4 stars "H to HE..." (which is a chemistry formula for something) has a different sound to it compare to VDGG's first two albums. it's sound is way more progressive unified. it's the first time we see 'movements' in VDGG's pieces (what would take an important part in 'pawn hearts') in 'The Emperor in his War-Room' and 'Lost' (two movements each). 'killer' is one of prog's best pieces ever in my opinion. you can say that this album got VDGG the final stamp as a true prog-rock band. it's another step towards VDGG's best albums (and among prog- rock's best as well) - 'pawn hearts', 'godbluff', and 'still life'. you can also see the inspiration of the landing on the moon which were common in prog music at this time in the closing piece 'pioneers over c'. in conclusion - it's a very good album, but the best is yet to come!
