Van Der Graaf Generator - Present [2CDs] (2005)

Symphonic Progressive Rock

If there is a band who never got worldwide recognition, but belongs on the same patamar occupied by GENESIS, YES, FLOYD, GENTLE GIANT and ELP, this band is VDGG! Frontman Peter Hammill holds one of the most beautiful voices ever heard, with an infinite range of dynamics added to it, giving an odd atmosphere to the usual thoughful lyrics. Switching from sweet to aggressive moods, the vocals outstand upon a peculiar organ oriented music conducted by the geniality of Hugh Banton, yet counterpointed by beautiful saxes and other wind instruments. - http://www.progarchives.com
