in my opinion this is the most rewarding listen overall from the the reformed (2005-now) VDGG. the live discs and videos are cool too. the reformation era albums are decent. but, for me this comes the closest to the excitement of hearing the original VDGG albums though. having said that, it does not necessarily sound LIKE old VDGG. these insturmental and "experimental" recordings are exactly what's missing from the newest albums for me.

"Alt" is another collection of outtakes, experiments and accidents, in a similar vein as Time Vaults, Present (disc 2), Unsung and The Appointed Hour. It shows that even when unconstrained by the confines of the "song", these guys click, and can produce beautiful sounds. There's the usual marrying of drums, organ, piano, guitar and synths. The first stand-out track for me is #7 (Repeat After Me) but there is so much here you'll just have to make up your own minds. No vocals, and a wide range of musical styles - elements of The Necks in places bring a smile. Plan to listen to the whole thing, and take a few listens to digest what's going on here - it's well worth it.

To the worshipers of symphonic progressive rock, this title can not miss in your collection, magnificent band, with excellent instrumental arrangements

Short and sweet, this sounded like a practice session of the band, and not a completed album. This was a let down, especially after just listening to "The least we can do is wave to each other" for the first time.
