The Truth
4 stars Man oh man Van Der Graaf didn't get enough attention! This album is awesome! Killer could've been a killer mainstream prog song, (it sounds a lot like 21st Century Schizoid Man only a little bit better,) with it's jazzy theme and dark depressing lyrics. The lyrics are probably the reason it didn't become a hit because they are to bleak. On House With No Door the balladry is amazing when you compare it to the first track because of how much slower the pace is. The lyrics are just as, or maybe more, depressing as Killer but it makes for a great lyrical theme much like Pink Floyd. Emperor In His War Room is the song that keeps this from being a masterpiece. It's just slow and the theme isn't catchy enough to like. However they make up for it with Lost, another jazzy tune, which blasts off with excitement the minute it starts and just gets better as it goes on. Pioneers Over C has one of the catchiest bass lines I've ever heard and makes for a great listen! Overall what makes this album good is David Jacksons killer saxophone playing and Peter Hammills obscene yet amazing voice and songwriting! Great stuff here!
