3 stars This record sounds a bit like "Godbluff", with the always VERY, VERY, VERY irritating voice of Peter Hamill: he just kills the music with his monolithic, too loud & angry voice. This record reminds me Jethro Tull circa "Passsion Play" and Gentle Giant circa "Three friends". "Meurglys 3" is very long, maybe too long (20 minutes), but it contains some interesting prog-jazz parts. Many sax parts are well played too, although sometimes irritating. The record ends with the good "Wondering" song, which is among the best VDGG's tracks. The keyboards mainly consist in organ, piano and rare mellotron parts. I prefer "Godbluff".
