Van Der Graaf Generator - H to He, Who Am the Only One 1970

Prog
Never listened to VDGG in my early days, and just started collecting albums. So far, this is the best one I've heard.

Van Der Graaf Generator - Pawn Hearts 1971

Eclectic Prog Rock
I have to admit that I really don't like this album all that much, YET. I fully expect that it will eventually grow on me, but I am new to VDGG and I find this hard to enjoy at the moment. I am a bit better with Peter Hammill's voice than when I started with VDGG, but I still don't really care for David Jackson's saxophone playing. At times the sax playing is decent, but mostly it just sounds like he is strangling a cat.

Van Der Graaf Generator - Godbluff 1975
9.7
Atmospheric Prog
My first VDGG album. And my preferred VDGG album. If you love 70's Prog "Godbluff" is a must. Not aggressive but atmospheric, "Godbluff" is a perfect album. Only 4 songs, or better 3 (because "The Undercover man" and "Scorched Earth" are a double track), but fundamentals. With athmospheric Rock keyboards and guitar and also aggressive but always sweet vocals part. Very Rock, but extremely 70's not Symphonic Prog album, at the end.
