4 stars Years ago I became very excited about the music of VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and can clearly remember the magic of this discovery to which this day still remains a favourite of mine. "Pawn Hearts" is IMHO a pure masterpiece of progressive art rock from start to finish. "Pawn Hearts" is characterized by the side long epic "A Plague Of Lighthouse Keepers" which is made up of 10 parts and clearly showcases the creative genius of Hammill and the lads. The mix of Hugh Banton's homemade organ sounds with David Jackson's syncopated sax and flute jabs makes this album a great listen. Of course Peter Hammill's light guitar touches and dark lyrics only adds some wonderful depth to this music. VAN DER GRAAF's music always sounds great when heard thru a fine stereo system that can pronounce the deep bass troughs these guys were able to create. A pure essential recording.
