4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it... just, 27 Feb. 2006
This review is from: H To He Who Am The Only One (Audio CD)
VDGG ploughed their own field in music, not obviously influenced by anybody, not obviously caring what anybody thought of them. The result was 3 of the most involving, moving, and sometimes shocking recordings in rock history.
The sound quality of the album is worth paying the money for, especially if you have one of the various poor-quality vinyl reissues of this record like I have. This is probably the most accessible of the early VDGG recordings (although that's not saying much). Tracks like 'Killer' and 'Lost' demonstrate the band's ability to be progressive, in the true sense of the word, while at the same time being one of the very few 'prog' bands who could actually hold a groove. And then a track like the Live-in-the-studio cut of Octopus demonstrates how close to the edge of the control they always were - it's an edgy, uneasy listen especially if you already know the studio version, but full of fire and energy. On my "Desert Island" I would have to have one VDGG recording and although Pawn Hearts would probably be that one, I'd reccomend this one for anyone unfamiliar with their work.
