Peter Hammil is a driving force in the prog scene.
No matter how many years pass by, it seems that he has always something new to deliver. Roaring Forties is no exception to that rule.
Dispite this is one of the less known PH albums, still his hand is present and smoothly touches the music with bright sparkles...
Off course the more purists will whisper for his VDGG years, and I'm not the one to blame them but, really, you should give PH a second listen and, at least, enjoy his effort to always bring pointfull lyrics to Prog music.
