catalogs for legions of fans hungry for a bit of nostalgia, but Van Der Graaf Generator, instead, continues to create compelling new music that takes its innovations of 40 years ago into a new millennium. A Grounding in Numbers possesses everything that made Van Der Graaf Generator great back in the day, while its avoidance of so many of classic prog’s trappings mean it remains relevant, meaningful and, most of all, vital.
Someone has posted the entire album up at YouTube so here’s “Highly Strung”.
