  • The Online Aerosmith Store! --- at Rock This Way
    can start off by saying that this band most likely sounds like nothing you ve ever heard before The guitars do not have a very prominent role in this band s sound instead it s organs and more than anything else saxophones that plays the lead role while Evans keep it all together with some impressive drum playing With that said the man who makes this album so fantastic is mainly the band leader Peter Hammill This man has an amazing voice sometimes sounding a bit like David Bowie sometimes quite like Rob Halford ex Judas Priest but first and foremost he sounds like himself and noone else In the introductory quote it was said that Hammill was trying to be the Hendrix of the voice That one may need some explaining This expression refers to Hammill having such an amazing original and impressive style of singing that it can be compared to what Jimi Hendrix did for the way of playing guitar This if anything ought to tell you that band is something really out of the ordinary I find it hard to explain how the individual tracks sound as they are very varied and not very conventional Experimental is a word that come to mind if I am to describe them I once heard that some person considered VDGG to play suicide music I m not sure what exactly he meant by that OK it s dark and quite depressive at times but still There might be some little ounche of truth to it though it s definitely not uplifting music It s not something you d put on at a party or such if you know what I mean It s probably best suited for being experienced yes I use that word rather than listened to in solitude Alone lying in your bed in the dark listening to Pawn Hearts with headphones that can be quite an immense emotional experience What about lyrics then Well with vocals the way Hammill delivers them he could sing whatever crap he wanted to and it still would come across as thoughtful I guess However while not always easy to understand I think the lyrics for a big part of the album are quite strong and poetic Perhaps it s all clichés without much meaning behind the words but I don t want to belive that and instead find parts of the lyrics quite thoughtful For example we can take the first track Lemmings Amongst all the dark grim greasy machinery slides on the rails young minds and bodies on steel spokes impaled and depressive what cause is there left but to die there s also a glimmer of light in the end Cowards are they who run today the fight is beginning death offers no hope we must grope for the unknown answer look to yourselves and the stars yes and in the end what choice is there left but to live in the hope of saving our children s children s little ones What choice is there left but to try If I have understood the lyrics for the track correctly the big picture is about thinking for yourself and not like lemmings following the masses into disaster all that I could see were those that I would dearly love to share with crashing on quite blindly to the sea Actually the entire album ends on a bright note changing the pessimistic All things are apart into All things are a part after even admitting that It doesn t feel so very bad now I think the end is the start begin to feel very glad now It seems as if when I am to write about an album I really like I always write too much This much text is probably too much for anyone to bother to read Therefor I ll now try to end this edition of The Webmaster s Pick Perhaps I should first point out that it s not the most easy album to listen to however The first few times I listened to it after making the purchase I was very dissapointed I felt it hadn t much to offer musically How I could think so is a mystery to me now however as I now consider this to be one of the finest albums ever released With that said I hope that You too will eventually get to discover the wonderful music of Van Der Graaf Generator If you haven t already today would actually not be a day too early Cristoffer Eriksson June 15 2002 AMG Review The group s third album and its second most popular at one time this record was a major Crimson cult item due to the presence of Robert Fripp on guitar but it has more to offer than that The opening track Lemmings will call to mind Gentle Giant with its eerie vocal passages juxtaposed against extended sax keyboard and guitar driven instrumental passages and the weird keyboard and percussion interlude Hammill vocalizes in a more traditional way on Man Erg against shimmering organ swells and Guy Evans very expressive drumming before the song goes off on a tangent by way of David Jackson s saxes and some really weird time signatures The monumental Plague of Lighthouse Keepers taking up an entire side of the LP shows the same kind of innovation that characterized King Crimson s first two albums but without the discipline and restraint needed to make the music manageable the punning titles of the individual sections of this piece which may have been done for the same reason that Crimson gave those little subtitles to its early extended tracks to protect the full royalties for the composer only add to the confusion The band was trying for something midway between King Crimson and Genesis and came out closer to the former at least instrumentally Hammill s vocals are impassioned and involving almost like an acting performance similar to Peter Gabriel s singing

highlights the best of their past work is that Aerosmith really is one of the best hard rock bands that the U S has ever produced I don t think that they set out to be an important group no great
