|2009 release from the Van der Graf Generator leader, his 29th solo album overall. These new recordings mark a return to solo territory, but in the knowledge that Van der Graf is still an ongoing entity. Peter therefore decided to make this set of recordings a genuinely one-man effort, playing and singing every note on the disc. As might be expected of an artist now more than 40 years into his career, these are adult songs, addressing grown-up themes. This is a worthy, fascinating and mature addition to Peter's body of work, which remains uneasy listening. It doesn't look as if he will be disappearing just yet.
