Hammils voice almost crawls all over the music...which is carefully laid out!

I own several VDGG albums (Thanx mate) that im very fond of...Ii finally got around to this ....and I must say I am blown away, not only by the music but most certainly the lyrics. Peter Hammill must have had some serious dark experiences in his life..to write these kind of lyrics. "killer" is an absolute fantastic track....the haunting theme..the sadness of the voice...the lyrics...ohhhh....darkness indeed. Until now my favorite albums, by this outfit were: "Godbluff" & "Pawn hearts". But now im not so sure about that...as this is an amazing record.....its like you´re drawn into ...ahem...its....inner darkness...that may sound strange to you...but i dare you to listen to this fantastic album....and then tell me im-wrong!! I have allways thought that a good prog record couldnt be without guitar soloing. VDGG has proved me wrong. Still there are some guitar courtesy of Mr. Fripp (need i say King Crimson?)on the track "Emperor, part one". And of course Hammill plays the acoustic now and then. Back to the album....its an absolute stunner of a prog album. Hammils voice almost crawls all over the music...which is carefully laid out!! There are plenty for ALL prog freaks to sink their teeth into...both lyrically and musically.....so dear prog friends, go find this...put it on...pour your favorite drink ..sit in your best chair....lean back....listen....and it´ll all come to you. ENJOY...oh..and by the way..the cover is by none other than :Paul Whitehead. He of Genesis cover fame !!
